Randy Blue-Eyes — Shelter
Randy Blue-Eyes is a hero for more than one reason. For one, he saved my life, literally. I have depression. He is so loving and cuddly, funny, easy-going, as handsome as he can be, and his fur is so soft and pleasant to touch! The way he greets me at the door when I get home from work makes me more happy than words can describe. When I had suicidal thoughts, I was thinking how sad Randy would be if I just wouldn’t show up one day, that he would not understand why I abandoned him. I picked him from a shelter. We were a match made in heaven from the first time we saw each other. We hugged at the shelter. When he came home he put his paws up and I gave him belly rubs. That was one of the happiest moments in my life. He made himself comfortable immediately on every bed, in every room.
He is also a hero because he helped his traumatized dog brother, Wilbur, who was in our house six months before Randy. Wilbur learned from Randy how to play, how to raise his leg when peeing, how to act like a dog, how not to be afraid as much, how to greet his humans, how to be a pack. Randy would protect Wilbur with his life. When at the vet or taken in for grooming, Randy tries to “save” Wilbur —he thinks Wilbur may get harmed.
Randy is also a hero because he overcame heartworm after treatment. He nearly got euthanized in a kill shelter at first, if he didn’t happen to be a “false negative” back then.
Randy is also a hero because he lets everyone pet him, and makes them smile and be so happy!
