I’m honored that Michelle would think enough of me and Lucky Dog Rescue to feature us in her book… it’s truly incredible. In addition, it was so cool to hang out with her, and I truly appreciated the extra volunteer help she offered. The Mississippi heat can be unbearable, but Michelle was out there busting it with me… walking dogs, cleaning kennels, and playing fetch in the yard.
She gave special attention to each of my babies, and she asked to hear their stories. When I’d start to cry describing the horrors of their pasts, she’d reach out to hug me. I’m beyond thankful for everything she did for me during her time here. I’ll never forget it, for as long as I live.

It’s easy to feel alone. My passion makes me very “different” from others. A lot of people don’t understand me. A lot of people don’t want to hear about the things I do, because it’s too hard for them. Many people don’t see my “dog stuff” as important… or they consider it to be much less important than other things. I’d be lying if I said that doesn’t hurt sometimes.
But then, there are the people who are always there for me. Maybe they don’t care about dogs quite like I do, but they’re always there to support me. That’s such a special feeling… and I need more people like that in my life… I really do.

But she did all of these things out of the goodness in her heart… and I doubt she realizes the impact she had on me in her short time here. In truth, Michelle renewed my spirit… she really did. That’s the kind of gift you can’t repay… but here’s my attempt to do so…
PLEASE go to Michelle Sathe’s website, http://www.pitstopsbook.com/, and purchase a copy of “Pit Stops.” It’s an inspiring story that will make your heart soar. In addition, Michelle donates a portion of each sale toward a deserving rescue group like Lucky Dog Rescue. In doing this, she takes a lot money out of her own pocket and gives back to the animals. What an incredible act… by an incredible friend.
