A Dog’s Journey Home (E8) – From Hurt To Hope To Happiness
There is nothing like a Tracy'sDogs "Gotcha Day". A truck filled with rescued and rehabilitated dogs travels from San Antonio, Texas to cities across the country for the emotional first meeting with their new families. In this episode of A Dog's Journey Home, we are with Scott and Tracy in Darien, Illinois, where 45 dogs are about to have the greatest moment in their lives.
There is a lot of pent up tension when the truck door swings open and Scott takes a few minutes to address the gathering of anxious families to prepare them for their big moment. "Has anyone ever traveled across the country with small kids for two and a half days?" he asks with a smile. "I have 45 kids on that trailer and they've been in there for two and half days. They will be ready to go."
Here are a few of the dogs you will see as they finally meet their new forever families:
Shasta – A Shephard mix with a sweet disposition
Edgar – A white dog with short legs and a long body who is finally going home after a long stay at the rescue
Smidge – A short haired pooch with a nubby tail who grew up from a pup at the rescue
Bristol – Fostered with Tracy when she was very sick and now going to a home with 2 other adopted dogs
Tracy has a way of perfectly capturing the emotion of the day and its connection to everything she does to save dogs. "It is such a good feeling to be able to take that dog, look into their face, and know that you will find them a good home," she says. "Over a 30 day period you can look at a dog's face and see it go from hurt, pain and no hope to smiling and happy. It's hard to put into words."
It's hard, Tracy, but you just did it beautifully. Many thanks to you and the Tracy'sDogs team for all that you do.
