Dog Rescue Stories: Travis Stole Her Shoes…and then Her Heart!

Travis Featured

Travis was a dog without a home. He survived by scrabbling around for food on the beach in Greece. He found shelter from the heat under cars and drank sea water when he was thirsty.

Dominique was a human without a dog. Then, she went to Greece. Travis and Dominique met when he stole her shoes while she was swimming… and then he her stole her heart, too!  But then Travis got Parvo – a disease that kills 99% of Greek stray dogs. Travis almost died five times during the following week. Dominique sang to him every day during the mad dash to the veterinarian, and willed him to live!

Travis now lives in Holland with his forever mom,  where he is a ‘Pioneer in Joy’. There are gifts to be had from every day and during every season, and as a English Pointer mix, Travis points out these gifts, often literally! Always a dog with ideas above his station, Travis is determined to add joy and positivity to the world via his life lessons as a former street dog. His favorite things are his pink squeaky monkey, sofa time, and barbecue…especially steak!

When taking a well earned break now and then, Travis does his best to bring about world peace. Along with five other pups, he has started a love and peace quilt. Pups all over the world have been adding their squares to the quilt in a bid for harmony.  Add yours with the hashtag #lovequiltforpeaceTravis 4

FOR DOERAK Celebrating the memory of my little pal, who died one year ago. It’s tricky being positive about death, but these are lessons in joy, and a spiritual leader’s heart is epic. 19 is a grand old age, and warm and immortal in another when, Doerak and I will always be nuzzling on the sofa. Thanks for all the ear washes Doerak. Oh well, more steak for me! * For my lovely Doerak, who would be 20 were he still here, and for #pups4tatum All the best Tatum. I don’t know you, but we can all imagine how hard this must be. Wishing you all the joy in the world. My #upcloseandpersonal challenge and a #repostforareason Phew, thanks for reading.

… And now I live in Holland, land of clogs and tulips. The weather sucks, but the sausage is way more plentiful. And now that I no longer have to hunt for each scrap of food, I’m trying to pay the joy forward. Because right now, I’ve got a grin from ear to ear, and it’s time the world had one too. So come on, join me! Follow my lessons in joy. #positivelywoof #formerstray #greekdogs #greekdog #dogphilosophy #dogswoofyou #dogvinedaily #dogist #pointergram #pointermix #dogsamazingworld #bellfix #dogventurist #petfancy #happydog_feature #dogselfie #muttsofinstagram #instadogs #woofwoof #wiseolddog #prettypooch #dogpost #rescuedog #happydogs #dogsrule #dailydoseofcute #pioneerinjoy #hikingwithdogs #dogsarefamily #dutchdog
