Dizzying Intellect » Goodnight, sweet Fairy

Goodnight, sweet Fairy

I called her Fairy, because I’ve never liked the name Fay. The first time I saw her — on my second day there — and realized what had happened to her, I sat on the floor and sobbed for about 45 seconds, before I pulled my shit together, and she happily licked my hands while I cried.

Everyone always felt so sorry for her, but she was a rock star. She had no idea that she was disfigured, and she never seemed to be in any pain. She just knew that everyone gave her kisses and peanut butter and loved her. If you sat on the floor in front of her, she’d keep licking your face until the sun cooled, given the opportunity. They called her Smiley Cyrus.

No matter which section I worked in, I always went to say good morning and good night to my Fairy, and steal my kisses. Brave little girl. I was looking forward to the day I’d see her at a fundraiser and get to hold her on my lap and hug her again.

Good night, Fay. Rest well. I hope I’m wrong, and I see you and many of your fellow former fighters again. It was an honor to know you.

Love,
Aunt Tanya

    That is sad. Too bad the HSUS is such an anti-gun organization, or I would donate.

    I don’t care what the HSUS beliefs are, because I don’t donate to them. They have no animals, no shelters, and are basically just planners and policy-makers.

    You should focus on your local offices, where the dogs and cats (and in the case of HSMO, horses and pigs and chickens and geese) are. They’re unrelated and financially unsupported by HSUS.
