They call me Austin.

Today I weighed in at 15 pounds. Both my humans looked a little shocked. And yet smile when they talked. I came home weighing five pounds.

But first I want to tell you what I thought when I first saw them. I was safe and warm in my Greenville Pet Shelter. And everyday was the same. Love and food, but this day was different. I didn't see them right a way but when a little finger came through the gate of my kennel, I lifted my eyes and saw a sad face.

She looked at me and I knew I could help her. I had lots of love to give. She ventured on down the line and then he looked at me. It was a strong connection and I knew I was his. So did he. When she came back, she smiled and said something. The kennel was opened and I was placed, at five pounds and less then three months, in his arms.

At that moment, I knew he was gentle and kind. He hugged me gently, even though he was a large human. And he whispered, you are going home, and she will love you. They walked down the hallway and to the main entrance. I got my new red collar and a new bedroom.

I am now three months old and worldly. I have learned so much and know what he meant by home.

Truly yours
