“Wag” Side Inn wishes the best to our dear friend, employee, and groomer, Corrinne Spaulding. She is leaving us after 12 plus years. Corrinne is off on her life adventure of pursuing human, equine, and canine massage combined with Reiki and a holistic view to help both 2 and 4 footed creatures that cross her path. We send her with our best wishes and prayers for a bright and prosperous future. All of the four footed furry friends and 2 footed non furry friends will miss her! If you see her please wish her luck. Corrinne is pictured above on the right with her Puggle named Payton.
At this time “Wag” Side Inn would like to introduce you to Jessie Darrow our new employee and groomer. She will be taking over grooming for Corrinne. Jessie has worked in two different animal shelters including the Cortland Community SPCA. Sled dog racing has been a very large part of Jessie life growing up and now in her adult life. She and her family have been quite successful over the years competing all over including the Tug Hill Plateau races. “Wag” Side Inn would like to welcome Jessie Darrow to our team!
I RESCUED A HUMAN
Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels.
I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her.
I wagged my tail, not too exhuberantly, so she wouldn’t be afraid.
As she stopped at my kennel, I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage.
I didn’t want her to know that I hadn’t been walked today.
Sometimes the overworked shelter keepers get too busy and I didn’t want her to think poorly of them.
As she read my kennel card, I hoped that she wouldn’t feel sad about my past.
I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone’s life.
She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me.
I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her.
Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship.
A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well.
Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms.
I would promise to keep her safe.
I would promise to always be by her side.
I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes.
I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor.
So many more are out there who haven’t walked the corridors.
So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.
I rescued a human today.
