There are some decent people in the world.

"Wow what a day today has been I was on the way leaving Huntsville and had to stop to pick up some shots. I ran through Walmart parking lot and I saw a homeless man sitting on the side of the road and the sign says 'my dog is in the pound help'

Of course what do I do, I've seen every sign in the world except that one. I've seen 'I need a beer, lost my job, need help.' I could go on forever but never this sign so I tried to pull to the side and of course everybody's pissed off because I'm blocking them and I asked him what his deal was. I gave him my card I asked him how much it was to get his dog out of the pound; he said $120 well I had $8 to my name.

I told him I'd see what I could do. At first I called the pound to verify the man's story was true and they said yes it was $120. I asked him why so much the pound said because $35 was for an impoundment fee; then they gave it rabies shots, got a heartworm test and yes the dog was negative and put a flea prevention and they said yes the dog was in good shape so now when I don't have a dime to my name I call a dear friend and sponsor money and I tell her about this guy. She says well go back and find out his story so I did; 30 years old and his name is Patrick.

I talked to him for a few minutes and he told me his circumstances and stuff and I told him well I'm getting the money to get your dog out so let's go down to the pound. Me and Patrick go down to the pound, they give them all his paperwork and they did get a copy of the rabies. Fred Frederick is the dog's name he was shaking when he came out of the pound, he was so happy. Happy to see the man so sometimes you just have to dig deeper and do what's right in your heart. That man loves that dog. On his backpack was the dog's bowl and toys. He's helping the dog against the world, the man was very very grateful he had tears in his eyes when the dog came out.

We've all been in a bad situation in our life so remember always pay it forward you never know who that person might be that you help but I know for a fact that man loves his dog and he tried to give me the money he had collected.

I wouldn't accept it because maybe he can have some dinner tonight. He said his dog eats before he does. Wow that sounds like me too, I wish I had the money to get the man a room for a week and let him regroup him and Frederick but unfortunately I don't. All I can do is give him his dog and pray that life gives the man a break. I cried after the man in Frederick left. I dropped them back off in the Walmart parking lot in Huntsville, Texas. God please bless Patrick in Frederick tonight."
