The story of Lucky Peluci, the dirty mop looking thing!
A few years ago I went to the pound to look at some dogs, in particular this dirty mop looking thing I came across on the pound laanimalservices website.
He was just a pile of hair and he had bangs covering his entire face. Clearly I could not see his eyes, fact that really bugged me. So next thing I know I’m driving downtown L.A looking for the rascal. Absolutely no intention of adopting one as I had just said good-by to my business and was literally broke.
To put it lightly, I was going through a rough patch; I was working my heart out, seven days of the week only nobody was paying me. Lesson learned and I hope you take notes kids: if you are willing to work for free people will let you and somehow turn it around as if they did you a favor.
Not to worry though; I’ve been taking my Omega 3s and my brain has since then gotten a nice tune up! Moral of the story: feed your brains and nobody can fool ya 😉
Back at the dog pound I show the front desk lady the photo I printed from their website and that I needed to see that dog.
She grabs the paper, doesn’t talk to much, types something in the computer and informs me that the dirty mop looking thing is in quarantine, he is basically evil because he’s been biting his owner and I simply can not see him. He was returned 3 times and he will be put to sleep.
Damn lady! Are you serious ?!
By now you know I really want to see this wild thing! As a matter of fact I actually have exactly $250 left in my bank account that I got from catering a small event, so yeah I got this!
Off I go, walking towards the quarantine area, where everything, all cages are locked up between heavy glass doors. I run into a big guy, a volunteer who listens to my story and takes it upon himself to do some investigating.
Turns our Front Desk Lady was just mad!
The dirty mop looking thing didn’t bite his owner, he was actually found stuck under the exhaust of a car and only bit the rescue person when he snatched him from under there. That’s totally normal if you are a canine btw. Duhh ! What was wrong with this lady ? She had the dirty mop on death row, locked up in quarantine next to dozens of pit bulls!
Now she was getting me upset, but I couldn’t have that because in all honesty I was doing some kind of deep soul-searching, and that’s really the reason I ended up at the dog pound that day. So I decided to let that one go and had that nice volunteer man do something illegal; bring the mop looking thing with no eyes out in the grass area so I could check it out.
I knelt down on the grass next to other humans looking for a friend or whatever, and immediately the dirty mop backs up between my legs with his back against me and looks up. Only then did his dirty bangs fall back and I could see his round sparkly marble eyes.
Oh man, it was like lightning struck me! It’s like I knew this guy, like he was my long-lost child or something… really weird experience.
As I mentioned above, I was doing some kind of deep soul-searching that day, so perfect example: you find what you are looking for !
At this point I was ready to sign away a kidney if that’s what it took to take the dirty mop looking thing with marble eyes out of there.
Luckily that was not necessary because as you can probably recall, I had $250 in my bank account ! I was balling, and we were both gonna get out of this place. Granted, we might end up living under a palm tree or some bridge in Santa Barbara, but the way I saw it: we would be together the mop and I, and everything else was irrelevant.
Don’t laugh even if it sounds funny to you because that almost happened. Then again, we would have been together, the mop and I, and everything would have eventually fallen into place as it actually did and we lived happily ever after.
” Dirty mop looking thing ” was just not gonna cut it anymore, not after I saw those marble eyes staring straight into my soul and felt his heart beat next to mine. He also cleaned up all right !
This was clearly the one and only ” Lucky Peluci “ and that little rascal was gonna live up to his new name like forget about it!
