Hi I'm Lisa and this is my husband Steve... Let me tell you a story of the most Amazing creature, his name is BIG FOOT. On Valentines day, February 14th, 2008... I started my new job at ProTech Security, a Security Guard service company, located in Oakland Ca. On Broadway Street located btwn. 19th and 20th.
Commuting from San Francisco to Oakland on Bart, walking toward my new job, I passed by a scooter shop. There was a load noise of a huge dog pouncing against the glass door, followed by a ferocious bark. I was overcome with reverence and respect. The great beauty, sublimity and might of this amazing creature.
Later on that day I met the owner of the scooter shop and asked if he could introduce me to his watch dog. Big Foot was very friendly and loving. We became good friends.. No we became BEST FRIENDS.
Soon when I passed by in the mornings the bark was no longer ferocious but more friendly bark, as if to say good morning. BIG FOOT became the neighborhood Mascot. He posted up in front of the store unleashed and never would hurt a flea. He has a special place in his heart for Children and Disabled people. Anyone in a wheel chair was greeted by BIG FOOT and was instantly in love as I was.
Every night, when I got off work, BIG FOOT saw me and walked me to Bart. He watched till I walked to the bottom of the last stair, till he couldn't see me anymore. Now when I come Home at Night He and Courtney watches me come up the stairs and Greets me With Love and Compassion!!
Rob has recently closed the scooter shop and has opened a new trendy place called "The Shadow Lounge". Rob approached me and felt it was time for BIG FOOT to spend his retired years in a home with a big yard! Thank you Robert for sharing your wonderful dog with everyone in Oakland!! Thank you for all your Love & Care... He has touched our lives over & over again.
So BIG FOOT has moved in with me and you can't imagine the LOVE and All the NEW Friends he is making.
BIG FOOT has received his Doggie SHOTS and
But now the big fella needs leg surgery, like older Rottweilers often do. It's a high price, and so i am asking people on the block to chip in for a dog they all are fond of. I am making progress but need more.
Saturday he enjoyed getting a bath in his San Francisco Home with warm water and lots of love & bubbles. He gets along with all other animals... My other doggies Courtney, Chopper & Bear.
Sunday night BIG FOOT suddenly took a turn for the worse. He had a hard time standing on his own and was admitted to VCA San Francisco Veterinary Specialists- Located at 600 Alabama Street in San Francisco. They are running a series of test and when he is ready he will be having knee surgery. Needless to saw I need help with the Vet Bills I want to save this amazing dog and bring him to the beach where he can feel the sand in between his paws. Thank you for your love & donations!
Steve, Lisa & Most of all... BIG FOOT!!
