Ani’s Advent 2020! Rex the Hero and Jennie Fitzkee.

Dear Santa,

Sometimes, you have to wonder at people… I mean, last time Rex told us one of his stories, he just told us about the things he sort of got in trouble for. It turns out, though, that he’s pretty much a hero and never mentioned it…

Mind you, there are lots of people who are real heroes and never say a word. The quiet ones who look out for everyone else… the ones who work behind the scenes who no-one notices… the ones who never blow their own trumpet and don’t even think they are remarkable in any way.

And many of them have been especially busy this year, looking after the people this horrible bug has kept indoors and made lonely. If there is room in your sack for a bit extra this years, Santa… maybe you could sprinkle a bit of magic for them…

    Reblogged this on A Teacher's Reflections and commented:
    Yes, the quiet heroes are the ones who deserve a bit of magic this year.
    Rex was my childhood dog, and he was a hero. We were born on the same day! Many of my Jennie Stories at school are about Rex. Did I tell you he taught me how to walk? Thank you Sue for sharing Rex’s story with Ani.

  2. Rex must have been a very special dog to perform such a heroic rescue. And of course teaching you how to walk.

    Yes, he was. We have always had labs since Rex. Rex also brought my mother and stepfather (the most wonderful man) together. When my father was killed in a car crash on the way to duck hunting, Rex survived, but he was injured. My mother had four children, so tending to Rex was not something she could do. Jim Ford to the rescue. He took that dog out to the water help him heal. He must have helped heal my mother, too (even though she was the rock of Gibraltar), as they were married soon thereafter. See, dogs can be angels, too.
