How We Met

How I met my adopted dog:
When I was working at a veterinary clinic in my hometown during the summer before I went to college, there was a little black puppy who had the potentially deadly disease called parvovirus. With weeks of treatment, he was lucky enough to survive and eventually make a full recovery. But there was one problem. His owners could not pay his bill, and actually never even attempted to pick him up again. We sent out the final letter to his former owners stating that he would "be disposed of as necessary". Meanwhile, I was taking him for long walks and giving him extra treats during his stay at the clinic. I found it very disturbing that this adorable young puppy was basically growing up in a small kennel, with very little socialization, attention, or exercise. I gradually taught him some manners and a few tricks, like shake paws, sit and come. After the summer came close to an end, I decided I could no longer take it. I had tried my best to find him a good home, but nobody came. At the end of July I took the puppy, named Deuce, home with me. He has been my best friend ever since and I could not ask for a better dog.

She certainly is an angel. I find when we rescue an animal they are so thankful they give us back tenfold all the love we give to them. Animals are Gods angels,and I pray all humans will make themselves worthy of the love they so freely share. May you and Angel have many more beautiful years together.
