Arrival Story: We're originally from NJ - bought an old farm in NC and were commuting back and forth to oversee the renovations. I noticed a pile of rags in the corner of the barn on one trip and when I went to check it out, it was 3 puppies (Tucker and 2 sibs). Tucker immediately came to see me, the others stayed in the corner. We found homes for them, and Tucker moved in with us.
Mommy was sad yesterday. She had to make the decision to help one of our older rescues cross the Bridge. Aquilla was abandoned at the shelter by her people 2 months ago. She was almost 12 years old and had bad arthritis in her back legs. Mommy couldn't let her stay there, so she brought her home. She found out that Aquilla also had a tumor in her stomach, and she knew that her time with us would be short. She liked being outside, and Mommy would allow her to roam free. All of the other rescue pups respected her and yesterday, they all went to visit her. She got really bad this weekend, the tumor seemed to double in size and she couldn't get up to go outside. Mommy helped her go sit in the sun, and with Miss Lisa's help, the dogter came and helped her cross the Bridge. We'll miss you, Aquilla - run free, sweet angel. We'll see you again.
I was grumpy this morning and didn't want to wake up until Mommy told me that I was Dog of the Day today!!! I can't wait to tell everyone else - they'd better listen to me and do what I say --- today's MY DAY!!
