Arrival Story: In 2006 I found out I had Small Cell Ovarian Cancer and was having a hard time with the treatment. My fiance' and I decided that we should get a puppy to love, give us love and keep our minds focused on the happiness he brings us. We went to our local animal shelter and there he was. His sister and him were found on the side of the road and were to young to be adopted out at that time. After a while in foster care they were old enough to find good homes. The same day they were brought to the shelter was the day we adopted Sam and his sister was adopted also. I credit him for my tolerance to the chemo and radiation; he brought me hope and gave me a reason to get out of the house and enjoy the life I have. I couldn't imagine happiness without him
