Kaiser was abandoned along with his mother and siblings about a mile or so down the road from my parent's place in late October 2003. Everyone was adopted out, but Kaiser stayed. I thank God everyday for him. My life has never been the same and I know no greater love than for my son. It was a sad situation, but from that came such joy. They couldn't have been more than 6-8 weeks old at the time, skinny and dehydrated and crawling with fleas. But they were so sweet and affectionate and HAPPY despite their situation.
Duke showed up at my parent's cottage on July 19, 2005. He was scared of us at first, but once we gave him some food, he was our new best friend. He was a mess. Dirty and flea covered and skinny as broom. AND OBVIOUSLY ABUSED!!! My dad looked for his owners, but no one knew who he was or where he came from. I was actually happy because I don't think I would have wanted to give him back to people that obviously didn't care for him. We thought he was old, but the vet said he was only 2 or 3. We weren't going to keep him originally because we already had so many dogs, but he stole our hearts and became a member of the family. Now I can't imagine him not being around.
See my parents live out in the sticks and if you find a stray, 9/10 times, it was dumped off. The Animal Control Officer said he is constantly amazed how many dogs he finds on our road.
Well Duke has the life that other dogs can only dream of. Whatever his past was, his future is the complete opposite. We are going to spend the rest of his life making the first 2-3 years up to him.
