was not rescued by DDTRL, but his story is
so touching we felt we had to share it with
I would l like to tell you a story.
It was Monday,
June15, 2009, around 8:00 PM.
Larry and Nancy just returned
home from a friend's wedding and they were
sitting on their front porch.
happened to be walking by their house around
that time, all
by myself, when I heard Larry
say “Hey”. Well I stopped and looked at
them and Larry called me over, looked at my
collar, and there was no tag. It seems that
I was a stray and no one knew where I lived,
Just a few
houses up the street live Fred and Ann. Fred
is a veterinarian. Well Ann told Larry and
Nancy to bring me over to their house and
they would find me a crate for the evening
and make sure that Animal Control picked me
up in the morning and take me to the animal
Little did I
know that Larry and Nancy, who by the way
are very kind and wonderful folks, had taken
a liking to me. They were considering
adopting me if my owner, whoever that was,
didn’t come to claim me.
Nancy called the shelter and were told that
they had to wait 4 days in order to adopt
I guess that
they were very impatient, because they came
into see me twice during those 4 days.
I am so glad
that I found them. It must have been meant
to be, because it’s now Saturday, June 27,
2009 and I have been living with Larry and
Nancy for 6 days. What can I say, I am
s-o-o-o happy and so are they. Did I mention
that they are very kind and wonderful folks?
I am about 1
year old and weigh only 16 pounds and
fortunately for Larry and Nancy, I am also
