So sorry I’m late! All I can say is I have the ISP from another planet. Haven’t even checked email in several days.
I’ve decided to finish with the same theme ~ dogs. The Miracle of Blue ~ the pitbull puppy found with his muzzle taped in the mountains of Maine. In October 2015 he was seen running in the area of the Sunday River Ski Resort and picked up by the animal control officer. She took him to Bethel Animal Hospital which is one of the phenomenal veterinary practices involved in my German Shepherd’s health care. This story touched me in so many ways. The sadistic subhuman that abused and left a 5-6 month old puppy to die, the fear the puppy must have felt with his mouth tightly taped shut, and his astonishing recovery. From the moment he was rescued by the ACO, he gave nothing but love and kisses to everyone involved in his road to recovery. Amazing tale of survival and unconditional love and I think this quote sums up the essence of Blue…
“Dogs, for a reason that can only be described as divine, have the ability to forgive, let go of the past, and live each day joyously. It’s something the rest of us strive for.” ~ Jennifer Skiff, The Divinity of Dogs: True Stories of Miracles Inspired by Man’s Best Friend
