15 Year Old
I want to
tell you a story about about love and dedication. A story of an old thrown away
dog, and one of our precious volunteers.
Blondie was alone and shivering in a shelter
in Pa. One of our volunteers, Mary at firstname.lastname@example.org, went to see, what she
had been told, was a 10 year old Bichon Mix of some sort. When she got there,
she saw this poor 15 year old girl, with mammory tumors.
This is how the
conversation went.., between Mary, and Carol, our volunteer executive assitant.
You are going to love this..:))
It's been a long tough day for me; I
drove almost four hours to the shelter and back to get the saddest-looking, most
pitiful animal I ever saw.
When I called the vet for an appt, she asked me
what breed it was and I said, "I think she used to be a
Blondie is fifteen, going bald, leaks and hasn't stopped
tail since she came inside. She likes everybody, dogs, cats,
Blondie looks so grateful to be here I could cry. Andy (my pmr Bichon)
keeps challenging her and she just wags. She leaks and he marks!! He hasn't done
that for months and now no vertical surface is safe.
I'm exhausted. Pictures
Carol writes "I thought
was only 10,
yikes, do you think she is placable??"
Mary Writes "Hell no! I realized when I saw her that nobody
would take her and if I walked away from her she would die even though she seems very healthy
gave her the biscuit I brought her, she looked in my face and licked
The other furries seem to have
accepted her already so I'll take care of her until God volunteers.
Do we have great
people, or what? I was so touched by Mary doing this....of course we will take
Blondie to the vet and see what we can do for her to make her comfortable....but
Mary will love her, and take care of her..until, as she says, God volunteers.
Bless you Mary Dowling..God Bless you...
