“Man is a dog’s idea of what God
should be.”--Holbrook Jackson.

A couple
in California
left

their 13 year old
dachshund
tied to a post
outside
a pet shelter.

“He needs care.
We are seniors,
sick & broke;
have no choice--
please put him
to sleep.”

Leave No Paws Behind
stepped in,
provided Vet-aid,
then re-united
Otto
with his
owners--

a happy ending,
for once.

indeed, a good story. I like how they're even taking over the cost of food and vet bills for the couple, dubbing them 'long term foster parents'. ~

What a story of sunshine.. I can just imagine the pain in leaving the dog... and the joy getting him back... for many retired an old like dog that sometimes will follow them to their grave.

Glenn, what a wonderful story. Makes me feel good this Saturday morning. Nice that there are such angels out there that care about things like elderly people and their dogs!
