On Sunday, Aug. 5, I read with great interest in the Watertown Daily Times Sunday Weekly section the heartwarming story entitled, A dog has his day (s), The road which leads to a rescue can have many heroes along the way.
The story told of an abandoned dog that had been living under dire conditions when rescued and had little hold of a second chance at a future with his medical conditions where there would not be a full recovery. But his special story has a happy ending. Finally, after all the rescue efforts of many to save the life of this breed of dog a reporter with the Los Angeles Times named Rene Lynch has since adopted him and has given him a forever home
I felt the need to write and give reference to this story because I feel that I am connected to it. I adopted my sweetheart of a cat when she was 7 months old from an animal shelter. She was born at the shelter, and her mother was pregnant with her when she was abandoned on a cold, dark, rainy night and was rescued by the shelter workers. Shortly after my young kitten came to live with me she came down with a bad cold. I took her to the vet and had her treated with medicine which helped her get better.
It has now been 10 years since then, and this past winter she had to go on medication for the rest of her life because she has developed an upper respiratory condition. But with me my sweet loving cat has a forever home, and Ill do all I can for her to live out the rest of her days. I could never ask for a more good-natured furry ball of fur, and the love I get from her in return is precious.
