A day I gave thanks!
We got him back in 2007! We adopted through the SafeHaven. I remember the first time I saw him. He was so ugly. Long long hair, a beard, missing teeth. I felt the urge to rescue this dog. We took him to the free vet exam they give you after three days of having him. The vet guessed he was approx 8yrs old. She said he was going blind and would require eye drops! She said you don't want this dog! I will help you return him. By than I was in love! We kept him and he has been the best dog we have ever had. We felt that even if it was for a short time we would give him a good home. Well that was 2007. He is still with us. However more blind and now deaf. Last night we had a scare and couldn't wake him, his heart rate was low and I started crying figuring this was the end. A real eye opener as to never take anything for granted. He has no pain just old and sleeps all of the time. Eats, pees and that is pretty much it. Prefers to really be left alone. After praying for him and stirring him he came around. We just don't know how much longer we will have him. Today I count my blessings! Have a great week! Blessings Pam
