We had an emergency last night, having to take one of our dogs in to the vet clinic. Thankfully, she’s going to be okay. (Yes, that’s our Pearl cooling down in her kiddy pool.)
Meet Pearl. She didn’t have an ideal beginning to her life. You know those fairy tales we read to our children about how life hands you lemons but ends up happily ever-after? Well Pearl is a poster child for that kind of fairy tale. I’m so glad she ended up at our home. With all her problems most people would have had her euthanized long ago, or worse — she could have been mistreated by those who didn’t understand her issues or perhaps also tossed around from foster home to foster home. I admire every one of you out there who adopts a dog from a rescue organization or animal shelter. Thank you for being kind to them. Enjoy your weekend with your loyal four-legged friend.
Remember what Tom T. Hall said in his famous song about watermellon wine: “Old dogs they care about you, even when you make mistakes…”
After your watermelon wine weekend, tell me how your dog (or any pet) enriches your days.
