Found wandering, this old boy was on borrowed
time at the local animal control shelter. He was blind, deaf,
arthritic, he had lumps and bumps and rotten teeth, but he also had
a gentle heart. When he discovered the joys of belly rubs he would
stop, drop, and roll over almost any time you touched him.
We were able to give him ten days of enjoying the creature
comforts of a real home…
These two sweethearts were
left at a local animal control shelter. They were clearly longtime
friends who loved each other. We have no way of knowing what
circumstances forced their owners to leave them, maybe it was the
tough economic times we are in, perhaps it was something else.
Whatever the reason, it certainly wasn’t the fault of these two good

O Bobby Ray, you are a heartbreaker. We found you in the
shelter, limping, filthy, and smiling. There was really no room
to bring you home, but we did anyway. We had to shampoo you
three times just to get you…not clean…but less dirty. That’s
when we found the scar that circled your neck, embedded collar?
Next day, the xray showed a broken leg. Damn. We debated and
discussed and cried. I am sorry we could only give you four
days, you deserved so much more.

In any effort to ease the last days of older or
mildly ill pit bulls that are going to be euthanized in local shelters,
we have developed a compassion program.
We offer them
respite in a home with all of the associated comforts, good food, a
soft bed, people who care about them…and then we let pass on in
loving arms. Admittedly this can be
challenging work, but also so incredibly rewarding.
