In Response to RE: A gift from the heart... by PattyDiane
I hadn't been "dogless" since the early months of my first marriage in 1957. Then several years ago my 19 year old Chihuahua died and for some reason I can't fathom now I vowed not to get another animal. I think at the time I felt that my heart had been broken too many times when they pass on.
Three months later I took in a Chihuahua who needed a home when my sister-in-law called to tell me about Teddi. I couldn't resist. Within a week Buddy - a black & tan mixed breed - arrived starving at my door and that was all she wrote. For a long time I had the two dogs but then a couple years ago Luke (a black and white pointer) arrived in the same condition. People just dump unwanted dogs.
So for the next year I had three dogs LOL. My little Teddi died from complications of canine epilepsy at only 8 years old so I was back to two. And I'm still with those two today and they give me reason to get up every day and not sit on my butt all the time. I look on them all as gifts from God - He knew me better than I knew myself .
