What a fantastic video-I'm glad I had the box of tissues nearby because Peety died of the same thing our Kayla did. How wonderful that they rescued each other-and that he went back to the shelter and found Jake. So many people go to shelters looking for puppies and walk by the older dogs. If we ever adopt a dog again, it will definitely be an older one.Thanks so much for sharing this uplifting story, Linda.
Love stuff like this!
This was such an amazing video. Thank you. Carol, I am sorry about the loss of your Kayla. Older dogs need so much love, and they are the best. Eric looks so different and so healthy. I know my dog is a bit overweight, and I try to get him to take the long walks we used to, but he has such trouble with his legs and hips from arthritis now he doesn't want to walk as much. Eric was blessed to have found Peety and I was so sad when he died. Jake will never replace him, but will have a special place with Eric forever. Thanks again for a wonderful post.
Glad you enjoyed it!
I'm in tears watching this. What an inspirering story. I know so well how our fur babies help us. When my Mom lost her Chip she lost the will to go on.
You know why I started the blog, I was so depressed after Rip died. It was horrible. I can understand how your Mom felt.
Great story. They say black dogs are mostly overlooked at shelters, so this one has an especially happy ending. Thanks.
I don't understand why people are so afraid of black dogs. All the reason not to adopt a black dog are insane- from superstitions to not being photogenic.Jake won the lottery the day Eric gave him his forever home.
