Two years ago...............still makes me want to cry......

Like our friends Martha & Bailey the basset hounds we were also rescue dogs, Abigail (Jack Russell terrier) in April 2006 abandoned & with a rib that protrudes that the vet said was most likely from being kicked. Shadow (Dachshund) in August 2006 from the SPCA abandoned with puppies by her owners when they moved homes. This is what we looked like on our respective first days home: so thin and sad. How truly blessed we are two years on we are happy healthy little girls that get so much love and attention and give so much in return!
Girls it breaks my heart when people are cruel to animals and I am so grateful that the two of you came into our lives and joined our family! Abby chewed through a fence into our garden and into our hearts. Shadow was in her cage at the SPCA and when T sat down on the floor she put her paws on his shoulders and licked his face..........he said "this is the one mom" both chose us and we are honoured! How could anyone be so cruel to two such beautiful loving dogs?
Thank you for choosing us to be your family and for all the joy that you give us!!

I have never understood how people can be cruel to animals either but then look what they can do to each other!
I am glad your girls have you just as I am pleased our two have us now.
They still have issues left over from their earlier experiences.
Martha, in particular, has taken a lot of time as she had never lived in a house and has missed out so much on normal life.
I try not to think too much about their past lives as it breaks my heart too.
Thank goodness for happy futures!!
