I like 'muts'.. like me... We have had some good "AKA" recognized breeds, rarely.

Our current 2 are 'rescues'... a 'red' dog belongs to our son... dog almost like a Ridgeback.. but smaller and about 28 pounds. My wife's dog, we think is a Bichon Frise...

I have held several and each I held as they left this world... as we had to 'put them down'. My wife was the 'brave' one and stayed home as several pups and two cats and I took the last rides together.

At first, there is no hope....then we begin to realize those gone before ARE in a better place and I must have courage to let go of their spirits...after our own time of mourning... then continue on my own path and maybe find another soul who wants to share some of my life... and I realized I am BLESSED again... and in fact, always am... blessed. Be blessed..

Good find Maggie.

Actually, per the first post, it could be said that rescue dogs rescue us!

This pollen is year round. Some of the nicest people I've met had 4 legs. Pets can make a cold empty house a warm home. So humbling to see so many people open their doors, and give a animal a second chance. Definitely who saved who on rescues. Love the dog tease video.

How did I miss this thread?

Daisy rescued me 5 years ago.

Here she is doing what she loves in the trailer with her buddy Lammy:

Sorry to read of everyone's loss - such a testament to the love these sweet creatures bring to our lives.

And post #40 just had me in tears....the unconditional faithful love....the honor....so moving....

When people love on Lily, and ask me if she is a “rescue”, I respond that, no, she is a “foundling”...found at Chico State Park in Louisiana, in October 2010.

8-9 months old, and had been on her own there for several days before we arrived and took her in for care for the 3 nights we were there.

When no one was looking for her and Parish police had no knowledge of a lost dog, she went with us as we left, and has been the dearest, most loving companion imaginable.

I simply do not know what I would have done without her after my husband died. If I hadn’t already had her, I would have had to find her.

This is my sweet baby, sharing an early morning with me in the Interstate this past February...I, drinking my coffee with the bed still out, she waking up slowly.

And this is Lenny, my childless daughter and son-in-law’s adoptee earlier this year, in upper New York State.

A dear, sweet, dog, with a ton of personality, he has filled a void there that they didn’t realize they had.

There is a nurturing give-and-take with dogs that you simply don’t get with a cat.

He’s about 75lbs, now, at 8 months, and I think will be over 100lbs by the time he is grown.

Just love the undignified sprawl of a dog that is feeling safe, secure, and happily asleep...

Our 4 "brothers from different mothers" do that all the time, or cuddle close when it's a bit cold outside. Such contentment makes the world a nicer place.

Never have figured out the answer to, "Who rescued who?"

And, if you’ve never shared a real bond with a dog, you simply don’t understand...

Rescue is the way to go!!!! We've always had rescues. We just lost our 17 yr old doggie, and are looking for another fur baby, we are so sad for her loss. Saving another is the only way ...... and they will definitely save us

So sorry for your loss.

As Lily starts to grey a bit, and I am aware that she is aging, I canít bear the thought of losing her but already feel I will take in another.

Maggie
