My Heart....

Broke today. I went to get Tyra and Quincy groomed and decided to go do a snuggle fest at the pound. I watched them bring in this slow moving golden cross dog. I went up and cuddled this poor old soul and was shocked to feel every bone in his frail body. He was abandoned in the bush and was quite old. He was so weak it was with great difficulty that he walked. I bent down to look in to his eyes and he leaned into me and right into my heart. I looked at my husband and started to cry. Why the hell would someone do this to this baby? The handler said he is filthy and you will get dirty. So I did the only thing that I could do. I hugged him and told him that I loved him. Getting dirty was not my concern. He was. They were going to give him fluids and food and get him checked by the vet. I called there about 10 times to check on him. They are leaning towards sending him on to the bridge as they think this would be a blessing. I asked them to at least give him a night of comfort and compassion. I have sent food and a bed down for him. He haunts me..my heart is broken because I cannot save this one....:(

Thank you for caring for this old boy. :angel:
Where are you located? Any chance a rescue would take him? I have had a few old guys that were dumped at shelters and have been able to find them forever homes. I hope this guy gets a chance.

That's terrible. I cannot imagine what goes on in a person's mind that would abandon an old soul like this. You are an angel for caring, and showing him someone cares. :grouphug: Maybe all he needs is some food and loving care and he'll be okay.

I second that. I am sure that made him feel some love and that not all people are evil. You did a great thing so as bad as you feel you did right by him

Beauty went to the bridge this morning. He was just in such bad shape they could not save him. All his organs were failing and was having a terrible time just breathing. I named him Beauty and his ashes will be returned to me. In death, he will know love....:(

What a horrible story.

At least he knew someone cared. :grouphug: :grouphug:

How sad. I had hoped he would be saved.

At least he knew love and kindness for a few hours, and felt some comfort in his last moments.

:rip:Beauty.

I just read this now at work and am in tears too. Shay you did a wonderful thing to give Beauty a name and some last loving care. Having two seniors myself I just can't understand how someone could be so heartless. RIP Beauty. You will be remembered with love.

Beauty was returned to me today. I cried for a pup I only knew for a few minutes. Beauty will have company with Akeija and Sophie. He will go with me when my time comes. I hope, at the bridge he finds the love and care he so deserved. May soft blankets, warm sunshine and big bones bring him joy.:candle::rip::dog:

It doesn't matter how long you knew this beautiful soul. There are some lives that no matter how long we have known them, they stay with us forever.
