Pet of the Week: Teddy and Angel

Our talker Angel

Our dog Teddy the picture on the [right] was pet of the week last year in October and it brought tears to my eyes.  Teddy passed away 3 years this December before Christmas. Teddy was a pet rescue at four months old we adopted Teddy and enjoyed the years we had with him.  Teddy is sadly missed.

Later we adopted Angel the picture [above] from Dog Deserve a Second Chance.  When we brought Angel home at 7 weeks old I brought him to the Vet to make sure everything was alright with his health.  Angel had two parasites that would have killed him if left untreated.  Vet put Angel on medicine and Angel is now 2 years old and quite a talker.  I dread to think if we had not adopted Angel he would not be here today.  Angel makes me smile and has helped me deal with the lost of our dog Teddy.

Please remember the dogs who need homes that will eventually be very ill or be put to sleep that no one wants.  They are important too.

Thanks, Madeline for introducing us to Angel! Teddy will always be remembered but I’m glad that Angel was rescued into a loving home!

    Thank You for sharing your story and for letting people know its okay to grieve the loss of a pet and still have room in your heart to help another animal that needs you. This is what is going on in my life, I recently lost my 4 year old put to Addisons. Then Wrinkles was brought into my life and he needed us as much as needed and I do believe he was sent to us. He will never replace Tanner, hes his own dog, with his own personality and we have been truly blessed for finding each other. What a perfect christmas gift to our family. The Reddens

      It is nice to know that I can help people who have lost their beloved pet but will never be forgotton.

      Teddy will always be in my heart but Angel has made room in my heart which I believe Angel was sent to me for a reason to help me smile again and it is okay to love another pet.
