This little peanut recently became an unexpected, but very welcome, addition to our family. At just around five or six weeks old, she was put out onto the street by someone in a pickup truck. Luckily, her guardian earth angel was in the car behind the truck and managed to save this lovely little soul. That beautiful earth angel, Kristine, a veterinarian assistant at our vet, thought of us after this sweet baby was checked out and looking for a home. It took me all of five seconds after meeting her to fall hopelessly in love.
I won't dwell on the anger and disgust I feel for the person who put her out on the road like that, nor will I try to figure out his motivation. Whatever the reason, it's wrong and it happens a lot. I implore everyone to fight for the innocents. Advocate for education about pet ownership and teach children as early as possible how to respect animals; promote spay and neuter programs; and lobby for zero tolerance of puppy mills and animal abusers. We may not be able to save them all, but together we can make a difference.
