OK. Y’all get ready. ‘Cause today I’m sharing a little story with you. It’s sad, but it has a happy ending. And, it’s a reminder about something very important.
So, get comfortable and start reading. Here We go:
Hey Stuart, Thought I would send you a pee mail about my new little Scottie named Jessie. I adopted him on Oct 27. Drove to Savannah, Ga. to get him, just sick over what happened in his young life!
Jessie is a 3 yr. old male black Scottie who lost his home due to a terrible fire. His peeps and a cat buddy didn’t survive. He was outside and a firefighter or policeman grabbed him as he tried to run inside the house.
He was handed over to a neighbor who wanted to take him in, but he tried to bite the man’s children, since he doesn’t get along with kids. So he ended up at an animal shelter and I was alerted about him.
My home is perfect. There are no kids, as my kiddos are grown ups. His peeps were older adults with no kids. Anyway he’s been here with us (Me and his new Dad ) for almost 2 weeks. We love him soooo much!!!!
He is still afraid of loud noises (fire trucks, police car sirens and anything that goes boom), the propane tanks exploded behind his home during the fire! I take him on walks around our neighborhood and try to make him feel as comfortable and loved as possible. Hopefully with love, patience and a lot of dog treats will help that terrible time become a distant memory for him. I’m happy to share my life with him!!!
Please tell everyone you know and their peeps to install smoke alarms in their homes if they don’t have them. It saves lives!!
