I’m sorry to say that our little dog Happy will be put to sleep today Happy came to us as a rescue from a puppy mill – something that I cannot possibly speak out strongly enough against as a cruel, senseless, inhumane and inhuman concept. She came to us as an old doggy, with a huge list of health problems, culminating in the kidney failure that was diagnosed today.
We gave her what I believe was the happiest year of her life. We brought back her bark, her sense of mischief, her ability to play and to love and to trust. Happy was proof of the transformative power of love and the rewarding, if tragic, experience of rescuing an older, or sick animal. We had you for just over a year, Happy. We loved you for all you were worth. We renamed you ‘Happy at Last’. Go in peace, sweet baby.
