Since it is Heart Day week, I thought it would be appropriate to share how love not only changed one little dog’s life for our fur girl, Victory, but our lives have changed, too. Shown in the image below, you can see the distinct physical differences that Victory has undergone in a little over three years. The image on the left is the image that was sent to us from the rescue’s foster mom (who cared for Victory) just prior to us meeting Victory and taking her home after traveling to Michigan. The image on the right was taken this past Valentine’s Day, earlier this week! Victory has come into her own and she has a beautiful fur coat. (We were not sure if she would have a thick fur coat come in when we initially met her). To name a few other changes — she has more confidence; she explores her surroundings more; and she enjoys play time. We once thought we could never love another sheltie as much as our Biscuit, but we found love again with our Victory, an integral family member who is included in our activities as much as possible, including our vacations! Victory is also extremely loyal through the inevitable myriad of twists and turns in life. Most of all, Doug and I are the beneficiaries of unconditional love from Victory, for which we are forever grateful.
Spring is around the corner, and it could be a perfect time to consider rescuing and adopting a furry companion, if that is at all on your radar. We highly recommend it. Your life will forever positively be changed by helping an animal who really needs love and care. Love can change everything.
