Honoring Biscuit: Remembering His Fluffy Fur Coat
“What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.” ~Helen Keller
Today marks six months since our precious Biscuit passed away. Anyone who met Biscuit or saw photographs of Biscuit knew that Biscuit had a beautiful and fluffy fur coat, as shown below. Biscuit went through a magical transformation both physically and emotionally from the time when we first met Biscuit. Biscuit literally blossomed. Biscuit was a trooper and he let me give him a bath with no issue. Most of the time, Biscuit was pretty cooperative with me brushing out his fur coat to keep him looking his best in exchange for some prescription kibble! Biscuit did not particularly like going to the groomer, but he tolerated it in order to get his nails and paws trimmed.
Most of all, Biscuit’s beautiful fur coat is evidence that humans can have a huge positive impact in dogs’ lives. We hope that Biscuit’s rescue story helps influence others to consider dog rescue. There are so many dogs in need of furever homes. When it comes to Biscuit, I am not sure who rescued who. Biscuit was a gift. Doug and I still think of Biscuit daily and we are very grateful for our time together. We know that Biscuit sent us a gift — our little Victory!
