Tell me the saddest story you know; preferably doggie or pet related...).
The saddest story I know of would be anytime I hear about a shelter dog being put to sleep with that sad look of defeat on their faces...it gets me to me. Even more so when the dog has had a horrible life and never knew kindness.
Also, tell me the saddest experience YOU have been through with regard to your pets....).
This would be when I had to put our 9 yr old foster failure to sleep a month and a half after adopting her. She stopped eating one day so I took her in thinking I was going to need to change her meds, only for the doctor to tell me she had Hemangiosarcoma and there was nothing to do but let her go. I balled my eyes out.
Then tell me the happiest story you know...again, preferably doggie or pet related.
I always enjoy hearing the reunion stories of MWD's and their handlers...such a special bond that happens...those videos always bring tears of joy.
Another one is the story of Rogue, the German Shepherd who was saved by a man at the last minute. He was told he's unadoptable. This dog is the most loving, sweetest goob. He's overcome health issues and has brought people from all over the world together.
Finally, tell me the happiest experience you have had with your pets. Preferably a specific and detailed story (or accomplishment) and not something too general (like they make me happy).
This would have to be the joy I see in the faces of my two rescues. One I still have and the other was our senior who passed away. Each day, Red my male is so grateful. I love all my dogs, but there is something special with him...he is my heart dog : )When I first got him, he was scared, untrusting, unhealthy, and miserable. In the two years I've had him, he's found a new zest for life. He is my reason for falling in love with the German Shepherd breed. Also my reason for fostering others.
I love this thread...thanks for starting it up!
