A Happy ending for Angel!!

Angel loves to swim!



 I adopted Angel from Wag On Inn Rescue (Oakhurst, NJ) on August 25, 2010. She was a Save a Sato rescue who had been taken in when she was only a few weeks old, weighing only 5 pounds. I just wanted to thank you for saving this little "Angel" and for getting here here to the states where she could join our family. 
 
Buster (my 4 year old English Springer Spaniel) and I were at our local dog park when this adorable little black beauty came right up to me - out of all the people in the park - and gave me a big hug and kiss. I asked the woman if this little angel (not even knowing yet that her name really WAS Angel) was a lab. She replied "she's actually a Sato". It was the first time I'd ever heard the word. She explained to me all about Save a Sato, Wag on Inn Rescues involvement and how she was fostering Angel and her sister Holly until they could find "furrr-ever" homes. I went home that very night and filled out an application to adopt Angel and a few weeks later we welcomed her into our home and our hearts. She was and continues to be the most adorable, gentle, sweetest little girl. I can't imagine my life without her! Thank you for completing our family.
 
Sincerely,
Molly McMahon

Belker, an inspiring email we want to share....


 
 
 
Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle. I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer.
 
I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.
 
As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure as they felt that Shane might learn something from the experience.
 
The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker's family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.
 
The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives.
 
Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, "I know why."
 
Startled, we all turned to him.
 
What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation. It has changed the way I try and live.
 
He said, "People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?"
The Six-year-old continued, "Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long."

Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:
  • When loved ones come home, always run to greet them;
  • Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride;
  • Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy;
  • Take naps;
  • Stretch before rising;
  • Run, romp, and play daily;
  • Thrive on attention and let people touch you;
  • Avoid biting when a simple growl will do;
  • On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass;
  • On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree;
  • When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body;
  • Delight in the simple joy of a long walk;
  • Be loyal;
  • Never pretend to be something you're not;
  • If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it;
  • When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently;
There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it.
 
You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good, so, love the people who treat you right.

Think good thoughts for the ones who don't ~ life is too short to be anything but happy.

Falling down is part of LIFE...

Getting back up is LIVING...
