Heart-warming stories of adopted pets and the people who love them.
The tale of Sherlock Bones
Sherlock came in to the shelter as an old man who needed lots of tlc. We saw him on his first day and immediately rushed over and picked him up for fostering. After having this wonderful old man in our home for a month he was discovered to have liver failure so we decided to adopt Sherlock into our home of already 3 dogs. Sherlock was given 6 months to live out his days and be a happy go lucky dog. He went camping at the beach, to the river, the park, and to stores where he loved all the kids he met. His hearing is gone, his eye sight barely there, but he would still play and bounce about every time I got home. He couldn't wait to see what yummy treat I had brought him. I'm sad to say that this is likely his last month with us, as his health has started to decline. But in the short amount of time we have had the pleasure of having this wonderful old man with us he has brought us great joy. I can't even say how much I will miss him when he has crossed over the Rainbow bridge. Thank you WHS for sending that one email looking for a foster for him. That single email conected me with my first dog to call my own, and he is a very special dog who will always hold special place in my heart. I have now had the pleasure of opening our home to two seniors and will continue to do so. These wonderful guys need a happy ending.
