So glad that she give the dog a home and plenty of love.
This shows that you are one caring and loving person!!!
Several months after she arrived at the LifeLine Animal Project shelter in Atlanta, the veterinarian delivered extremely unwelcome news: The deaf and elderly pit bull, who’d likely never lived inside a home, had a [ca.nc.er] that couldn’t be treated.
Some might have opted to end Grandma Dot’s life at that point. She’d been at the shelter since February.
But staff at the LifeLine Animal Project became more determined than ever to find this friendly, gentle, [dy.ing] dog a home with someone who would become a foster hospice parent.
The shelter would provide medication and other support, and the fospice parent would make sure Grandma Dot’s best days were still ahead of her.
In early July, Jessica Miller was just completing her LifeLine Animal Project volunteer orientation. The last part was a tour of the shelter.
After years of [ne.glect], then months in the shelter, Grandma Dot went home on July 8.
Grandma Dot is loving her new life, and Miller loves giving it to her.
The dog’s crazy for car rides with the air conditioning up at full blast, and is so enthusiastic about kicking up dirt after peeing that she comes close to toppling herself over.
Grandma Dot’s as vigorous with her licks as she is finicky with her snacks — which Miller finds completely charming.
Miller says: I don’t know how long they will have together, but she knows it won’t be even close to forever. It’s hard. She’s broken down a few times, and just held her and cried, The thing that makes it so much better is seeing how much joy she has for everything I’m able to give her.
Hirsch says: It is a beautiful thing that Miller has done here — taking Grandma Dot in and loving her so well.
It’s everything she and the others at LifeLine Animal Project had hoped for.
Thank you for giving this adorable dog a reason to live and be loved!!!
Grandma Dot deserves every happiness! So glad she will know unconditional love as she lives out the rest of her days.
God bless you both!!!
