Yes, it is. :) Not to hijack the thread..but I actually just recently learned one of "my" dogs at the humane society that came in as a neglect case, only days away from death he was so skinny, is heartworm positive and will have to be put down. I handled it well until I knelt in front of his kennel and he started licking my hands and face. The only thought that kept me from bawling my eyes out was, "but I saved that one." :)

It is a great feeling from my end to see this guy with an AWESOME owner that he deserves. :)

What a cutie pie! Thanks, both of you, for helping him. :) He couldn't have a better home!

Tessa-

Don't count out the hw positive dogs...if you can get him a few more days, then e-mail me pictures of him and let's see if we can't work some magic...I have lot's of rescue contacts and most of them will treat hw's...one thing your shelter can do is put those kind of cases on PetFinder as URGENTS...there are a lot of rescues that monitor the site for just those sorts of cases...if it is not too late, perhaps I can help you...actually, it is sometimes easier to get help with the "hopeless" dogs than it is with the adoptables...if it is too late, then don't kick yourself...he will be in a very good place in very good company...you can e-mail me at [email protected] you don't hear from me, then you can always call me because sometimes I don't get to the office to check e-mail every day and tomorrow is iffy since I have a vet appt. and the dogs are keepng me pretty busy right now :)...I'll let you guys know how it goes at the vet's tomorrow...we appreciate all of those good thoughts and prayers!!!!

He is just adorable- he reminds me of my Madison as an old guy.

I hope his vet appointment goes well tomorrow... I'll keep my fingers crossed for him (and my chis will keep their paws crossed). Thanks so much for giving the little guy a great home. He is so lucky.

I know how that is. I've felt that way myself many times. Because, as hard as it is, there are the ones that you just can't save. I had one of my foster dogs that ended up with late-stage cancer when he was with me. He had been an abuse case and I had had him for two weeks when we found out. So, I kept him for the next six months, until he passed away. The rescue (the old one, not the current one) was going to put him down, but I begged them to let me keep him. I paid for all his medical treatment. It still kills me to think of it, but the only thing that keeps me sane is knowing that maybe his first six years weren't very good. But his last six months were. And maybe, just maybe, that made up for it.

You want to know what I think? I think there is NO maybe. None. I think it is a definite yes. :) Of course the amazing six months of love and caring made up for it. Because no pain can match the power of love.
