A Walk To Remember: Ed's Rescue Tale


I think everyone knows I have a soft spot for long eared dogs or else I wouldn't have a coon hound in my life so of course I was completely delighted to see Ed in all his long eared glory today! However, my delight turned to shock and horror as I walked towards him because 


he was all skin and bones


and his toenails were dirty and overgrown 


and his glorious ears weren't so glorious looking 


and to make matters worse, Ed's yard was covered in feces and


his living arrangements did not include a bowl of food or water and he certainly did not have a secure tie-out or collar so 


I gave Ed a big hug and promised to get him the help he deserved.


As soon as Officer Johanson saw Ed's emaciated body


she took him for the best ride of his life! A check up at the veterinarian's office and a chance to live with a caring owner (hopefully with me) was just what he deserved!

  7. Poor dog, neglected like that... I've seen people take better care of dogs that aren't theirs.

    Good thing you had him taken from there and hope you can get to take him in.

  15. Hello Friends,
    I appreciate all of your kind words! I will be posting updates later on today! I forgot to mention that for some odd reason I decided to walk by Ed's trailer park (which is a route I only go on occasionally) yesterday and it was clearly the right route to go on for Ed's sake!
