Shortly after my divorce, I went in search of a dog - and it was the best thing I could have done! My kids and I found Honey at a local pet shop where a fostering rescue was having an adoption event. There were about 7 dogs in a pen in the store, all jumping and barking and clamoring for attention - all except one lovely sad looking lab in the back. I watched as she growled and cowered when anyone approached her - but was surprised to see my young son walking slowly toward her, talking quietly. He stood by the pen and a few moments later she was licking his hand, happy as could be. My daughter joined them and a few minutes later we had this timid beauty on a leash, taking her outside for a walk, getting to know each other. We immediately fell in love and applied to adopt Honey. After getting approved a few days later, we picked her up and she became part of our family (for over 5 years now!). Little did we know what she'd been through - she had heart worm, was quite starved, had been severely beaten, and suffered even worse traumas at the hands of her last owner. We've had our good days and our trying days, but every day since she joined our family has been little brighter because she is part of our lives. She's a goofball, but she is the sweetest, most loyal, loving pup anyone could want. We are a very lucky family!
