I have copied and pasted this from Aksharaa's blog, 'Pawprints in the Sands of Time' So, if you are a special ‘Rescue Doggy’ or know of one, please send in your story to Joan at http://boccibeefs.blogspot.com/p/your-rescue-stories.html
Aksharaa and her husband, both busy surgeons, took an Indian street dog into their hearts and home to live with them and their two yellow Labradors and he, named Shadow, has repaid them handsomely with love, affection and loyalty. The lives that some dogs have to live is beyond belief.
Without folks like Aksharaa and her husband and Joan and many, many more, so many of these loyal beings would be condemned to a life of hardship - or a sudden and undeserved death. (and the same goes for many other mammals that some humans treat as inconsequential!)
