A new life for Spike

Published 10:18am Friday, April 19, 2013

I can do the best I can to set things in motion to try to achieve the best possible outcome for these animals, but I, like us all, am in the hands of fate.

Quite near Landrum vet there’s a chiropractor named Dr. Gina Barros, who I’ve recently met.  Her office is amazing, if you go to visit, you’ll find as many dogs as people.  It goes without saying, the good doctor and I hit it off immediately.

Janet Hudson met Spike at the vet, learned his story and went to tell Dr. Barros.  Dr. Barros has a long time dear friend in Arden who was looking for a small dog she could care for.  Gina’s friend, Lorraine, came down, met Spike and fell in love.  Spike, Lorraine and her bird all sleep together and for the past few weeks he’s been in a caring and loving home.

There’s only one problem, I didn’t even get a chance to kiss Spike goodbye, so ladies, work it out.  I’m worse than Mother Nature when I’m angry. Just kidding.

To all who were there for my little man Spike when he needed you, God bless.  Each little step matters to help us reach the final goal.

Thanks for listening.
