A case like SnickersPublished 10:11am Friday, September 20, 2013
I gave her the number of Richard and Jackie, two fellow church members and dear friends who have fostered animals for me before.
“Call them, Mary Ann. Tell them you spoke with me and ask if they could hold him till we figure something out. If they can’t, call me back and we’ll try another avenue.”
After we hung up, I began to shake with frustration but mostly for poor Snickers, whose life I prayed we could turn around. The vision of Patches crossed my mind, a dog I was reluctant to take on because I was overwhelmed as I am now. Dear Patches, who has since passed, became the most loving pet and taught me a great lesson. I hit my knees in tears, “Are You doing this to me again Lord? If so please help me, although I suspect you already have your angels on the job.”
Snickers was snatched from death and, bless their hearts, Richard and Jackie fostered him with all their other kids. Snicker’s has been neutered and has received all his tests and shots. I recently met him and believe me, he’s just as beautiful as his photo, and sweet too.
I’ve received many heartwarming emails from Jackie telling me how he’s playing and how she thinks he never had a toy before.
