Walker

Our latest Buddyism --

"Cat's motto: No matter what you've done wrong, always try to make it look like the dog did it." ~ Unknown

Our motto: No matter what we cats & dogs do wrong, we always try to make it look like Jan did it. ~Jan's Funny Farm

We love happy endings. Although this story has a sad beginning, there is a positive ending. It still amazes us how folks reach out to help one another in a time of need. Initially one woman took on the financial responsibility but then the community chipped in to help a cocker spaniel puppy now named Walker who was purportedly dragged down the street unintentionally.

Paws for an act of kindness
Woman see best, worst in aiding puppy dragged behind car

The nightmare is over for a puppy that was dragged down the road behind a car for nearly a mile on Aug. 8.

The puppy ended up in the loving arms of a woman who did everything she could to make sure he would live.

Linda Tilton, who rescued the American cocker spaniel she named Walker, said she learned after that day just how much evil there was in the world.

But she also demonstrated how much good there is, too.

"It's really opened my eyes, but there's a lot more happiness and joy," Tilton said. "We love [Walker] to death. He really is a survivor. He has no fear, and he is happy all the time and literally leaps across the house. It's almost as if he was blessed with one more day, and he knows it."

  12. Oh, I definitely used to be blamed for everything when my kitty sister, Lemon, was alive!! And the worst part is - she'd do the naughty thing, leave me in it for the humans to find (and blame) - and then saunter back in nonchalantly to watch me get told off!! :-)

  13. What a sad, but nice story.

    We like your motto. Maybe we could use it in a slightly altered version.
