Story of Two Brave Pups

Wizard and I were watching the news while cooking dinner last night and saw the best story. Two puppies who were badly burned  in a house fire at the beginning of the year are recovering. Dr. Grossman of the well known Grossman Burn Center, has been volunteering his time, expertise and supplies to help the pups.

They are doing really well now. I tried to find the link to the news show we were watching but was unsuccessful. (A link to an older story about the pups is here ) To sum up, a bunch of people cared about these two little pups, and now they have a chance at a really good life.

Wizard was so into this story, he didn’t even flinch when I said,  “We could adopt one of them.  Look at them, so loving! Who cares about the scars.” Even as I said it, I knew it was insane. We are still waiting to see what the next step with BLB is, but still…those puppies are so sweet and such little survivors!

And then then the story went on to say that the two dogs are going to become Service Dogs to work with other burn patients.

Awesome. So Awesome. What a loving inspiration these two dogs will be with their visible scars, brave yet loving hearts,  showing others that they can get through it. And they will know how special they are each day when they go to “work.” Yeah…just awesome.

Wizard and I were so touched by this story.  So I thought I’d share it with you all :-)

Have a great day!

    Poor puppies. But at least they’re getting treatment and a new future. Whoever came up with the idea to train them as service dogs was inspired. Thanks for sharing the story, Jen. You and Wizard probably would make awesome parents for a special needs dog, but after BLB gets back to his life.

    Have a great day yourself. =o)

    So nice to see that a story had a follow up. Too often we hear bad news and never get to see the ending, happy or sad.

    Thanks for sharing.

    *sniffle* That’s so awesome. May they find all the love and care in the world and bring comfort to those who have suffered like they did. Dogs are so amazing. Okay. Cats are too, but…dogs. ;)

    When the time is right and you and the Wiz are ready, Jen, the right dog will appear. It’s funny how that works.

    The poor babies. They will make excellent service dogs. The patients will most likely respond very well to them.
    Loved yesterday’s post. They both will do :).
    We’re headed home to the cold weather. Honestly, I’m ready to get back to normal. I’m craving a workout – yes, I know I’m strange.
    Have a nice day.
