Meet the Canine Minister to a gentleman with Alzheimer's

Last edited Sun May 26, 2013, 08:54 AM - Edit history (2)

Casey wasn’t the most popular dog in her owner Carol Baird’s neighborhood of Dalton, Ga. A huge, burly Alaskan malamute, she had a heart of gold but a nose for trouble.

She’d slip out the Baird family’s back door and trot down the street without a care. Most people gave her a wide berth. That was hardly surprising. From a distance, Casey looked a lot like a wolf.

She behaved like one too, or at least had an appetite like one. Neighbors often stormed over to complain. “Your dog got out again, and ate all of our dog’s food!” or “Casey’s turned over our garbage!”

So when a man rapped on Carol’s door, said he lived three blocks away and then asked for her dog’s name, Carol braced herself. What did Casey do this time?

1. Way to get me tearful on a Sunday morning.. beautiful story!

Dogs, they make our lives better, richer and fuller. After 3 years missing my faithful mutt, we finally have a new fur ball to love.. and he's a messed up rescued dog, but getting stronger every day.

2. Companion animals are of amazing service to we humans.

I'm glad you found a new fur ball to add to your family, and that he found you.
