35. I guess she did. What a sweet girl. You are very fortunate, as was she.
That is a truly lovely story. I am choked up as I type this. I adopted my sweet Sheena by accident, as well. My friend says they find us and I have come to believe her. :-)

My perfect cocker spaniel, Barney, was on prescription food. He was running out, so I went to his vet's one evening to get another case. His vet was out of town, so he gave the name of another nearby animal hospital to consult in case of emergency. I went there and when they learned I had a cocker spaniel they asked me if I wanted another. I told them that I had lost my little Samantha the month before so I was not. They explained that they had this dog, whose owner had died. The estate was paying to board her for a month. After that, if not adopted, she would be sent to the shelter or euthanized, if the no-kill shelter did not have room. How could I let them add insult to injury for this poor dog? :shrug:

I lost my beloved Barney last November, at 18. I was devastated and Sheena was noticeably unhappy. I found out about this tiny Brussels Griffon, whose owner had also died. He was nine and had been placed separately from his biological sister. He also faced euthanasia because his adoptive home was not working out. I took a chance on him, as well. My vet gave me reasons why he thought it could work, but it worked out better than I could have imagined. My little guy bonded with Sheena that very first day. He slept behind her on her bed and followed her lead in everything. I cannot believe I have lost her, as well. I did all I possibly could, but lost her three months ago. My little guy misses her so. I feel bad, but feel worse for him. He lost a second sister. I think he would like your dog. She seems very sweet, like my Sheena. :-)
