Not a Border Collie

Recommended Posts

Some of you know that my mother passed away in March; I posted in another section about her love for animals, especially abandoned ones and strays. She had very little money, but there was a very small inheritance. So I thought to myself, "What would Maman want me to do this this money?" I knew in my heart that she would want it used for an anmal cause. Coincidentally, just before the check arrived from her attorney, my son's Corgi mix, Bruno, took ill, and has very little time left. My grandsons love dogs, and so, after checking with my son and daughter-in-law, I used to money to buy an 8-week-old puppy that had been abandoned from a local Humane Society branch, as well as a pre-paid certificate of spaying at a later date. The pup is a female Golden Retriever/Lab mix; the owner dumped the litter of pups because he raises purebred Goldens (the pups were the product of an accidental liaison with a neighbor's dog) and did not want to be bothered with "mutts", so he gave the pups to the shelter even though they were only 8 weeks old.

Maman would be proud.
