    Beautiful story, beautifully written. Our dogs aren’t “perfect”, but they sure are loved and make our lives better, don’t they? Thank you for saving Jack and Zelda. And yes, they do speak, and when we listen, we understand.

  3. thanks for supporting Jack and Zelda– and all wandering souls who find homes –by including this tale which is more commonplace than we sometimes believe. countless numbers of human beings realize what a special bond we each have with other species if we only just make the TIME…the precious time to reach out and include in our personal lives those who need some assistance and protection and consistency and security. I am honored to appear here sharing their story and my family’s. we adore all sentient beings…and consider ourselves blessed to do so. the rewards are incredible every second of every day. thanks, valsilver and roy! what a terrific site this is!

    I really enjoyed your story – lots of emotion and made me tear up. Beautifully written!

  21. I love checking in to see if folks loved Jack and Zelda as much as I did…so my furry kids live on…there is a chapter two I need to write some day…when I heal a bit more…Jack is gone now, too…and the tale is unbelievable. But a tiny version of Jack, a puppy mill rat terrier from West Virginia and who had lived in three homes, keeps my heart full…his name is Gabriel and he is an absolute character and a half!

  22. and thanks, Daniella….and thanks to all of you and to Rachele…this is doing my old heart great good! <3 and our vet's wife, whom I love, shared all of this on her FB page!
