This story had to be told! Jada was one of our senior girls in foster care who has very recently found her forever family. Her name is now Ellie which we are sure she likes. This story however is not aout her forever home, but about how she said thank you to the woman who rescued her and was her foster Mom.
Ellie's foster Mom took a bad fall leaving the doctor's office last month. She injured both her feet and was unable to walk. She was feeling pretty awful from the pain and from the fact that people actually walked by her while she lay on the sidewalk! Someone from the doctor's office came out and got her inside, called her husband to come get her to bring her home.
Upon arriving, Mom collapsed in the nearest chair while her husband went to let Ellie out of her crate. Ellie assumed Mom wasn't there since Dad let her out. When she came downstairs to find Mom, she went immediately to her, laid her head on her chest and refused to move. She licked the tears off Mom's face and never left her side.
The next day, Mom arrived home in a walking boot and again Ellie took up her post chin on chin. Mom decided she needed to try to walk Ellie outside. Walk they did, side by side, step by very slow step. Ellie never pulled or left her side, only looked up at her with love and care in her eyes. And they say dogs don't have feelings or brains! The Boastful Blogger says how can anyone read this story and believe that!
As Mom grew stronger, Ellie followed her everywhere she went. Ellie was rescued and now it was her turn to return the favor.
For this I say, the family that found and adopted Ellie were the lucky ones. We wish you years of love!

My parents are the lucky ones who adopted Jada/Ella. I've had the honor of spending the last week with her as well. She really is a sweet, perceptive dog and we all love her to pieces!

I just teared up! This is that special bond between animal and human. Not everything needs to be said. It's that gut or animal instinct that even we have and don't always act on. When someone is in need animals just act on it!

This is the true blessing of loving a senior dog. They have seen life and love their families with all that they have to offer.
