Then she was 3 days together with a guy with a bad attitude. So she moved in with me in my house to be under "check out" since I don't like when people blame their attitude on a dog that cannot defend himself (her) I can tell that she was great, ok she ate some underwear's, but that gave us an excuse to buy new ones.
I LOVE THIS PICTURE!!! Look at grandma, priceless.
Our very excellent adoption partner Martina Ricci found a wonderful warmhearted loving family for Spencer up North. Spencer has been there for one month now.
I can tell you that when she arrived safely, thanks to Martina's partner Pio the driver, the whole Italian family were waiting for Spencer to welcome her.

Out to LegaProAnimale for sterilization. She was such a trooper even if the vet had a hard time finding her vein. She stayed over the night, picked up by Mia and brought back to her house.

My friend Martina sent me an email one week ago about this dog with a picture with the story (read earlier blog.) She asked me what I thought. It is so great to work together with Martina since she is so much my eyes.It's a jungle out there with different cases and every day we get so many requests, but Martina knows. This past Sunday came Sunday Rose, together with the veterinarian Sara who had saved her from drowning in the ditch. Martina was also there helping to greet our new girl at the Hospice.
Sunday Rose had been thrown like an old rag into a ditch. She was laying there barely alive, her claws were so long and curled. Someone had dumped her, this 15 years-old female, blind, arthritis and yesterday I got a text that she also has leichaminiosis.But what I like with my team is, and what we have learned, is that the diagnosis can be bad but we fight for our clients (as long as they don't suffer.) We are generally not used to see sick animals (nor many sick people either --- we hide them away, rarely seen or heard, certainly not out roaming on the streets) so we fear what we see, scared about being reminded about pain and death. Does it scare our sense of immortality?
We still need help with donations for her treatments because her medicine is expensive -that is why many sick animals are being dumped here.
People cannot afford to treat the illnesses and many don't want to be lectured at the veterinarian clinic. Their belief makes them leave the dog so God can make the choice. When they hear about us, they say God sent us to save their animal (it is delusional and a self-fulfilling prophesy).
Love has different eyes and minds, can we call that Amore?

Picture three; A dog behind a broken cage, (we make sure that dogs will be saved)/div>
Picture four; A child is kissing an old dog (we make sure they get love)
What was amazing with the children was their curiosity and desire to learn, but no fear of seeing something unpleasant. Many adults looked away saying "Oh, I cannot look at that." Many times their questions were inspiring and challenging, and not to forget: they are our future. That's Amore.
