Here's Sparky. He is one lucky little guy. He almost died from heart worms. Literally, he was at death's door. But several IG Rescue folks were able to get him the special care that he needed. Check out his movie. I love this little guy!

  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

Hey Jean! I saw this video on another rescue site the other day and thought that looked like your house. *I recognise the yard from other videos* wink.gif
