In Topic: Wings for Lola

I remember when Lola's former mother contacted me about taking her. I had just had surgery on both hands and typed her back anyway telling her I would take Lola with great enthusiasm (and painkillers). We agreed to meet at a playdate in Orlando where this woman arrived extra early with poor Lola. She made extreme overtures, crying and whatnot, and told me to make sure I took good care of Lola. (As if I wouldn't?)

The woman left without a backward glance and poor Lola wandered around this dog park looking for her mother who had just abandoned her. This was the most pitiful sight I had seen so far doing rescue. For the first time, I actually broke down and cried for this poor dog who had been such a good girl to someone so shallow. Normally surrenders don't bother me because I am glad for the dog being away from someone who doesn't want them any more, but Lola was different.

Lola had a bad eye, and I lovingly called her Lola Ebola, actually I would sing it to her. She had an incredible 'lightning bolt tail too!' The end of her tail had been crinked somehow and it looked like a little lightning bolt when you turned it just right. She didn't like anyone sneaking up on her and she usually put the young ones in their place. She loved the sunshine and walkies.

I am very sad for Tom that he wasn't rewarded for his altruism with more time with her. I know she loved being one of a few rather than one of so many at my house. I know she was a treasure to him, and she deserved to be treated as such. I am comforted knowing that she knew true love before she left this earth.

Bye, sweet Lola, til I see you again.

Doesn't Vicky make it all see SO EASY? Trust me, few could do what she does. She is Florence N-IG-htingale.
