Our household was left reeling and heartbroken yesterday with the terrible news from Houston, Our amazing friend Sandra who does such amazing things for rescue dogs and is an awesome pibble advocate lost her home to a fire. Not only has she lost everything but she lost 5 of her beautiful furbabes, Gorgeous Guero , Lucky, Tiger, Coco Chanel the Queen of the Universe and blogvilles Sweet Shelby.
Each of The Houston Pittie Pack came to Sandra with a sad story and each of them learned what being loved was like from her, each of them has blossomed under her loving care. We all followed Shelby’ story from the day Sandra found her dumped in a car park covered in bites and almost at deaths door, She did not hesitate in opening her heart and her home to Shelby, she was nursed back to health, she gave birth to the pups she was carrying, she went through heartworm treatment all with Sandra right by her side. Sandra found homes for all of the pups and continued to lavish love and care on Shelby and all her pack. In a nutshell she is one of the most unselfish, caring, unselfish and giving people I know. Thanks to her those most beautiful five dogs have crossed to the Rainbow Bridge knowing they were loved and knowing she did everything in her power to save them.
I am thankful Sandra , her baby and her Mom got out safely along with Brinks and Bella the remainder of the pack, the fact that Sandra and her Mom had to be pulled out of the house by firefighters whilst trying to save her dogs is testament to the strength of their love for their furbabes.
A chip in account has been set up just click on the picture of Brinks & Bella below to be taken there.
The chip in money will be used for immediate needs such as clothing, baby essentials as well as long term needs such as insurance deductible, lost wages and anything else that insurance may not cover.
As usual blogville has rallied as it does in a crisis and as of this evening the chip in has raised $3,685, it is indeed humbling to see just how supportive and caring our blogville family is. That is what we are a family we may not be a conventional family but we are there for each other, caring, supporting not just financially but emotionally and spiritually. We share each others highs & lows, our joys & despairs, our mad & silly moments and our losses, it does not matter that some of may never meet that is irrelevant what matters is how we are with each other and that we are there for each other.
So to the rest of my family I say a heartfelt Thank You for not only being there for Sandra and the pack but for being the wonderful family you all are. You are all Amazing, Wonderful People and I feel truly proud to know you all.
Run Free with all our furiends Guero, Tiger, Lucky Coco Chanel and Sweet, Gentle Shelby
