Lola's new mom shares:
My family experienced some financial hardship with our family business; this caused us to downsize in every way. We just recently moved into a smaller home where we are starting from the bottom again in hopes to regain business; my youngest was stating how much he would love to have a dog. I decided we would take a special trip to the shelter .. Mind you I have 5 children from 5-25 yrs so we have had pets before but this time I decided I would like to find a dog a little more laid back so I could have those evenings of having that special dog lay on the sofa with me as we or I lol would enjoy those movies on hallmark channel .
We did spot a younger black mouth cur but found she had been adopted. The shelter staff pointed out Loloa who had a very sweet disposition. I reached in through the door cage with my fingers and she literally grabbed my fingers with her paw and didn't let go as if to say don't leave me ....that's all it took . .. I noticed she had had puppies recently and I felt in some way she had lost her home and her puppies and with having had so many life experiences with my children and my one in particular serving in Iraq so far away , it feels so empty to not have all of the family together.. I felt that we could love Lola. I messaged my son and he was so excited to hear that there would be a new family member in the household for when he gets home and my youngest one asked every minute when we were going to go get her.
The day before the county called me to tell me she was heart worm positive .. it is heart breaking to know that it just takes a little pill once a month but no one gave it to her.
