There are times in everyone's life when we think…this didn't just happen…this was meant to
Mysteries of the universe,
you might say.
The events leading up to this day seem to me now like stars coming together in a
perfect line across the sky.
least that's what my heart tells me.
It was less than a week ago that we said goodbye to Little Mac.
It was a very difficult goodbye. And so we've all been working hard on slowly mending our broken hearts ever since, knowing
full well it's gonna take a long time for us to mend. And then I got this email from a friend in Rescue. It was from Lorraine
at Speaking of Dogs. Lorraine, the gal who got me started in this wonderful world of dog rescue. My mentor.
We also share a crazy love for ancient dogs, the older the better.
Lorraine wanted to know
if we could take in a little 10-year-old beagle named Norman.
She had me at the name…Norman.
Lorraine had taken him into their Rescue several weeks ago and he was settling in
so very nicely with his fabulous foster family until something tragic and unforeseen happened for this family. Foster mom's
elderly father has become seriously ill. She has to fly out of province to be there for him and she has no idea how long she'll
be gone. What was she to do with sweet Norman? With foster homes full, Lorraine thought of us.
our foster homes are full too…except…
Yes, there are times in everyone's life when we think…this didn't just happen. This was meant to happen. Maybe
Little Mac sent Norman. Mysteries of the Universe. All I know for certain is that Norman got lucky twice. First with his beautiful
foster family at Speaking of Dogs and now, with his new foster family at Big On Beagles…Little Mac's family.
Our sincere thanks
to Lorraine at Speaking of Dogs Rescue for entrusting us with Norman's care. We won't let you down, Lorraine.
We already love him to the moon and back.
Our thanks also goes out to Colleen for all she's
done for Norman. We wish her the best at this difficult time.
And we hope that knowing Norman is safe and loved
with us will bring her comfort.
Deanna, you know how we feel about you. How you stretch your heart
far and wide for the love of these dear little souls.
You are more special than words can describe.
And to Norman - you are indeed a very lucky little beagle. Not just one but two Rescue Groups looking out for you every
step of the way.
But of course, Deanna
and the rest of our gang at this beagle repair shop along with your friends at Speaking of Dogs would insist…
we're the lucky ones.
