My sweet friend, Melinda-- Lady Jicky to all of you-- lost her precious Coco. I posted a farewell for Coco.
After seeing our hurricane news, Melinda sent me pictures of a hurricane she was part of when she visited New Zealand several years ago.
It was quite an experience, as many in North and South Carolina know all too well.
After the hurricane, it was all calm, but during...
It was frightening.
I wanted to share what Melinda told me though. She and her husband felt that Coco would want her to have another Pekingese. They went to the shelters there, but there were no small dogs, let alone a Pekingese. There aren't rescues there like we have here, but she wanted to rescue one. So, she thought she would adopt a retired breeding dog-- and give it a loving home like it never had.
However, she got there, and there was a black puppy. It had some medical problems, and Melinda knew they could help this puppy and get him the surgery he needed. So, he went home with them. Look at that face! (Yes, he is as full of mischief as he looks like.)
