The eyes have it…
Having lost my old, faithful black Lab, I was bereft and lonely and there was a void in my life. Being a Cesar fan, I found myself at the shelter, walking down aisles, looking for a new dog. There were so many beautiful, cute, adorable fur kids, but none that I could home, yet wanting to take them all! Feeling sad and desperate, I came to the last aisle and the last cage, and there sat a “bag of bones” – literally no fur, undernourished and labelled “nondescript female dog”. Yet she had the most magnificent eyes in the world.
There was an instant connection; it was almost spiritual. That bag of bones called Wanda has turned out to be the most precious, special, beautifully natured and intelligent cross Bearded Collie, and she has made us so happy and proud. I have “lent” her to my husband to train and she has just won her KUSA Canine Good Citizen Award!
We have recently adopted another abused and neglected baby and we are taking it one day at a time with her. Thank you, Cesar, for teaching us to adopt, not shop! And thanks to the Canine Zone team too. I absolutely love the magazine.
