Fueled by destroyed furniture, food follies, bizarre accidents, and near death experiences, the fire spread to every corner of their lives.They experienced both the pleasure of seeing unloved and damaged dogs be made whole and healed by the love of a family and the love of other amazing dogs, as well as the hardships of having to make such great sacrifices to give them what they needed to grow in strength and joy.
They also experienced the happiness of watching a dogs spirit be lit up by life, along with heartbreak when it was extinguished by death.
Forty-plus dogs later, they’re still living a life dedicated to canine rescue and what it means to live by the Buddy System.
