October 2010

Vera was picked up out in the wilderness by one of our volunteers.
She was emaciated and scared, and oh so sweet.

When she wasn't claimed by her owners, she became a H.A.R.T. dog.

Everyone loved Vera. She melted the heart of everyone who met her. She was a little overwhelmed by the activity in our house, but seemed to settle in quickly.

She was vet checked and found to be in good health, though she had some dental issues. Doc said it looked like she may have been a kennel chewer, and her teeth were pretty worn, even though she was only about 7-8 years old.

We had Vera for awhile when I contacted the folks who had adopted Piper (Star), knowing that at one time they had been looking for a second dog. I thought that Vera would fit in well with their family, so I invited them over to meet her.

One thing led to another, and Vera now has a wonderful home with her new sister Piper, and wonderful wonderful parents who take such good care of her. Her new name is Penny. :)

We get to see Piper and Penny often, as we dog sit for them whenever their parents are out of town. :) It's so good to see them and spend time with them.

I love this little gal, and a piece of my heart will always be hers.
