Angel came to us as sudden and unplanned as she left us. One cold night, faith brought her (and her friend Buddy) to us. There was no way we could turn down those two abused, cold faces. We let them into our homes and our hearts. We asked Beagle Paws for help getting them. We kept the two while they were featured on the website. They were so happy to finally be loved and so eager to please us. Despite our hearts not wanting to let Buddy go (we could not find an apartment in St. John ’s that would allow us 3 dogs), he got adopted to a wonderful family. Angel stayed with us a few months longer and we actually found a nice landlord that allowed dogs. One September evening while out on a walk with Angel, we looked at how happy she was and we decided we were not going to let her go! She graced our lives for 4 happy years.
Angel tragically died in November. We were not ready to let her go. She came into our lives and showed us that although people can be cold and hurtful, she was willing to forgive. All it took to make her happy was someone to love her. It is probably selfish of me to say, but I am glad her previous owners didn’t love her because I would have never found her, I would have never seen how absolutely happy she was when she got a treat or a rub, I would have never fell in love with her, would have never fostered other dogs or wouldn’t be who I am today without her. I am glad we had the chance to show her what it was like to be loved because she truly deserved every ounce of love, plus more, that she got. She came into our lives and left her paw prints over our hearts and soles. Angel, we’d do or give anything to have you back, you were too good for this world, we miss you so much. I hope we made you as happy as you made us. RIP my little princess. You are, and will always be, truly truly missed.
