This is Abby, my mom's pup, who spent Thanksgiving with us so Mom could go visit family down south. Abby is also a rescue dog; she was found terrified and wandering the streets by animal control. Despite her stray status Abby is very friendly, gentle and sweet-tempered so we believe she once was cared for, although no one ever claimed her.
Abby only had one more day to live before euthanization when (happily) my mother met and adopted her. I know it's not possible for everyone to adopt a pet, but if you are thinking about a puppy or a kitten as a gift for your kids this holiday season please visit your local animal shelter. There are hundreds of lovely and lonely critters there just waiting for someone to bring them home and make them part of the family.
