    Ruby was a dog who showed up in my yard one summer day in 2000, dragging a heavy chain attached to her thick neck with electrical tape, hopping on 3 legs- skin and bones, obviously mother to many litters. Abused she had finally escaped. She died in the early hours of May 28th. I hope I did right by her. Please give a thought for Ruby and all like her, there are way too many like her. Q.

    It sounds like you did right by her as soon as you took her in. [​IMG] I'm sorry she is gone but I'm glad she found you.

    Many dogs have sad beginnings but not all get to have happy endings - thank you for giving Ruby hers.

    Thanks for your kind words, it does help. Ruby has a cat, Teyla, who just loved her to pieces, slept whth her all the time and followed her around. She seems lost, running in and out of the house meowing up a storm, I think shes looking for her. Poor babies. . .they are my babys you know. q
