Lemur, a beautiful dog, had been abused for many years. The unkind people did not see that animals, like humans, would also feel miserable when subjected to such mistreatment.
The dog only wanted to be loved, and live the life a dog deserves, filled with playtime, lots of treats and tons of affection. By the time Lemur was rescued, so much damage had been done but rescuers didn’t give up on him.
Even when he was saved, then passed over on adoption day, his foster mom still had hope that he would find his forever family.
After all, he made it. The ideal family, with a lovely home and other Whippet siblings to play with. Lemur got to be a real dog. He didn’t have to worry about being fed or cared for! The hands that touched him were only filled with love and kindness. LOVE, just for him!
However, his health began to deteriorate rapidly a month later. He had endured much too much abuse. The damage was already extensive, and it was too late to reverse it.
But as he passed away, he did so in his human’s arms, filled with so much love and appreciation. His human was so grateful that Lemur came into their lives, even if it was for a short time, even if it went by too fast, it was worth every minute.
As Lemur crossed the Rainbow Bridge, he did so with love and dignity, remembering only that month filled with happiness, kindness and love.
