Grit Part 2

Noel has a good life today, but we don't know exactly how she lived before we rescued her. We know just enough.

We do know she was about 40% underweight. She was missing a lot of fur. She had recently had puppies. She was found in a rural county which didn't have a no-kill policy in their shelters. She was rescued on day 59, one day before she was to be put down.

She clearly was having a hard life. Thank goodness she was tough enough to make it that far. Thank goodness we were blessed to be able to rescue her.

She was terrified of me at first, especially if I had a jacket on. Worse than that, I didn't really want a new dog in my life. We had just lost my best pet a few months prior. I didn't want Noel and I don't think she wanted me.

We did need each other though.

One year after Noel joined the family, she saved my life. That's a story for another day. (CLICK HERE TO READ IT)

Noel has been my pet partner through my cancer crisis. We've both been through a lot. We're tough on the inside. We've got grit.
