Oh so sad when I read this about Oscar, I remember his story because he was on the website 10 days after we fostered Brandon. I recall Oscar was in a real bad state with mange. His was an unfortunate story. However, after looking on at his more recent news, his summer holidays, the smiles on the the faces of the people in his life I don't feel as sad because his forever family clearly gave him a super kind home and he was as happy as a dog can be. That's all we can hope for with any of the DiD dogs, that they will get the love they deserve. My thoughts are with his former fosterers and family.
I call animals "guardians of Being," especially animals that live with humans. Because, for many humans, it's through their contact with animals they get in touch with that level of being. Eckhart Tolle
