Simon's story started out heartbreaking but turned out great. Superbowl Weekend 2010 someone abandoned a senior dog outside a clinic in the Atlanta area. He was dumped outside in an unused crate in the rain and was up to his belly in freezing water with no food. He sat there until Tuesday and barked himself hoarse trying to get someone to notice him. Finally someone noticed movement and brought him inside.

I came by that night to pick up a foster dog but was asked if I could take him instead. He needed extra special care and I work with tiny terrified dogs. He was skin and bones, and unresponsive. His fur was dirty and matted. He would go limp when you picked him up. He ignored the other dogs in my house. He did not know what a kind human touch was, what a soft bed, toys, treats, clean water and food were all about.

I fell in love with him and knew he would be a foster failure. After intense care, a good grooming and lots of love from me, my dogs, family and friends, he is now a wonderful happy guy. He is going thru a 2nd puppyhood, loves his toys and loves to play with his 4 fur sisters. He is now a 12 yr old Silky Terrier and I LOVE my very handsome little man.
