Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our
circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures
and the whole of nature in it’s beauty.
Piper and her siblings were born to a stray momma dog on a cold December night. Within days they were picked up by animal control in a small Arkansas town. They grew to adoptable age at the shelter and Piper watched as her littermates were all chosen for loving homes. But no one would even look at little Piper. You see, she had been born with a bad eye that didn’t look too pretty and was blind in that eye.. She was still a sweet, beautiful little girl with lots of spunk, but no one gave her a chance to show her great little spirit. I saw her photo on petfinder and because she looked like an Anatolian Shepherd I have, I read her bio. Well, when I talked with the wonderful shelter worker, Susan, and heard that no one wanted this pup, I knew I had to do something. That meant adopting her into my family of canines and assuming the responsibility for fixing her eye problem. She has now had her surgery to remove the eye and is doing wonderfully. She is a funny, happy, loving girl, that fits right in with the gang here. Many of my visitors fall in love with her, but she is a keeper!
