THE POWER OF A DOG'S LOVE
The Story about Holly
It is a rare and magical occasion when an animal enters your life and changes
you forever. From the moment she padded into our lives, to the day she
died peacefully in our arms, Holly did just that! She delighted our world.
We heard about Holly and made arrangements to meet with her owner. When the
woman showed up, she dumped Holly out of the car and just drove off muttering
about having too many dogs - there were five more little dogs in the car.
Poor Holly limped over to our car and we took her home. She was really sad
and had a huge lump on her belly. A month later, after time spent with the
family and many visits to all Creatures Great and Small Veterinary Clinic -
paid for by Senior Dog Rescue of Oregon (SDRO) donors like you - she started
smiling (yes, actually smiling). Her limp and lump were gone.

Holly was our first foster and after just a few days, like many other
SDRO fosters, we joined the ranks of "failed foster" because we kept her.
We couldn't have asked for a sweeter, more well-mannered and congenial
soul. She was such a part of the family.
Holly understood the feelings of everyone in the household. When my daughter
experienced big anxiety around high school, Holly attended with her - for
two years! The students and teacher totally loved her. Nobody ever asked
if she was a service dog. Two more years and she could have graduated
with a high school diploma!
Patiences personified, Holly endured years of Halloween costuming - she was
often seen in public as a pumpkin, a wizard and even Marge Simpson! The
kids used her as a mannequin, photographing their new clothes and hats on
her while she slept right through it. We've got the photos and videos
Holly's favorite adventures were trips to Nye Beach. She'd happily introduce
herself to all the walkers. For an old pooch she could really hustle.
Sometimes Holly would even outrun my daughter if she spotted a beachcomber
she hadn't greeted yet.
We miss Holly every day and will always love her. Thanks to SDRO for
helping to find her. We are forever grateful.
