Friday’s Dog: Precious
Today’s Dog of the Day is Precious — a dog who fought through tragedy to form a special bond with his human.
We found Precious scarred, starved, beaten, and dragging eight feet of chain. It took a while to get him healthy and fattened up, but it took no more than an instant to fall in love with him.
Our relationship became even more important when I became seriously disabled due to a horseback riding accident. Initially I was forced to stay in bed, and then I went through the painful physical therapy that allowed me to walk — all the while Precious stayed right with me, and even slept in my bed. If ever one of us had a nightmare, we would comfort each other back to sleep. We worked on recovery together.
Although both of us will always carry scars, together we made it through.
