In Tribute of Shelby

Two years ago today my life changed forever with a simple call from Sandra of THE PETTIE PACK. She had found a bruised and broken dog laying on the hot cement at a local mall and brought it home. Sandra ad I had met through DWB back in April 2010  when Mona read a blog with a cute little wire haired dachshund named Tiger and fell in love. Since they lived in Houston I invited them to the Spring Fling. Mona got to meet Tiger and I gained a new friend. I had heard all the bad things people said about pit bulls and had been scared. All of that changed om July 3, 2010 when Sandra called asking for help and I saw our dear sweet Shelby. It was the July 4th weekend and all the vets were closed except for Emergency Clinics. Sandra had rescued pits before and knew how to help them but never one as abused as Shelby. We decided to wait until the 5th and then take her to my vet.  We didn't have a name for her yet so when the office asked for her name, I named her Shelby, after the Shelby in the movie Steel Magnolias, because she need all the strength that girl did to survive. The rest you all know. The DWB community came together to help save a dog that they didn't know and changed all our lives. I am a better person because of her and she is and always will have a place in my heart.

God Bless.......Sarah, the Mommy

My heart just breaks every time I think of Shelby and her brothers and sisters lost in that terrible fire. I know they are in a better place, but oh how I still miss them ...

Your pal, Pip
