I discovered this heart-wrenching photo of a young boy that, in the midst of a Manila monsoon, saved his dog from drowning by hoisting the dog over his back, holding its paws.
Maybe I'm just super sensitive today or I'm especially touched by this picture, but as soon as I saw it my eyes welled up and needed to blow my nose.
This is love.
Reminds me of when Hurricane Andrew hit in the 90s when newspapers blasted the shelters for forcing people to give up their pets in order to receive shelter. I don't even want to think about that right now. UGH!!!!
If this card is a downer--I'm sorry. But at least the boy and his dog were saved and didn't have to be separated!!!!! :)
When's the last time you had a cry-fest over a pet?

I totally agree with you @dominika and you know your pet would probably do the same if the could.

Last time I cried about my pet is @nicolejb's fault. Lol. (Jk!) :P I was telling her about my dog Jasmine. Jazz was my husband, Joe's K-9 police partner. He was assigned Jazz a couple of weeks before our son, Levi, was born, so they've always been companions. K9s live in your home, are part of the family, highly trained, etc. Exactly a month before Levi turned two, my husband was shot and killed on duty. Jazz was shot, also, resulting in an injury that required her to be retired. Joe's captain brought Jazz to my home as a gift from the department, to me and Levi, because she'd never lived with anyone else and the squad thought Joe would want her to watch over us. Every now and then, I just look at her, and the look in her eyes makes me cry, but she's the absolute best. 馃挏 And absolutely, their love is unconditional... It's amazing!!!
