Remember Horus, the 12 year-old dog friend who spends his days comforting his cancer stricken Dad during final stage hospice care? Horus, the sweet Golden Retriever who a few weeks ago developed a fast growing eye tumor that makes every day a little bit tougher than it should be. Horus, the dog who despite it all, never once complains.
Several of you stepped forward to help, along with the kind and generous folks at Salty’s Pet Supply, Fang Pet & Garden Supply, and Three Paws Neighborhood Pet Supply. And thanks to each of you, surgery is set for next Tuesday. It’s a big surgery; the eye is a delicate place. Yet because of you, Horus has a chance, and that is all any of us can hope for.
In the midst of all she has going on, Horus’s Mom took the time to send a truly beautiful card, a card filled with deeply meaningful words. And right there along with her words, Horus signed his name too.
Moments like these.
And this is why we Pongo.
