Recovering from Lola
It is hard to believe the hole a 16lb dog can leave behind. Lola was the kind of dog that could affect most anyone. She even blind and deaf could touch someone so much that they would look for us to say hi. I have been stopped to take a picture. Not of us but her. She was and I like to believe is a special soul. I am not sure what happens after this life but I hope there is a special prize for perfect little creatures like her. All the chicken she can eat, her fav, and some angel to hold her while she sleeps is exactly what she deserves. I hope that someday when I go we will meet up again. That is how much Lola means to me.
lola has been an amazing friend. She even though blind learned a new home never seeing it. She was able to get around the spot we walked everyday during my lunch break. It was amazing how many people would stop and talk and pet her. I think she was more social than me. She drew me out of my shell. I loved that dog. I couldn't have asked for a better companion. I will tell her stories as they come back to me. Truely an inspirational creature.
I found Lola on the Pug Rescue of Sacramento website and it was love at first site. Her big bug eyes and smashed nose were all I noticed from her profile picture. I missed the part about her ears being eaten around the edges by flies, she had a raging bladder infection and she had had puppies recently, somewhere. She was picked up off the streets of Hayward, Ca and had been there for no one knows how long. She was a bag of bones when I saw her at the foster home. Although her attitude said it all. She was one tough chick. Even being stinky and pretty nasty looking I couldn't help bringing her home. Over time and a lot of attention she turned out to be a very healthy, loving, loyal companion.
