I know it's not Friday, but Momma is going out of town this weekend and I had a very special story to share with y'all! This is Firenze.
Isn't he a handsome guy?? He was adopted from LBR back in 2010. A few years later, he added a brother, Major.
These two guys are the BESTEST bros. They love each other so much and can't stand to be apart. Look at them holding paws!
Well, a few weeks ago LBR got a call from another rescue in the area. Firenze and Major were with them instead of their family! WTH?!?! Apparently their "parents" moved into a new house and decided that they didn't want to risk scratching their new hardwood floors. So they just dumped the dogs!! And not even contacting us to take Firenze back, like they promise they will when they sign our adoption contract. We're just lucky the other rescue called us. Of course, we immediately took them back into an LBR foster home.
Firenze and Major were heartbroken, but they were mostly worried that they weren't going to be able to stay together. Senior dogs are harder to adopt out anyway, but two together? That would take a miracle. But they told us that they HAD to stay together because their brother was all they had left in the world.
So LBR volunteers worked and worked and worked. And THEN . . . we found the most SPECIAL adoption application. One that said they were interested in Firenze and Major . . . and that added "we have new wood floors, but we don't care about scratches! Scratches add character!"
So Firenze and Major went to meet these pawesome applicants, and it was LOVE at FURST SIGHT!! They were thrilled to run and play with their new mom and dad, AND they hit it off grreat with a whole NEW brother, LBR alum Clue! OMD, we couldn't have designed a better home for them! Now they get to live out their lives in a home that loves them so very very much, that cares more about THEM that stupid stuff like FLOORS. And most impawtantly, they get to live out their lives TOGETHER!! Is there anything better?
Congrrats to Ray, Michelle, Clue, Firenze, and Major! You ALL hit the jackpot!!!
