Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Firecracker!


--by foodbankcarlisa, posted Mar 4, 2018
One morning when I was delivery groceries to a woman I noticed a puppy in her yard. He was suffering with a horrible case of mange. I asked her if he was her puppy and she said yes. I asked what was wrong with him...she told me he had mange and there was nothing she could do about it...for lack of money.

My heart broke as i watched him slowly trying to find some small amount of comfort. I asked her if she would mind if I tried to help him. I told her I would try to get something to help him. Instead of going to a regular store I went to the local animal doctor and told him what the dog looked like and he told me what I needed. When I returned to the woman's home I asked her if she would be sure to bath the puppy in the solution everyday until it was used up. I made her promise because I knew I could not come everyday to make sure it was done.

Two weeks later when I returned to the house...this energetic little red ball of energy met me at the door...it was him! all eager , tail wagging and happy. I cried and told the woman she did a great job. I asked her if I could call him Firecracker because his fur was so red and vibrant. She too with water in her eyes shook her head yes. Every time I returned to her home Firecracker always greeted me with a wag of his tail. That was the best $16 I ever spent.
