Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Dogs and Cats, Oh My

I haven’t been on here in forever but I just needed to share this with you.

Last winter we had to put our two geriatric dogs to sleep. The house felt so empty but we weren’t ready for a new dog. Instead, we got two cats. Then a few weeks ago one of our cats never came back home and the house was now way too lifeless. My husband, who’s a disabled vet with PTSD and other issues, saw a dog up for adoption at a local shelter. The description read, “good with cats.” So we made an appointment to meet her. It turned out that she came from an abusive home and was especially afraid of men. Her trainer had worked with her all year to get her to a point where she was even adoptable. After an hour with the trainer, we got to meet her. It was love at first sight and she even let my hubby pet her.

Long story short we took her home. She’s skittish and shy but is warming up to her new pack of humans and felines.

That night we also realized that we adopted her exactly 8 years after our Husky died. Her name is karma.

All week we’ve been walking around the house and property constantly saying “good karma” to reassure her. It makes me smile and so I just really felt like sharing it with you
