    Right ON! My sweet dog was left in a taped up cardboard box on the side of a highway on Barbados after just having puppies. Three years later – I would still slap the assh*le and thank him all at the same time. She is a gift that reminds me every day that "we" are probably not God's best work 🙂 Diesel is a lucky boy!

    Way to go! I have always said it is better to adopt a dog from the pound than spend a bunch of money on some fancy schmancy dog with papers! Good for you!

    My Shenzi showed up 7 years ago, a 4 month old, starving, naked mess. I thought she had a skin disease but it turned out she is half Chinese Crested. I advertised her in lost & found plus posters all around the neighborhood. Not 1 phone call. She is the best teacher I have ever had. Bless you & your family's ever loving hearts!

    Giving up a dog or leaving it out in the open to be found – are you kidding me – they want their dog to be somewhere other than with them. I would thank the people who abandoned our dog. Thank them for their decision to do something better and it probably wouldn't be how any of the rest of us would do it – but nevertheless, the dogs get a new and better place to call home and we get that unconditional dog love 🙂

    A great story! Diesel got the better ending to the story when he found you! Good on you for taking him in and giving him a loving home to flourish! Cheers, B
