Darla’s Journey, An Update
Ms. Karen Davison’s poignant quote summarizes our Darla’s journey:
“Saving one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog, the world will change forever.”
In only three month’s time, Darla has made the transformation from an abused and suffering dog to one that has found healing, love and happiness. For those of you who are not familiar with pit mix Darla, she came to Angel Ridge from an impoverished shelter in December with her ears brutally cut off, open sores around her neck, a malignant tumor and heartworm disease. This is a brief update and a heartfelt thank you to everyone who supported Darla’ s journey with financial contributions, needed supplies and prayers.
Darla was adopted by Tim, and his daughter, Kaylee, a blind, special needs child. Darla is now
Kaylee‘s BFF and quite the support dog, sensing Kaylee‘s needs and moods and responding to help her. Darla has inched her way into Tim’s heart, too, and she is charming everyone that she meets. As a result, Tim has made many new friends, including the mail carrier, allof the customers at his barber shop, and people in all of the places that he visits with Darla.
Darla has had her first heartworm injection. She will be tested soon to determine if she still has the disease. If she does, she will get another injection. Her tumor has been removed, and the sores on her body have healed.
Darla is one amazing angel, an angel who can help the people in her life to heal and be happy. I believe that Darla has proven that Ms. Davison’s quote should go on to say:
“And for the humans who love that dog, their world will change forever, too.”
Thank you and God Bless,
