    She found me!!

    I lost my old dog back in the fall and could not afford to get another. I was thinking and had seen that even some "rescue"-ing dogs were over $100 or more. After reading this wonderful post, I decided to actually look for an older female. Oregon Humane society has a wonderful program where dogs over 6yrs are about $85 and as another older female, my discount was $50!!!!

    And so Lyla found me! She knew I needed her and I'm just so thrilled to hear a tail "whap" the floor again! I'll be forever grateful to Rebecca of burchquilts for her post! Will send a copy to the humane society.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Beautiful ending to your story. Rescue dogs that I foster are free. You really have to do a lot of investigating to find the right place. I am glad you and Lydia found each other!

    I now have goosebumps all over and tears in my eyes of happiness.....The post that made you go looking for your furbaby made me sad (because I would like to rescue ALL animals - DH says NO WAY) but your post has put such a beautiful finish to it. Thank you for posting -

    Thank you all so much!! Have to laugh at what her previous owners had to say about her, mostly very good, but doesn't like a lot of fussing over her? May not be good with children? Hah! My DGS came over to meet her and used Cesar Milans "no touch, no talk, no eye-contact" but he just slid down the wall until he was sitting on the floor. Lyla came over, sniffed him, gave him the tipped-head question look, and lay down with her head in his lap!
    Yep, she's got real problems!! LOL Can't tell you how my eyes welled up when I first heard her tail "whap" the floor! Just like Clyde! (My DD 2 are both bobbed tails)

    So thanks for helping me enjoy her even farther!

    This is a win win situation. I'm so glad for you and Lyla. My own fur baby is a rescue also, he has brought me so much happiness and laughter, I wish the same for you.
    Lord, please keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth.

    So happy you adopted a rescue, we have had many dogs through the years and every one of them were rescues. Each of them has a special place in my heart.

    Kitsie! I'm NOT a crier! Y'all KNOW I'm NOT a crier! And now you've got me crying like a baby! I cannot take any credit for wonderful, beautiful Lyla coming into your life (BTW... had Leo been a female, we were going to name him Lyla, too... GMTA!). It was destiny & I was a mere conduit, via Leo via the rescue group I got him from. It was just meant to be. I am so, so, so happy for the both of you! She's so beautiful & I know she'll have a wonderful, loving forever home with you. I couldn't be happier! Hugs her for Leo & I, OK? And keep us all posted on her journey with you!

    She is just beautiful! My last 3 dogs were all rescues and my cat was a stray baby in the park. They bring such joy and I am glad you have each other!
