Loretta's happy ending

As many of you know, I volunteer for transport to help give dogs second chances. Ocasionally, I get to do the last leg; and see the pup meet their new Mum, or Dad. Sunday, I decided to drive two legs, as I really wanted that feel good moment. Miss Loretta the Lab was quite the polite passenger, just requiring a few ear rubs. When we got to our meeting place, the whole family came. Miss Loretta was beside herself when she realized she now had kids! She licked them to death, as I wiped away tears of joy. Thought I'd share a picture of Loretta, and her new family!

What a good feeling for you to be able to meet the family Loretta went to! And as another poster so rightly put it -- a happy ending and happy new beginning.

Thank you for everything you do to help dogs get to their new families.

Seeing Loretta licking the kids in her new family must have been priceless. I know it's a moment that is going to stay with you for a very long time.

Wonderful story with a great happy ending.

Thank you for sharing A photo is worth a thousand words, isn't it.... My name is on the 'volunteer list" here on GRF for help with driving, but please remember that I am here on the southside of metro Charlotte area and if you ever need help with transport, I would be happy to pitch in. A thousand blessings to you for all you do.
Kristy
