That video was one of my favourite yet of Roo. Her story of recovery continues to amaze me. What a resilient soul she has.

not a dry eye in this house tonight.
Our odyssey with Gracie was similar but not as horrific.
God bless Roo and all those like her.

I just posted some video updates on Always51's thread is all.

The credit goes to Always51 who, luckily for us, started this thread last July. I'm just adding updates. I didn't know about Roo until Always51 kindly started this thread. It was my lucky night coming across it, that's for sure. Brian's early posts that Always51 linked were on a blog he's no longer with. When that happened, and I hope Always51 didn't mind, I searched for where he went. It's my sincere pleasure to add updates.

Roo and Brian's story is such an inspirational one, isn't it? It enriches my life as I browse Brian and Roo's Facebook page (linked a few times above) read up on her progress, watch her blossom, and bask in the inspiration of humanity surrounding her cheering them both on. Strangers with a common love for Roo. Heartwarming.

Thank you Always51. You gave some of us an early Christmas gift last July by introducing us to Roo.

Brian and Roo are moving to Colorado tomorrow. Incredibly loud and incessant hunter's gunfire in every direction where they'd moved to in Vermont. The landlord promised it was peace and quiet there. Not so. At all.

The Dog in the Clouds | Indiegogo

He posted this pic of Roo spotting a chipmunk coming out of the leaves:



BRIAN:

Hi Everybody -

This little chipmunk popped out of the fallen leaves right in front of Roo. Both of them were shocked. Roo did a play bow - I didn't get a picture because I was on my way to interfering - and when the chipmunk scrambled, Roo picked him up. I got her to let go before anything happened. She was for that moment so proud of herself. She didn't seem to hold it against me that I made her let her new toy go.
