My PG 101 Beatles Song Title Theme Entry

While hiking on a trail with her friends (6 days ago), my daughter found this abandoned, Siberian Husky and her sibling. Both were rescued. Rebecca brought home the female puppy, took her to the vet, for care. She named her Zelda. She takes her new companion with her everywhere.

I can hardly imagine pups like this abandoned as they were. So glad they were rescued. Sweetheart of a pup and sweetheart of a shot, Donna.

Thanks for teaching your daughter "Love" Happy Mother's Day, Donna. This photo is more precious and tells the story more than a 1,000 words would.

Zelda is a lucky dog :-) Who could ever abandon such a sweet little puppy? Glad it all worked out so nicely, and Zelda has a good home! Sweet picture that your daughter will have to remember the beginnings of their love affair :-)
