Here’s a wonderful story from Life With Dogs, about a dog named Mira who was dropped off at an open access shelter. Her owner simply was unable to care for her, and shelter workers were actually glad that he brought the dog in instead of abandoning her in the streets. But Mira’s cries as her beloved dad walked away tore at the heartstrings of everyone there:
As Mira watched her dad walk away, she started to whimper. Once he made it outside, she began to cry for him. Mira did everything that she could to get out the door to be reunited with her dad and her stress level quickly went through the roof… she just cried and cried.
But as the photo above suggests, there is a happy ending to this story. . .
