“One night Jojo jumped off the bed and his legs gave out from under him.

I knew he was in distress because he was panting heavily and he couldn’t walk.

I rushed him to the Animal Hospital, Blue Pearl, and they operated on his spine the next morning.

It took four to five months for him to heal, and he is as recovered as he will ever be.

He can run and fetch, climb up on rocks, and ride on the bike.

He can’t jump off of anything, play tug of war, and he can’t wrestle.”

“My husband always wanted a cat and I am allergic, so we agreed to get a dog.

I was not an animal person, before Babka.

We had just started looking and went to Bide-A-Wee Rescue.

Initially, we wanted a one year old dog.

We thought an older dog, (older than a puppy), would be easier for first time dog owners.

The other thing is I was afraid of a nipping puppy.”

Scout, the Labrador Retriever that brought joy to a family (part 7)

“After having four kids, with one already out the door, getting Scout is like having a new two year old.

She has added a new layer to our nuclear family.

We have met new people and made new friends through having Scout.

She has introduced us to an entire subculture.”
