My Green Heart

.
.
.
Just before my Deedee went into the hospital, I came across a puppy that had a green heart on his listing. He was a special needs boy, who had been kept in a crate with his littermates, in a garage that had no windows, for the first four months of his life!

He had no human contact to speak of, and when he was surrendered to the RI SPCA, he had "malformed legs", from his lack of using them. He is extremely fearful of humans.

Following three visits to the shelter, and Deedee's passing, we adopted this puppy.

We decided to name him Miller, after her maiden name that she was so proud of; Blue, after her eyes.

He is a wonderful, little guy, who once had a very hard life, but is lucky enough to have found a family that will enable him to enjoy the rest of his life, in a way that, perhaps, he could have never dreamed.

Welcome home Miller Blue...

Annie, So sorry to hear of DeeDee's passing. From following you, I knew that she was special to you, and that she had lived a good strong life. Now she'll be watching over you all from above. That was the kindest deed you did rescuing that poor puppy, and honoring your DeeDee by naming him Miller Blue. Hugs~Carol

Thank you all for your support, comments, and friendship.

Miller is doing very well. His litter mates have been adopted, and his mother is still awaiting her forever home. She is also special needs. Find her at RISPCA. :)
