My husband and I had relocated to AB end of August 2010 and were on a drive to explore the countryside. We had just left a small town called Breton and were heading in the direction of another--Leduc, when I hollered at my husband, OMG-There's a kitten on the side of the road!He did a U turn and I cried, Oh no. It;s gone! Immediately thinking he/she may have been hit --busy busy highway. My husband yells, No!There he is! And sure enough that wee bit of fur had successfully crossed the road! He hissed and patty caked me when I went in to the ditch to pick him up but soon settled along side our dog Peppy. The compassion our dog showed Freeway touched us deeply. We learned from the vet Freeway had been thrown from a moving vehicle window hence his paw pad shaved almost off, puss filled eye and more...Freeway is now 3 and a loving brother to Peppy, our 14 yr old Malamute/Poodle Cross and, their new 6 toed on all fours sister Sally, a Buy & Sell treasure-someone giving away kittens. We love our fur kids - they teach us daily about acceptance, love, tolerance, compassion and they love us-trust us. They also love each other.
