Today is Luke's 9th birthday! And since he is the biggest gift to us, I would like to share his story!
I saw little Luke on Petfinder.com. He had been kicked, beaten and abused for all of his young life, and at age 2 found himself at a local shelter, with a hernia, emergency surgery, a broken hip, and a broken spirit! We went to meet him, touched by his sad story and his sweet face on the shelters website.
It was love at first sight! We signed his adoption papers, but had to leave him overnight to get neutered.
On the way home, we went "pet supply shopping" for the first time. We were thrilled picking out everything our new little man was going to need. From leash and collar, over food bowls and toys, to treats, blankets, and a crate..just in case.
Overnight our our home transformed into Luke's haven and sanctuary, and we couldn't wait to pick him up the following day!
We brought Luke home on a gorgeous afternoon in march 2007. A day that we will never forget!
With a lot of love, patience, kindness and trust, Luke has blossomed into a sweet, gentle, fun, kind and marvelous little gentleman!
He is still shy an skittish around strangers, and afraid of children. But with us and our friends he knows, he is the biggest love, kindest soul and most marvelous little character.
And when he strolls down the sidewalk, curious and proud, glancing at us with his soft, sweet eyes. Then we know, that "his spirit is no linger broken", and we are so thankful he came into our life!
Happy Birthday Luke! You will always be our little Wonder Dog, and the best thing, that ever happened to us!
TLC will always just have that one meaning to us...."Tender, Luke and Care". We love you!
