From right to left: First Horace came, then Sparkplug, then Louie -- all from the same shelter in New Martinsville, WV: Wetzel County Animal Shelter. Now they are fast friends. And they owe it all to a little old dog named Sparky who brought this shelter to my attention. The day Sparky died, Horace came into the shelter. And the day we celebrated a holiday of what would have been Sparky's one year anniversary in a home, now in its fourth inception as an annual SPARK DAY holiday, Sparkplug came into the shelter and was given his name in Sparky's honor. Unwanted hound dogs. So many are out there. Louie came in a little over a year ago -- and the minute I saw him, I thought he had to be related to my WV Boys. Well, in just a short two weeks he made his way to me too via the doggy underground railroad that brought him up north. Now the three WV Boys are happy pals. And another Spark Day is just around the corner! We'll all be celebrating the Spark of Life that was coaxed back from a dying ember in Sparky to light many torches in many states. Lots of people will be celebrating on May 16th. Maybe you'd like to join in the fun!
