It was the night before the blizzard in February of 2003 in Baltimore, Maryland. Zoe had been left outside the entire day prior to the blizzard. It was freezing! There was snow on the ground from a previous storm. She was incredibly thin, you could see her ribs, and it was obvious that she was mal-nourished. Zoe was about 3 months old. She was very friendly, never barked or growled at us. All she wanted was to be loved and inside where it was warm, so I decided to take her home.
The next day, Zoe, would not go outside unless someone went with her. Thankfully, it didn’t take long for us to gain her trust. After she realized we would not leave her outside, Zoe absolutely LOVED playing in the snow!
Zoe was part of our family for 10 wonder years. She was a great dog. Sadly, we had to say goodbye to her back in May. I miss her every day. I even miss her 66lbs of dead weight sleeping on my legs and using my feet as her pillow :p.
