We just introduced you to Mickey, one of our resident seniors, a few months ago. Today, we sadly share that our little bow-legged Wire-wanna be has left us.
Mickey was the official greeter at the Rescue for both canines and humans alike. And every evening, no matter how late, he would totter out to greet Ruth and Tom when they came home. Ruth said he reminded her of of an aging football line backer.
Mickey never asked for much. And we don't think he noticed that he wasn't a Wire... he may have been happy that he was misidentified! We could not turn our backs on a brave little guy who had several cancerous lesions removed at the shelter and who was so forgiving of past neglect. He kept the canine youngsters in line and appreciated a pat on the head. And he loved his chow!
A few nights ago, after a spa day, he finished up dinner with his usual enthusiasm but stayed out longer than usual, alone, on the dog bed outside, looking up at the stars. Despite his hardy appetite, and because of his recent surgery for recurrent cancer, Ruth scheduled him to be checked by the vet in the morning. But morning brought the sad discovery that Mickey would no longer be there to greet his Rescue family.
Mickey said goodbye on his own terms--after a delicious dinner and time gazing toward the heavens....We know there were many, many ATRA angels waiting, and they made sure that this time, it was sweet, unassuming Mickey who received the warmest of greetings when he arrived to join them. It was his turn.
We will miss you at the gate and gazing through the window, greeting us,
Mickey! But keep watching over us!...
Another senior Wire Fox Terrier has a forever home! Hooray! The happy ending sulfa allergy and azithromycin we had hoped would be in Hudson's future came true!
Soon after seeing yesterday's post on Hudson, Kimberly Klink called Living Free and made an appointment to see him the next day. She and her husband, Bob met Hudson and fell in love. So did Hudson!
Hudson is going home!
We thank the Klinks for seeing beyond Hudson's age and realizing he has lots of life and love still to give! We can all celebrate that thanks to them, this handsome, resilient, brave, happy Wire
will have love and a wonderful life ahead!...
Please join us in wishing Ruth Millington, the founder and leader of Abandoned Terrier Rescue Association a very happy birthday! For over 30 years, Ruth has rescued, rehomed and given sanctuary to countless terriers, mixes and barnyard animals. Seldom, if ever without a smile, Ruth has greeted hundreds of canine newcomers over the years, no matter what their condition, with, "Oh how CUUUUUUTE!" Before there were many, if any, specific terrier breed rescues, there was Ruth and Abandoned Terrier Rescue (hence the generic name that continues to this day!) Always willing to help even at great personal sacrifice, Ruth exemplifies what rescue is all about: the dogs! That is why you see lots of dogs but little of Ruth on our Facebook page! Thank you, Ruth! Many, many good wishes and please do not be too upset with this tribute!...
