Shido Dawg – What a mixture of feelings. We picked up the urn containing Bruno and Nero’s ashes the other day; along with the clay paw prints that were taken before they were cremated. Tears were shed – again. Later that night, Pete and I decided to permanently adopt a senior dog who had been dumped at the shelter and left to possibly live out his last few years not knowing if he was going to make it out of there alive. He was pulled from the shelter, fostered and after a trial period to make sure he would get along with our pups, we decided to give him a place to rest his bones and live out retirement.
Please meet Bushido “Shido Dawg” Lawrence. Bushido was already his given name and means “the way of the warrior” in Japanese. We shortened it to Shido and added Dawg as a tribute to Kikkin’ Wing who saved him under “My Fairy Dawg Mother’s Hound Rescue” umbrella. He’s on the far left and as you can see, fitting in just fine with some of his sisters. Bruno and Nero would’ve wanted us to give him a chance and we are so glad we did. Thank you Animal Rescue of the Rockies, Jenni Leigh, Jessica Wood, Kikkin’ Wing and everyone else who saved Bushido from the shelter. You’re helping us mend our broken hearts!
