Congratulations to Kingston, the winner of our Pet Days of Summer Portrait Giveaway. We look forward to sharing Kingston’s portrait with you later this year. Thank you to everyone who entered and all who voted!
We also wanted to let you know a little more about Kingston Another Lucky Dog, the beautiful boy who won our portrait contest. We ran a similar contest a couple of years ago and through that met the most wonderful group of caring people who rescued a starving, neglected dog Lucky The Dog. Lucky is living today happy, healthy and loved. This same wonderful group also rescued Kingston. Sadly Kingston has gone to the bridge but he knew true love and happiness in is final days. From Kingston’s last will:
“The last item in my will, my last possession, is the love I leave behind. Please bestow it on the pets abandoned without hope or kindness.
Today, I am officially retired at the bridge. I have loved all my people who have been with me in recovery and through death. Mom may write a book or not, Stick will continue to grow and all of you wonderful people will continue to be kind and understand the strength of being kind. It is not a weakness. My Facebook page will remain for visitors and memories, but it is time to thank all of you for following. It has been such an honor to have you by my side, from abuse and neglect, degenerative myelopathy, struggles at the end, and leaving. I am a blessed dog. Abandoned and starving and then having such wonderful encouragement. I remember trying to find food and water and being so sick, and then at the end, I did not want to go, but my body said otherwise. I will see all of you later, of that have no doubt. Death is a burden and a blessing. It eclipses all day to day events, and then once understood, is just anticipation of meeting again. I love each and everyone of you. Until later, <3 Kingston at the Bridge”
