Your Pet's Rescue Story
Dog - My Best Friend Rescue Red
Luda is a sort of a different kind of rescue dog, in that he rescued me. My girlfriend has had him for almost 15 years, since he was a wee pup fathered by her brother's dog; I met him almost six years ago.
I had never really had a dog before I met Luda, at least not one that I could call my own. The first couple of years, while I dated his Mom, we got along pretty well and got to know each other extensively on some rather long walks. He is everything I had ever wanted in a best friend and I really to his Mom, so I've got that going for me.
After having a sudden heart attack the day after my 29th birthday, I was hospitalized for three weeks and not in the greatest spirits coming home. Luda seemed to know when I was in pain and when I just needed a cuddle and was always with me. He helped me to keep going on the tough days and made my smile wider on the better days.
Over the last five plus years, especially the last two and a half, Luda and I have become the best of friends. His fur has grayed a little more since those first days but he's still got a little giddy up in those steps. He is the most loving, cute, and wise old man - both sides of the Mississippi. Please help me show my admiration and affection for my furry best friend by considering him for this honor.
