My canine buddy Cabo and I know the meaning of true friendship. When we were found at a Circle K, he had a chain collar embedded in his neck and although I couldn’t get it out, I kept licking that site, trying to help. When a veterinarian did remove the chain, we were both relieved! We’re 2-year-old Shepherd/Heeler mix males; I’m black and white, about 46 pounds, and these days each of us is having fun with our new people friends—some of whom teach us helpful dog lessons. Oh, we may bark at strangers at first, but we welcome friendly visitors—sometimes with dog kisses and invitations to play! Won’t you come see? Perhaps we can share the gift of loyalty, a feel-good thing that can last forever and make us all happy!
