Snickers' Journey: The Emails: Pt 3
Today is our annual Have a Heart Radiothon for the kids at the Niagara Penninsula Children's Centre!
This place holds a special place in my heart.
You see, soon after my mom was born..she got polio.
She went through surgeries her entire life.
She walked with a limp. Kids used to tease me about my "crippled mom". I used to fight back...and get into trouble for it.
My mom was just like these kids. She learned to walk at least 4 times in her life.
She used to say to me "Once you learn to walk again...there's just no saying 'I can't'.
I was raised never being able to say 'I can't'. I was always told ....just try.
I loved that little lady. Still do. I miss her.
She inspired me and taught me so much that I carry with me.
I guess it's no surprise that I was attracted to this little 3 legged dog named Snickers. He inspires me too.
If you lose a leg...you just keep walking...you have no choice. You have to ...just try.

Our upcoming wedding is a gift free/charity donation wedding.
We don't need anything. So we are asking all of our guests to either donate to the Niagara Penninsula Children's Centre or the Humane Society.
It just seems right...
Recently, Snickers' former family contacted me....
Here is part 3 of the emails....and the continuation of this little dogs story.
As dumb as he is,it seems that he's not a quitter.
I know exactly what you mean about things happening for a reason,he's much better there.
Our kitchen rules was that he is to be at entrance to kitchen during supper and not come in and doggy beg. It took a while before he learned...come to think of it,i dont think he ever learned lmao. Maybe injury/surgery jogged something in his brain.
I was the toughest on him but yet babied him! Daddy's boy. I would walk him,play with him in snow and my favorite,let him lay on my chest as i lay on sofa.
I'm glad I decided to contact you. I feel better and much and much more is off my mind.
Cannot wait to see him and telling kids about him and his new family.
I'm happy for you Gary.
I, too, would be full of worry, guilt and wonder if I had to give up a pet. I'm glad you feel better.
He's fine...and you'll see him soon.
This weekend might be okay! I'll check!
