We want to share with you this heart-rending story of resilience. It was so hard because she was so close to making it to the other side. We didn’t have any walls up emotionally – we knew she had a very small chance of surviving, but we poured all of our love into her, just hoping she could make it.
The initial call came in that there was a dog who desperately needed help. When we arrived, we found a skeleton of a dog laying in water and trash nearby, barely alive. She dragged herself to sit up and trembled. She was so gaunt and had a damp stare, striving to death. She seemed out of reach by a car and left paralyzed. She dragged herself so much out of here by the dam and heaved herself out of the water. She knew she felt love. She heard so much love.
But on the third day, she crashed. She cried in her fur and held her paws when she crossed over. Fly high, Halia. We are so sorry this happened to you. 💔
We’re so sorry to tell you this heartbreaking sad story today, but Halia was important. She deserved to be loved, honored, and remembered. Thank you for bearing witness to her sweet little face.
