12/27/11: This just in. Muddy’s adoption fell through. He is up for adoption via Let’s Adopt Global. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you can provide Muddy a home and meet the adoption criteria.
He was old. He was cold. He was emaciated. He looked beat and resigned. Here was a dog really down on his luck. And all he had to live in was an old cabinet stuck behind an apartment complex somewhere in Bulgaria. He was known as The Dog in the Cabinet.
When an email plea regarding his condition showed up in Viktor Larkhill’s email (Let’s Adopt Global) a week ago, the only Holiday preparations that went forward was getting Muddy out of the cabinet and into a warm place for Christmas. His team assisted rescuers and took Muddy to their clinic for a checkup. He was dehydrated, malnourished, and had a massive ear infection. A chipin was started to pay for Muddy’s hospital bills and his plane fare to a new home in Germany. Once the plea for Muddy hit Facebook, someone offered him a home.
The chipin has been fulfilled and Muddy will be flying to a new home in Germany this December 27th. But Let’s Adopt Global still wanted a Christmas for Muddy. So, on Christmas, his kennel in the clinic was decorated, he got pets and hugs, and a lot of good food.
And I’m sure there was a squeaky toy or two tucked into his kennel by the end of the party.
I have no clever words to add. Read his story, and view his pictures. The best words to describe Muddy’s Christmas will come directly from your heart.
I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do. ~Edward Everett Hale
