Even though I’ve been completely swept up in the release of Diamond Geezer and all of the new work on my third book, I haven’t forgotten to stop and smell the roses! In fact, I met a lady during a walk with my dog, Dylan, a few days ago, and their story was so sweet that I decided to share it with you (and get a video of it!).
The lady explained that she was walking along one day when, all of a sudden, she saw a tiny bundle on the ground. When she took a closer look, she discovered it was a kitten! Unfortunately, though, this kitten was in rough shape. She was all skin and bones, and most of her fur had fallen out. She didn’t look like she had much time left.
Upon arriving home, the woman’s German Shepherd, Tasha, immediately took to this tiny kitten and begin licking her. That’s when the woman decided that she was going to rescue this kitten and make her a permanent part of the family!
Today, that tiny kitten is a strong and healthy 7 year-old. She’s best friends with Tasha, who’s now 9 years old. The woman decided to name the cat “Shadow” because she has followed Tasha anywhere and everywhere since that fateful day. Tasha doesn’t mind, though! The dog and the cat have become the very best of friends, and they do everything together — like eat, take naps, and even take walks.
Seeing Tasha and Shadow together just melted my heart! It’s obvious that Tasha and her owner were meant to stumble on that tiny kitten 7 years ago. To see the bond that has been built ever since is truly special.
It just goes to show you… best friends really are “furever”!
