Basil and La Coco and their old owner...

October 13, 2019 13:18
Early in the morning, the bell rang and when we opened the gate, an old man stood there,,, over 80 years old, with his two dogs next to him... All 3 looked hopefull at us... The old man was removed from his home because of his small retirement income and he had to go to a nursing home, where his 2 dogs were not welcome.. They had told him to get rid of them as soon as possible... The tears rolled over his cheeks... they didn't have a chip or vaccinations, but they were his soul, his heart, his everything... he couldn't speak, his whole fragile body told history, what he had been through in his past life...
The dogs were not very well taken care of but the old man was not able to so anymore,... He had a difficult time walking and we could see that he was not doing well. He told us that his 2 little buddies have been with him since they were puppies and this was all the family he had left... We promised him to take good care of them, and he noted.. The tears were over his cheeks again while he slowly walked away... Step by step, we looked at him, like his 2 doggies... They kept staring at him until we could no longer see him... Also, our tears rolled over our cheeks... God, how this world can be cruel... but it is the harsh reality... Their owner is now somewhere else, thinking about the, and his past life, but at the end of his life, these 2 dogs were his only family...
The first few days Basil and La Coco had a hard time... The goodbye of their owner was difficult for them... Now they look at us, full of hope if we can make it up... But they haven't eaten for days or looked around them, they barely lived... they miss their olf owner who always stood up for them until he could no longer do that anymore...
Life can be tough for some people and easy for others... But these worlds, who we were trusted with by the 80-year-old man, we would like to complete them happy for them... Basil was so attached to one of his carers that she adopted him but La Coco still waits for a good home.. Who can help? Who will give her this chance?
