A little over five years ago on another trip to present in Las Vegas I got a call from home…

‘What time does your flight get in?’ – ‘You need to go by Morris Animal Refuge and ask to see the Westy’ –

Chuck had been to the pet store and seen a Morris Animal Refuge pet rescue booth and fallen in love with a West Highland Terrier…

She was older (about 12), had lived her life in  a puppy mill as a breeding dog and had been shaved down so her ears looked HUGE – nothing in her favor she had been there over a month and would have surely been put down..

But she was a very gentle loving dog who gave kisses all the time… and she had found a home.

Saphi was spoiled rotten, our mantra was ” We want her to have a better life than she had the first 12′

During my trip to Vegas this week she took ill and was diagnosed with congestive heart failure, was started on medicine to drain the fluid from her chest….

Yesterday morning her tiny little heart gave out, we were both with her and she wasn’t in any pain…

I’d like to think we gave her a much better life than she had…

If you are looking for a charity to make a donation instead of a wedding favor please consider Morris Animal Refuge and the amazing work they do.

PLEASE, if you are looking for a pet, consider adopting an older dog….

You’ll love their kisses…
