Thursday Spotlight – Laura Kidd


A bit of background on our juggle (pug/beagle) Maisy:
We adopted her from the spca in August 2011 when she was 8 months old and her name in there was Daisy…she had been abandoned, the woman at the spca said they figured the owners moved and left her or dropped her off on the other side of town and took off :(…Maisy had a fracture in her front leg, half her right ear had been torn off, she was severely malnourished and dehydrated. As soon as we saw her we knew she was ours! Even then she was amazingly affectionate and  happy…we can’t imagine life without her now!

*Perspective on Adopting a Rescue: it’s the only way to go! we are so blessed to have this amazing dog who brings an enormous amount of joy to our whole family everyday…i would give Maisy years off of my life if it meant we could have her for longer
