I never would have thought of myself as a dog lover until now.  I read Rescuing Sprite and was very touched by Mark\’s story.  I never understood the bond between dogs and their owners because I never had a dog.  A few months after I read Rescuing Sprite, my husband and I were blessed with a dog of our own.  He followed us home one day when we were on a walk.  I played with him for a few minutes outside of my house.  At the time, we thought he belonged to someone.  He had a collar on, but no tag and no microchip.

The next morning when I went outside to go jogging, he ran into my garage.  Then, he followed me while I ran.  I could tell that he was lost (or let go) because he went up to the front door of every house to see if it was his.  I felt so sad for him because he was all alone.  I fell in love with this dog right away.  He is the sweetest, friendliest dog I\’ve ever known!  A neighbor called the shelter and they came and picked him up.  We checked with the shelter everyday, but no one claimed him.  There were no signs posted for him in our neighborhood.  We ended up adopting him from the shelter.  I never thought I would be a dog owner, but there is something so special about this dog.  We named him \”Lucky\”.  The vet estimated his age as 1 1/2 – 2 years old.  He is a cavalier spaniel mix.  He has brought so much joy and love into our home.  He is truly a gift from God.
