“No matter where I happen to be, I will always pause for a good back-scratching

More: Found along a stretch of desolate National Forest Land in Northern Michigan on a cold and snowy afternoon, Birdie entered my life shivering and emaciated. My sister-in-law, Becki, had succumbed to cancer that morning and I was traveling North to be with my brother and nephews. Becki knew that I’d been searching the internet for a rescue dog and I could not help feeling that she had something to do with bringing Birdie and me together. The family who’d had her for only 2 weeks (the previous owner saw her picture online from the Humane Society and called them) said they did not want her as she was destructive and highly anxious. They informed the HS to “warn” adoptive parents of her difficult nature. Long story short, she is amazing and loved by everyone who meets her. Loves children, is well-behaved and we run, hike, travel, kayak, snowshoe, skijor and camp together. I feel like I won the lottery! If Birdie was able, she would say the same🥰.
