More: PICCOLO RESCUED ME WHEN I TOOK HIM HOME FROM A SHELTER IN PLYMOUTH. I WAS IN A DARK PLACE AND SO WAS HE. HE HAD TO Hve surgery for Cancer before I could bring him home. Since then 5vyears ago Piccolo has survived 4 cancer surgeries. He is the bravest little dog you ever want to meet. He gave me courage and strength to be able to deal with my own problems. It's funny, when I took him home the first thing I said to him was, Piccolo, it's you and me against the world. How true.
