  •  As the papa of three rescue dogs and one (15+ / 0-)

    rescue cat, I know all about the time it takes to earn the trust and love of an abused and/or neglected animal.  We've been dealing with what you've been going through for a few years now, wondering if every lapse and twitch will be the last for our two giant schnauzers, sisters and litter mates, who are somewhere between 14 and 15 years old.  Through it all, the love and trust keep deepening, as does the sense of responsibility I feel, and the dread of what is to come.

    But when I sit with my kids, hold them close, sleep with them at night, everything is right with the world, and I have enough good memories for whatever the future holds.

    I hope your good memories of Oscar Meyer give you comfort in the days and weeks ahead.
