Earlier this week, I received a Wednesdog submission from a guy named Bill without much of an explanation as to who the dogs were and their breeds. I posted it here.
I rec’d a followup email today, and I wanted to give you more information about the dogs and about Bill.
This followup is so worth posting, and I’m going to let Bill tell you why in his own words.
Rocket(L) is a 3 yo Tennessee Brindle coonhound and Kebe (R) is a 5 yo Walker coonhound. I hunt them both. They love chasing furry little creatures. Kebe climbs trees chasing squirrels. I got Kebe from the spca. I was hunting Kebe and he found Rocket abandoned in a cardboard box where we were hunting. I was gonna take Rocket to the shelter the next day…lol. That day has never come. They are so close its amazing. I was getting chemo. I would be depressed and cry. Both of them would lick the tears from my eyes. They would make me get out and walk them. They wouldn’t let me isolate myself. One of them was always with me. If one went to eat or sleep the other was always there with me. I was never alone. They really saved my life. They kept me sane.
Our hearts and hopes go out to Bill. Thanks for this touching submission!
