Lonely Without Phoenix
We moved to Fishers, Indiana in 2004 after having lived in Florida for 20 years. That first winter was a tough one. My only son was attending college in Tampa, Florida, and my husband was traveling a lot for his job. I was terribly lonely.
Knowing I wouldn’t make it another winter without something new in my life to occupy my time and my mind, I happened on a dog rescue website and was looking at the dogs listed. Then, I saw her beautiful face! Her name was Phoenix and she’d been given up by the family who’d had her since she was a puppy. I knew this was the solution to my loneliness, so I contacted the rescue organization.
After several weeks, one home assessment visit and a visit from Phoenix and her foster mom, she was finally ours!
Six and one-half years later, Phoenix and I are growing old together. She is the love of our lives!
