Lacey’s pet portrait arrived a day late…but she is now hanging in the family tree.
The client and I knew the postal service in both countries was swamped with holiday parcels. We kept our fingers crossed the ornament would reach its destination around Christmas. I am relieved to know that the parcel arrived yesterday, December 26.
So here is Lacey, smiling happily in the family tree where she should have been on Christmas Day.
If you love pets, you will understand this story.
The client writes that they were heartbroken when they lost their Golden Retriever, Angel, and immediately started searching for another dog similar to Angel.
Lacey’s picture was on Sirius Star Rescue. She was five months old and had been “left chained up when her owner was sent to Afghanistan. She has a scar on her leg from the chain and suffers from separation anxiety.”
The client really wanted to adopt this beautiful dog because she looked very much like Angel. However, many people were interested and so there was a strict process that had to be followed in order to adopt her.
The days turned into weeks and the family wasn’t sure they would be chosen so they adopted another dog, Max, who was at a kill shelter in Virginia.
In time, the family welcomed Lacey and both Max and Lacey grew up together. They are both turning 13 in January and are a “blessing” for the family.
