A Prayer for the Lucky Puppies of Denham Springs, Louisiana

Two days ago my wife Marylyn traded email with our friend Robin, a professional dog groomer in Denham Springs, LA, a short distance from Baton Rouge. She was loading the crated dogs at the Lucky Puppy Rescue for the evacuation from the path of Hurricane Gustav.

We have a warm place in our hearts for Robin, her family and the Lucky Puppy Rescue. We adopted one of our two dogs, now called Froggy, then called Duke, through this Shelter a little over a year ago. Marylyn had been looking for a rescue dog (all of our dogs over 35 years have been rescued) and found a picture of Duke posted on the internet.

No, our dog was not rescued from Katrina. But had it not been for the kindness and devotion of Robin and her family, we would have never been able to adopt a wonderful dog. Now, she is about the business of saving other dogs in every meaning of the word. We are grateful that there are deeply devoted people in the world like Robin. We hope and pray that Robin, her family and every one of their dogs, are safe and dry tonight and that they will soon be safe at home.
