The dog story that broke my heart

Crossroads Pet Resort--located in Stanton, California--is where my 2 German shepherds board when we go out of town. I always hate boarding my dogs because I miss them so much. When I'm gone, I think about them all the time and can't wait to get back, so I can take them home.

Home. My home. Their home.

That isn't what happened to Midnight, the 11-month-old husky mix in the photo above.

His owners took him to Crossroads Pet Resort and left him there. They never came back for him.

I almost burst into tears when I got the e-mail last night from Crossroads. The folks at the resort are hoping to find a forever home for this furry guy, because his original owners never bothered to come back and take him home. Midnight had a home. He had people who loved him. And then they just changed their mind. That kind of animal-ownership really bothers me. But I won't get on a rant.

Although I really want to.

The reason I'm posting this is because, maybe, you live in Southern California and, maybe, you would love to give an abandoned dog another chance.

Here is the contact information for the pet resort:
Crossroads Pet Resort
10832 Knott Avenue
Stanton, CA 90680

I hope Midnight finds a forever home really soon. And I hope his new parents never do what his old parents did.


  1. God Bless you for caring, Merrie. I don't understand people who can do that either but thankfully they left him where he would be cared for rather than dumping him on the side of a road somewhere. I hope they find a forever home for him where he'll be truly loved and appreciated as he should be. Sometimes I think folks don't really understand the sacrifice that our dogs and cats give for us, they stay with us no matter how they are treated when they could be running free in the wild instead. They truly are our best friends. <3

  2. Amy, Thanks, sweetie! I totally agree. I'm glad he's in a safe place and that his owners didn't just abandon him in a park. Animals are so loving--in fact, my German shepherd is standing right beside me while I type this. My dogs and my cat love me whether I'm a failure or a success, whether I'm dressed up or wearing sweats. God did a wonderful thing when he created the animals. =)
