I have watched this video literally dozens of times and each and every time I am moved just as much as the first time I watched it. This has to be the most heartbreaking and then heartwarming video I have ever seen.

Fiona is the reason why we do what we do for the animals. Fiona is why we get so emotional and our voices get so loud and for our persistance and diligence. Fiona is why we must continue to be their voices. Fiona is proof that all life is precious and all animals deserve the chance to live good lives.

I could watch this video a couple dozen more times, easily.

There are so many good-hearted and beautiful people in this world...millions of unsung hero's spreading Light in the darkness of apathy and ignorance... a lovely heartwarming story that inspires us all.

Part Two:
He's eating healthy, has a warm place to sleep at night, taken for walks, play time with family, gets roam of the house while the other two dogs are out on the deck for fresh air, and then back in his crate because we have a 100 pound German Shep, that doesn't like him too much so for his own safety his crate protects him. He will be moving to a new home at the end of the month with my brother and his wife to be joined by a female Jack Russell. I’m happy to say, God moved me to find him and it's a blessing in disguise because now he's in our family, a loving and loyal and faithful family towards animals. There is no way; I would ever turn my back on any animal that is in need of help.

Part One:
I was so happy to find this video again. It really makes me cry and my heart happy that Fiona was given a second chance in life. What a wonderful rescue story. I have one of my own; I just rescued a Yorkshire dog that was dumped on my apartment complex property. It was a very cold, damp morning while I was outside cleaning the grounds when I saw this little brown face looking at me and when he saw me, he stood up and was shaking like a leaf and would not come near me. So I manage after almost 45 min’s to crab hold of his leash at the end and lure him slowly out from the bushes, talking to him and pulling lightly for him to take a walk with me in which he finally agreed. We toured the neighborhood once I was able to walk him out of the parking lot where he was dumped and then I called my mother, she came and picked both of us up with intentions of taking him to a no kill shelter and on the way, she made a sudden change of heart, she stopped at the Pet store, brought him a crate, now he's home with us, not wet, cold, shaking, frighten anymore.

I know we are suppose to love our fellow man, but how can you love someone that buries a cat in cement up to it's neck? and abuse animals for years only to submit them to dealth penalty because they are afraid and don't trust at the moment from days, months, years of abuse. I hope all the ROTTEN PEOPLE WHO HAVE DONE HARM TO ANIMALS GET YOUR DAY IN HELL ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. You hurt God's animal and you will pay down the road trust me, one way or another, vengence will come back to you double fold and it could be through your animal if you own one.

I can't help but look at this video over and over again of how the wonderful caller called to have angels rescue this dog and nurse her back to health. To all the people in this dogs life that made it possible for her to enjoy more years of life, if you have not had a blessing yet, I sure pray and hope God will bless you more then you can handle, even to the owners of Fiona. Thank you to all of you for the call, picking her up, washing her clean, showing her love, the surgery and now Fiona is one wagging, tongue sticking out, smiling Fiona and runny for joy now.
