Amazingly, something dramatic took place following that phone call on Saturday morning.
Furey shared the miraculous news early Monday:

“Dr Melgey couldn't do it--when he walked into his pen to get him, Tigre walked over to him, wagged his tail and rested his head again his leg and just looked at him with those sad eyes and Melgey couldn't do it.

You cannot currently send a star to June because you have done so within the last week.
