Awww....there's nothing sweeter than the love of a dog and his master. I do hope that Zelda comes home, tho', what with the snow and all......TY, Perla for this post.

Poor thing! And there are still humans that think animals have no emotions. Mistreating and abusing them when these loving, loyal creatures could very well be lifesavers.

Why don't more people realize that if you give an animal love & kindness & take good care of them, that they will pay it back to you? Everyday I hear of people abusing their animals & I'll never understand that for so many reasons. Animals are very loyal. I think they are much more loyal than people.

This story makes me cry, a very touching story. Couldn't be denied a dog has a great loyalty to his owner, even beyond human, dogs never complain, they don't stab us from behind, but many people in this world hates 'em, torturing 'em, abandoned 'em...... God Bless Zelda, I hope the family taking care of him properly with such love that Josh had given. Thanks Perla for sharing this with us. Blessings.

So sad..Similar to the DVD "Hachi" with Richard Gere. You'll bawl your eyes out.
