our vibrant dolly was found on the streets in decatur, alabama and lived through several more lives before coming to live with us in 2003. she was undimmed by her negative experiences and kept us smiling with her joyful daily antics. she taught our other dog, a rescued traumatized dachshund, how to be a real dog and the two of them became a team who schemed to manipulate us into giving more treats and succeeded! dolly stood on our toes if we failed to respond! her humor, courage, and fine character will live on in our hearts as we send her on her way surrounded by love.
