He was a cute little terrier. He was a very small wiry dog who could not stay still for a minute. He showed up on the back patio one afternoon, scratching the glass, warning to come in. So. I let him in. He jumped up into my arms and siarted licking my face. My folks said I could not keep Mr. Spunky, thai I would not take care of him. We looked at my folks, both with our puppy dog eyes, and finally they gave in. They gave me a list of what they expected about caring for my new friend. Mr. Spunky was a delight. Like many dogs, Mr. Spunky loved attention. People were warned if they came over, he would jump on their lap. Most people did not mind too much, but he could be a pest if he got too excited. Mr. Spunky's favorite thing to do Glen (and my favorite as well) would be to jump on the bed where I was sleeping and lay down by my face and go to sleep. He would wake up about two or three in the morning and lick my face for a minute, then go back to sleep. I always knew he loved me. When we went on family trips. my Dad would bring a box for Mr. Spunky. We put Ins favorite blanket in ihe box and that is where be would sleep We also smuggled him into our hotel rooms this way I will say that Mr. Spunky was my best friend. I was a shy. introverted child and he helped me to come oul of my shell. Ik- was welcome everywhere I went and if someone were to refuse him entrance, we would leave. Of course, il all had to come to an end. One night he was lying on the bed next to my pillow as usual, but I knew something was wrong. During that last night, he woke me with one of his routine licking sessions and then we both went back to sleep The next morning, he was lying there stiff. My best friend had died but had been siill able to let me know he loved me before passing away. We held a back yard funeral service. 1 was very sad for a long time. My loneliness kept me company for a while but one day I started to recover from my grief and go on living wiihoui him. My folks offered to buy me another pet, bul I loyally said no, Mr. Spunky was it. That is. until eleven years ago, when Miss Lady came into my life. I found her on the streets eating garbage. I took her home, and as a responsible pel owner had and M her spade. She is a wonderful friend and hopefully, someday I will tell you more about her. II thc time comes when I can no longer care for her due to my illness. I know I can call the caring people of the Pet Patrol. Their hard working volunteers will walk and feed pels when a person living with AIDS is unable to do so. They will even supply lood for pets ol those on limited income. These people love animals and help relieve you of the stress of worrying aboul youi animals when you are nol able to care for them. They will even help find suitable, loving homes For your Furry loved ones when the time comes. Sometimes people say you should not have pets when you are ill. Well, I say my beautiful friends are my best friends. When my lover Kelse died. Miss Lady and Miss Garfield (yes, my cat) kept me from going completely crazy, offering me a loving support system. The Pet Patrol knows how iheir clients feel about iheir pets. They will take very good care of them and save you the worry. So many of the Pet Pairol volunteers fall in love with their client's pets. Those that need this help in turn love the Pet Patrol. Please call them if you or a friend need their help, or if you would like to volunteer, and when they have a fundraiser, be generous. Miss Lady. Miss Garfield and all of us, thank you very much. The Pel Patrol may be contacted at 522- 1954.
