we have never met other than through this site. I can tell you honestly that both of your stories left me sitting here at a loss for words and a slight tear in the eye. It is amazing the true person hidden in people that we all rarely see anymore. Thanks for sharing this with all of us.


We have met more than a few times through the years. It really takes a little something to change a person's direction in life. To you also Thanks for sharing.

I have had a pretty rough year to say the least, and more than a few times thought about throwing in the towel on the path I was on(not litterally, but just a 180 degree change) but stuck with it because I knew it would work out. In the last 30 days or so I have it happened. During a major downturn in the economy I have been doing better than I have probably in the last 2 years buisness wise, and it looks like it will get better and better from here. I have a lot of work ahead, but I can finally see some light. Even though I cant afford to do many of the things people here can, I think I will seek out some kind of way to do just what that man did for you in the jewlery store the other day. As rough as I have it still, someone out there is in worse shape, and I will see if I can pay it forward in some way.

Thanks for both of those stories.

How is Zul doing? here is he now?

Last I heard great, he ended up with a Vet tech from our vets office. He was a single male, perfect for Zul.
