Farewell Sweet Carson

Our hearts go out to Russ and Dorothy after the passing of their beloved Carson. Karen remembers them coming to Reno in 2008 to meet a stray she was fostering. They sat on the floor in her living room for about 20 minutes, coaxing this shy boy to come by them. Karen watched their patience and their reaction when he finally came up to them. She knew this was the family for Carson. We guessed his age to be three, so he had a long, wonderful life. We thank them for that.

Here is what Dorothy wrote to us: “I am so grateful for having had the chance to have him be a part of my life. He leaves a lot of people who loved him too much. Everyone has been better to have known him, and they are all grieving his loss. I know he is running like a freight train and eating everything I would not allow. My son is sure he is chowing on bowls of deer poop! I am so very lucky that you took a chance on us, and I hope you know that he gave us more happiness and joy than I can ever express.”
