Ralph's Story

We found Ralph on one of our late evening jaunts to the grocery store. When we first sighted him, lying near the door in the dead of winter, we thought he was dead; he didn't move, raise his head, or show any signs of life. When I knelt down beside him though and touched his head, he came to life and the first thing I noticed was the gentleness in his eyes.

Once home where we could more clearly see him, we were dismayed. The tears began to roll as we realized the trauma this poor boy must have gone through in his few short years.

  1. That was such a sweet and tender story. I cried at the end. It always amazes me how people can be so cruel. Kudos to you and your husband for taking him in. He looked to be a wonderful member of the family.
