A Sad Update to a "Happy Ending"
Babs, was a big black lab mix who sat at our shelter for months waiting for the right home. She found them in the Wilsons who sent us their adoption story for our "Happy Endings" page. (Read it here: http://www.eastbayspca.org/ adoptableanimals/ happyendings.cfm?id=8).
The Wilsons kept us updated by dropping by our City Center storefront in downtown Oakland and sending holiday cards featuring Babs and her brother Ranger in an assortment of holiday gear.
I received news today that after being ill for sometime, Babs was humanely euthanized at home. I'm grateful to the Wilson family for sharing small pieces of her life with the shelter staff (even this very sad one), and most of all for giving an overlooked sweet big, old, awkwardly shaped dog the best years of her life.
