Hot Diggity Dog! Lucky and Diggity are coming in the New Year! How did we get Lucky?
First, we hit a deer with our car in Susanville, California, while on vacation camping with our little home-built camper. We were stranded in Susanville for nine days as we worked through finding a way home with our camper and getting the insurance to declare the car totaled, which it clearly was.
We got lucky because three airbags deployed, seat belts worked, and the car and camper stayed upright as we careened with the hood up over the windshield for 500 feet crossing an access road, plunging over a bank and smashing into a fence.
We got Lucky because the tow truck owner’s wife, who was the Animal Control Officer in the town of Susanville, had just taken 115 animals from the worst abuse case in history in the county into custody.
We got Lucky because we met her at the shelter while being invited to visit all the incredibly nice dogs that had been rescued.
We got Lucky because when I stuck my hand into her little cement cell, she pressed her head against my hand as hard as she could. She looked at me with so much love in her eyes that there was no way I would be able to forget her or leave her behind.
We got Lucky because Bernie’s heart had also melted when he met all those wonderful dogs that did not deserve what they’d been dealt.
We got Diggity because before Lucky got rescued, she’d gotten lucky with a male border collie. She surprised us all when the vet doing her travel paperwork, discovered she was pregnant. She delivered five pups. Four females and one male. One male? I could not resist.
Hot Diggity Dog, we will have pups again! Diggity and Lucky will be having a ride on the puppy bus across the country to our home around the beginning of January.
