How to put a little love in your heart ...

It was a nailbiting showstopper that would rival anything this season could offer on the big or small screen!   From the first heartstopping facebook post on Saturday about a little dog running across the bridge to Dartmouth ... to the heartache of seeing an adoptable ARC dog listed on the Nova Scotia Lost Dog Network .... straight through to the heartbreaking discovery that last night Sasha had been struck by a car!
To quote her foster Mum ...  Sasha really is a little miracle!   In true terrier style, this amazing little dog has been holding at stable since she was rushed to the emerg clinic last night!  
Mind you, this story might have had a completely different outcome if Sasha had not been microchipped!  Without the surety that someone would be able to step up for the vet bill ... when she had been so very badly injured ....  this morning Sasha might have been sleeping with the angels:(
Does this mean that ARC is dripping in riches?  That they have a special fund for sudden emergencies?  Of course not!  
Sasha has done her bit!  The little dog that her foster Mum calls Little Miss Busy Bee has fought like a warrior to stay stable.  That same determined spirit that has stood Sasha in good stead since she was rescued will come in pretty darned handy in the days ahead!
There has been a LOT for Sasha to learn since she was rescued!   In true terrier smartypants style, she has settled into domestic bliss like an old pro.   That same strength of spirit that gives her wings at the beach will stand her in good stead now!
Sasha was stabilized last night and shows every chance of making a full recovery.  It will not be easy and it will not be quick.   Nor will it be cheap.  If you would like to help with this journey, please CLICK HERE
What time is it?  It is always time to remember that 100% of all donations to rescues like ARC that are entirely powered by volunteer love go straight "to the dogs".   Even better, ARC has been around long enough that they have CRA status and can offer the ever so helpful tax receipt for next year.
Best of all of course is that there are rarely such easy and effortless opportunities where one can really help to save a good dog's life!
You see its getting late oh please don't hesitate
Put a little love in your heart
And the world will be a better place
