Libby's Troubled Waters Are Calmed

written by volunteer and adopter, Shari.

Libby"Libby-the-flood-dog" became part of our family after her family was displaced last year in the historic floods in the Estes Park area. But what's really special about this story is that Libby was 12 ½ years old at the time.

When the email about Libby came out through CGA's Yahoo E-group and facebook page, I cried as I read it to my husband. We never even considered adopting a third dog, but there was just something about her story that made us both want to jump in and help. We were so happy to be selected as her adopters because seven potential adopters had stepped up and said they wanted to help Libby.

Libby settled in pretty quickly, especially considering the trauma she must have experienced between being taken out on an ATV, being displaced from her home, and jumping from place to place while her family tried to figure out what was going on with their house and their future. In just the first couple of hours she made herself comfortable on our couch and showed us that she may be old but she's a diva.

We've always heard how special the senior hounds are, but we never fully understood until Libby came into our lives. There's just something about Libby that makes one melt, and we fell head over heels right away.

Everyone tells us she's such a lucky hound to have found us, but we believe we are the lucky ones. There may be a lot of missing years and we don’t know how long we're going to have with her, but it's as if she's always been here and we’re going to love her with all our hearts every day.

Libby now bestows her love on the Wagner family.

Every hound is a winner when you donate your time to Colorado Greyhound Adoption.
