I ask you, now, is this fair? Aren't rescuers provided some sort of special protection against things like bugs in the mouth? Stubbed toes? Untied shoelaces?
Apparently not. We have to just muddle along and inhale insects, bang our toes, and trip on our shoelaces like everyone else.
By the way, today's Dozen Dog Diaries cover model is Dany. Isn't she lovely? She's skinny, has scars all over her friendly, wiggly, boxer mix body, and one eye that looks like maybe somebody slugged her.
Her rescue began this week here on the Greek island of Kefalonia.
Stay tuned for more of her story right where you are now--The Dozen Dog Diaries.
