Yep, my mom is the current president of Echo Dogs. It's an all-volunteer organization. There are a lot of heartbreaking stories
but some very happy stories as well. Some of the dogs are too far gone, as in one that had been shot with a shotgun and the pellets left in it that didn't make it, but there are also stories like where she placed a rescued dog with a fire department, so it could have constant care and attention and live a long, happy life.
When I was born we had a shepherd named Angel. I learned to walk by clutching her fur and hanging on. She'd lay by my crib and wouldn't let anyone who wasn't family come near me. So, I've had a guard dog from day one, so to speak.
