Rooster came to Dirk’s Fund in 2007 as a result of a drug bust. He had heartworms (grade 4) and weighed less than 45 lbs. Our veterinarian slowly treated him for his heartworms and my wife cared for him. All the time, we were prepared for the fact that he could die any day. While he lived with us, he never had an accident, learned to “tell” us when it was feeding time and became Ona’s constant companion. His favorite spot in our yard was on a deck overlooking the back yard. We have no idea how old he was but for sure the only part of his life that he remembers was from when he found his caretaker-Ona. Only his passing could have broken that bond.
