Shirley is a marvel, a bit eccentric, but hey, who isn't? Shirley has a pet spa, complete with pool, air conditioned kennels, a beach, if i am not mistaken, they might be able to take tennis lessons. Shirley is pet human to many dogs, old, blind, the ailing, she and they grow old together, she gives them a life they might not otherwise enjoy. many is the time, a visitor is surprised when a blankey starts to move, a rustling sound is heard, and out from underneath pops a rickety old doggy for a stretch. yes, a marvel indeed. Shirley even has a cemetery for all the pets who've rescued her, with grave markers. she has never charged a dime to take in any dog, she is one of those marvels of the Universe that God sent to remind humans just how kind people can be.
this tweet from @MochiFace a connection on twitter caught my eye, and reminded me that most of Shirley's dogs die in her arms of old age, happy, content, and knowing they were loved.
