"Sadie's Story" mj hollingshead
"My husband and I had moved to Oklahoma from California during one of the most severe ice storms the area had enjoyed in years. After a few days we realized the starving terrified dog had 'come with the house.' Slowly over time, we came to know something of Sadie's history, she had been badly neglected, starved and tortured. Sadie's former owners allowed the young, unspayed female to run free and then became incensed at and abusive toward her primarily due to the fact that she had produced a litter of pups. Sadie's trust of humans was at an all time low when we first made our acquaintance. It has taken the part of the decade of the 90s for Sadie to learn that we are not going to hurt or starve or neglect her. Today Sadie is 'fat and sassy' has a lovely glossy coat and has learned to trust people, almost. She continues to be a slobbering terrorized creature during thunderstorms, hunting season or when fireworks blast in the area.
I first wrote a condensed version of Sadie's story during the mid 1990s, it appeared as an ongoing serial in 'The Grove Sun Daily,' Grove, Oklahoma. It was my intention and hope, then and now, that those who read Sadie's story will determine for themselves to also rescue an abused animal and
return it to the trusting creature it once was. My second hope is that all that read this tale will see the necessity for spaying and neutering their own pets. Spayed and neutered animals become healthier, longer lived pets for their owners.
All profits I will derive from the sale of Sadie's story will be sent intact to Dr. Vernon Newby of Bartlesville, Oklahoma for use with the Bartlesville chapter of A R F. I have requested that such monies be used for spays and neutering, necessary medical care for rescued animals, and for the care and upkeep of animals rescued by A R F."
