So, when she was about to just give up because life had become THAT HARD, she didn't, mostly because of her dog. And it was because of her dog that her story went viral among the animal rescue community here. She is still trying to find more permanent lodging and a job, but she is waking up every day with Boca, knowing that there are people who are willing to provide whatever hand up they can. I'm going to drop off some business suits that I no longer wear and plenty of race t-shirts this weekend (two things I have more than enough of). If you get a chance, read the article, think about contributing a buck or two, do something nice for a stranger, and hug your dog/cat/family member.
Because, in the end, we ARE all in this together and any little bit you do to help another helps us all.
