Run Free Dottie

August 6th, 2018|

A beautiful tribute written by Dottie’s foster momma:
Yesterday, our family lost one of our own. Our amazing, beautiful hospice girl, Dottie, crossed the bridge. Dottie came into our world in 2013 after being returned into rescue. She was full of spunk despite multiple health issues. She had a malformed spine which caused mobility issues and later led to complete immobility and incontinence.

FallonBoyd, her name means Golden Leader, and she was truly that! She was her family’s Blonde Bombshell, Golden Girl, Demanding Diva and Sweetest Soul!!

She was a tyrant when it came to her meals; there had to be acceptable snacks given at HER determined hours or you would hear the wrath of Fallon. She loved to go for rides but ONLY in […]

“Every once in a while, a dog enters your life and changes everything…Author Unknown”
This rings true for our followers, but one in particular on this day. Losing our beloved animals has a different reaction with each of us, much like losing a family member. Some, like our follower Janice Walker Pogue, decide to make the lives of others better and for her very generous donation to the Village we wanted to make this day […]
