I really want to express my heartfelt thanks to Henry Brzezinski and El Dorado County Animal Services for saving the life of little Sophie. This is a classic example of why so many animals are in the shelter, and euthanized, due to owners not willing to fully accept the responsibility of training. Rather than get rid of the problem through training and education, they choose to put their loved ones to sleep. I find it very sad.
This happens all over the country. Getting a dog is not like getting a plant. It is a total life commitment and should not be taken lightly. This dog now has a chance to live a full life. We all should learn a very valuable lesson — that life is precious. They give us unconditional love 24/7 and the least we can do is give them the same.
