She was a little worse for wear; had lost a bit of her "polish" but she was still the same sweet Lola underneath it all. I was about to take her back to the Correctional Industrial Facility when the people who adopted our Tony, a majestic brown and white pit bull, came back for a playmate for him. Tony had been abandoned in a house. My first thought was Lola.
We went to the play yard where Tony and Lola fell in love at first sight and their human adopters were right behind them. As they drove off, Tony and Lola's big smiling pit heads were hanging out the truck windows; it was as if they were laughing. Lola and Tony both get a second chance and they get to spend it together with two great humans. It doesn't get any better than this.
Come find your own feline or canine Lola or Tony. Save a life — make a difference. Adopt a shelter animal. They will love you unconditionally.
