Frosty Rountree
(aka Grandma)
December 17 2010

I adopted her from a high kill shelter in Jonesboro, Ga where owner turn in are usually euthanized as soon as they walk through the doors. Somehow Frosty touched their hearts and they gave her a 2 day hold period and that's when I came along to rescue other dogs for a rescue group and I saw her. I instantly feel in love. Frosty did this funny little smile thing when she got excited and she was so happy and didn't even realize she was in a shelter where she was about to be killed. I had to take her home. She was 13 years old, but still had so much life and love left to give. I adopted her thinking that I could readopt her to a new home, but after having her at my house for a week I knew that she was never going to be anywhere else but with me. She was the most loving and loyal dog ever. Not to mention that she was the easiest dog to ever have. All she ever wanted was for someone to feed her a pet her head. She never got into anything and never bothered playing with toys. She didn't even want to go on long walks. Just let her outside to potty, feed her, and pet her head is all she wanted in life. And that's exactly what she got. I had Frosty just 3 days short of having her for 3 years when I had to make the decision to euthanize her because her lung disease had got so bad that she could not breathe anymore without being in oxygen. She was a fighter until the end and she gave me so much love and joy in those 3 years. I might have only had her for 3 years, but it feels like I've had her my whole life. Frosty was the best "by accident" rescue I have ever had and I wouldn't of had it any other way...if only for 3 years. December 16, 2010 I had to say good bye to my best friend. She was 16 and a half years old.
