(C.A.R.E. Name: Enzio)
This past week mark's Mario's one year anniversary for his Adoption Day, April 20, 2009. His adoption followed a tragic and untimely loss of my cat, Monty. He and my dog, Phoebe, had developed an amazing relationship. It was always a battle of the wits between the two of them. I knew Phoebe missed him as well as the company and stimulation he provided. I didn't realize how much she had been grieving until she laid eyes on Mario for the first time. The dog began to weep with joy. At first Mario startled, then he approached the dog and they touched noses through the baby gate. The rest has been history. He has brought so much joy to my home, to me and to my dog. I have my moments when I truly feel Monty handpicked this fellow for us.
