 Sir Eldon

Dec. 14, 2004 - Jan. 24, 2015
Written by Foster Dad, Neil Persinger:

Sir Eldon was my special needs foster, always close to me although a bit wobbly at times due to his severe arthritis. Despite his physical disabilities, he always wore a big, happy, Collie smile and bonded closely with his senior family. His loud, trumpeting bark signaled dinnertime each day during the year he was with us. Eldon was deaf, moderately vision impaired, and was diagnosed with severe arthritis of the spine and rear joints. Upon entering our rescue program, he was tested heart worm positive, and he managed the treatment like a trooper. Everyone loved him, but I was the fortunate one to have him as my hospice foster. I will truly miss my happy boy and that big affectionate smile.
