Buttercup, the Three Legged Dog
When I came home from work on the day before Thanksgiving, this adorable dog was hopping around our house. My 21 year old daughter had brought her home from the shelter because she couldn’t stand the thought of her being at the shelter on a holiday. I also think she had hopes that I would adopt Buttercup. As soon as I walked in the door and sat on the floor, Buttercup came over and laid her head in my lap. She had the prettiest blue eyes. We don’t know what happened to her before she got to the shelter, only that she had a severely broken leg and it had to be amputated. My daughter was not very happy that I decided not to adopt Buttercup, as a matter of fact, she told me that I didn’t have a soul :( Luckily, Buttercup was adopted by week’s end and she is living happily ever after!
