Our neighbor Avery loves animals. About three months ago, as she was working at Make A Wish Foundation (which has nothing to do with animals), a distraught woman called and told her that she had a dog in her backyard but wasn't able to take care of it. Avery, went over to the woman's house, and found Bear tied up in the backyard in August heat with no shade. He was covered with probably over 100 fully engorged ticks. Bear's owner, who was blind and couldn't take care of her dog, let Avery take him, as she promised to find him a new home. This is how Bear ended up in our backyard. And as they say, the rest is history. We are pleased to introduce the newest member of the McWhorter family.
