TODAY WE ARE REMEMBERING THE WONDERFUL BOY MARLIN!
HE HAS JUST RECENTLY LEFT THIS WORLD TO ENJOY HIS NEXT ADENTURES OVER THE RAINBOW BRIDGE!
THIS IS A CELEBRATION OF MARLIN’S LIFE!
We first met MARLIN’S Mum when we wrote about her amazing journey in life, fostering 190 puppies….. you can read her beautiful story here…… (you will love it!) https://happydoggynews.com/2022/04/04/190-puppies-saved-by-the-wonderful-penny-and-amazing-dog-rescues/
Since that particular story she is now fostering another five wonderful RESCUED puppies and you can see their dear little faces here ….. https://happydoggynews.com/2022/06/18/5-more-rescue-pups-for-penny-to-foster
It was this beautiful boy who Penny fell in love with that changed her course in life and led to so many other puppies getting lucky and being in her wonderful care! THANK YOU MARLIN!
She had never thought about fostering dogs before so we asked Penny how did this all begin? What was the day that changed everything?
Penny told us …….
‘We had just moved to CABO in 2007. I was at a woman’s meeting and a girl was there with 3 newborn puppies, 17 days old. She was crying saying her husband said she could not bring anymore dogs home. So I took them and she came and showed me how to give them a bottle. There were 3 puppies, MARLIN, which we kept, SASSY his sister who found her forever home in Sacramento and LUCY who got adopted to Canada!’
MARLIN remained with Penny and her husband – he certainly had found his ‘forever home’!
Over the years MARLIN became foster brother to so many puppies! He took all in his stride and became the perfect mentor to all of them!
MARLIN was like a fish in water and loved nothing more than to swim wherever there was water. He would sometimes literally fall asleep with his head in a bowl of water! Penny lives in Cabo and people like to catch the fish MARLIN there, so there you have it, this was the perfect name for this wonderful boy!
MARLIN was a dream doggy, he loved people, cats, dogs, kids, car rides and daycare! A love of life and happy to be part of whatever was going on at the time!
He was always so happy to wake up in the mornings and would go to bed a content boy! He couldn’t wait for his morning treat and his home made dinners in the evenings! (a true foodie!)
MARLIN – A beautiful soul who had such an impact on so many people and helped nurture so many puppies! Having the very special X Factor which you can’t always put your finger on but you know you are in the presence of a very special creature indeed!
You most definately earnt your Angel Wings MARLIN and if they could give our more than one pair, you would be honoured with them!
You are truly going to be a God Send to all the other doggies who are having new adventures over the beautiful Rainbow Bridge! They have a true angel with them now!
