In May 2015, a gas station owner found Remy tied up at his station and called Maria Gaspari at Bullies-N-Beyond Rescue. She took him in, sharing his adorable picture with a friend, who sent it to me. Remy was absolutely captivating, so it’s no surprise many people wanted to adopt him. Multiple potential dog moms applied to give Remy, originally named Olef, a forever home. Maria, a woman with a heart of gold, chose me as Remy’s mom. And the rest, as they say, is history. The bond I have with Remy was clear from the beginning. Remy has taught me so many valuable lessons since coming into my life in May 2015. These are some of the most impactful.
