In Memory Of

Dikkens

March, 2007


Dikkens was found outside after one of the hurricanes and after many attempts to track down her family, no one claimed her. She was almost blind and almost deaf. The vet said, "She's ancient."

We thought Dikkens was like a fine wine that just got better with age. She loved to go outside and meander around, though her meandering got to be less and less as she got older. Eventually she mostly would stand in place and bark for Florence or one of the volunteers to come take her wherever she wanted to go.

What a cutie! She was named after a visitor said, "She's cute as the Dikkens."
