Lady the Lab (aka Ma Kettle)
First you cry, then cry some more, but in the end, Lady was rescued & is happy!
The old girl's owner died & nobody wanted her. She was eventually adopted into a home that later got foo-foo lapdogs & Lady "was ruff with them". So, back to the shelter she went. After some time there, she escaped & walked 30 miles home but the!@%$&! people would not take her back.
Here is the good part: The story went viral in news & social media. Rossburg, the great-granddaughter of the founder of the famous Wrigley's gum, is a self-described animal lover. She has used a portion of her inheritance to help neglected and abandoned animals. She has built a 120-acre farm in Odessa, FL, that houses 300 animals including rabbits, pigs and goats. She even built an on-site home for a trainer to work with dogs dealing with behavioral issues. She reportedly has a staff of 15 to care for the animals, and eventually adopts out some of the animals or they are trained to be service dogs. When Rosburg learned about Lady's plight, she stepped in. The plane was sent to Independence and a car ride was made Thursday afternoon to Sedan to pick up the tail-wagging Lady.
Rosburg sent her assistant, Chet Ragsdale, to pick up Lady.
"She's going to think she's gone to heaven," Ragsale said.
Rosburg has vowed to give Lady a pampered life, and she will join the cats and dogs already inside Rosburg's home. She will have plenty of room to play outside.
Go buy a pack of gum!
