The ones that find you
"On August 13, 2004, Hurricane Charley made land fall in Charlotte County, Florida, and our home was directly in its path.," says Denise Guinn. "Our oldest son had made his desire to have a dog known on a regular basis, and my husband and I briefly considered his request, but certainly knew that this was not a good time to introduce an animal into our lives."
By October 2004, they were finally able to move back into their home. As they were heading out to church one day, they noticed a dog curled up under a tree in our front yard. "My son yelled out, 'Look, there's my puppy!'" The Guinn's kept the dog and recently celebrated her fourth birthday. "We truly believed that the best pets are the ones that find you!"
