We will wrestle over how to best serve Lennox and others like him for a long time
"We will wrestle over how to best serve Lennox and others like him for a long time. For today I've done what comes most naturally: I went to our shelter and took home the oldest and most frightened dog, who happens to look a lot like Lennox. He is eight-years-old, with bad breath, kennel cough and a host of health challenges. He is sleeping peacefully at my side, the deep slumber of one who has finally left a stressful environment. We will give him love, treats, medicine, compresses and the promise of a new life. There are hundreds of thousands of Lennox's sitting alone and scared in the shelters of your community waiting for an act of kindness. Adopt them, or foster them for awhile. Make a place for them on your couch."
