My heart was still aching over the loss of my dog Aja. Sylva Kelegian, a rescuer extraordinaire, was looking for a foster home for this dog that she rescued from a landfill. Almost feral, no social manners, she had a few litters and her left front paw in a cast with a broken ankle. I agreed to keep her until her cast came off. Well, Tee had decided otherwise. She took a good look at me and declared: “You are mine”.
