Earlier this year we were very happy to to receive an email from the new Mom of one of the first pups we featured, Ernie. In the beginning life of our blog, Ernie (who used to be named Bosco) became our blog mascot.
In the email, Ernie's Mum told us that she saw last year's Rescue Me video on YouTube and recognized her new 'best friend.' She found my email address and sent off a note to us right away, letting us know she had adopted him in October of 2007, and how grateful she is for having him in her life. She adopted him from the same shelter that rescued me, the Southside Animal Shelter in Indianapolis.
So this year, we dedicate our video to Ernie, who is now affectionately named Ernie Bosco (since his Mum found out his original name at the shelter). Thank you Ernie B. for lending your name, face and life to helping other pups find their forever home, just like you and I did.
