So glad that you folks still care about Kelso...it really warms my heart. Glad that you are not tired of getting occasional updates. 

I hope that sometime in my life I have the opportunity to help another severely damaged and shut-down dog the way Kelso was when he first came, because it is the most rewarding thing ever. But even if I do have that chance, I will always love Kelso best. :-)

And yes, he does have an incredible life.

I always use Kelso as an example when I discuss fostering with someone. How incredibly rewarding fostering can be, and how much one can learn.

I use him as an example when talking about puppy mills, as do his people, who often talk to people about that and do what they can to inform people about that problem.

Kelso has been a very important relationship in my life, because not only is he a wonderful dog but also he represents so much more than just his own life.

He has touched deeply so many people he will never meet. I find that remarkable and it does warm my heart.
