I wanted to share a story with you. This is “Vonn”. (named after a warrior) When he was 6 months old, he had gasoline poured on him and was lit on fire. He was burned over 70% of his body and lived the next couple of months in the intensive care unit of the Texas A & M University, College of Veterinary Medicine. He underwent intense therapy and was anesthetized for treatment and bandage changes every day for a month. His story drew a great deal of public attention.
He was such a happy puppy, despite such torture. He was in a full body cast and would hobble to you, wagging his tail. After 2 years and some continued special care, he is now a full grown, beautiful, loving boy that brings so much joy to others.
He gives back by being a blood donor for the vet school and we plan on figuring out how he can visit burned children. We would like to write a children’s book about him. He is a great testament to endurance and forgiveness. His motto is ” Your scars do not define you. How you choose to live with them does.”
