Satos and elephants

True story: Someone was watching “100,000” today, a gut-wrenching film about the satos (street dogs) of Puerto Rico. I didn’t pay any attention, even though it was filled with barking dogs and in Spanish, my native tongue. Then I heard a voice that made me sit up and bark and bark and bark. It was Gloria Marti, the president of Save A Sato, the group that saved me from the streets and had my leg amputated. I haven’t heard her voice since I left San Juan about seven years ago. Like elephants, those who have kindness extended never forget. Consider that when you have the chance to help someone out, whether they are two-, three-, or four-legged.
