Monday the 27th January 2014 was indeed a blue Monday, when Micky, the loveable TEARS Mascot crossed over Rainbow Bridge.
This much loved mutt almost became another statistic when he was rescued as a puppy from appalling circumstances in Masiphumelele. He was the victim of a motor vehicle accident and sustained a horrific injury to his foreleg. In addition he was malnourished, had mange, as well as hip dysplasia. With TEARS love and veterinary care he was back to new in no time!
Micky was definitely Mr Personality, a real showman, who thrived on attention. One of his favourite ambassadorial duties was to accompany us when we visited schools as part of our education initiative – he was always at his happiest mingling with a class of school children.
His passing left a huge void in my life, but I have so many wonderful memories of a faithful companion who enriched my life. I will always cherish the special bond we shared.
