Providence (prov’i dens), n. 1. the foreseeing care and guardianship of God over His creatures. 2.

Little did we know when we brought “Lucky,” the abused and rejected Doberman, into our home the impact she would have on our lives. From an insecure, traumatized dog to a loyal and devoted friend, the journey was occasionally challenging but always joyous. We were made better people by inviting this little red waif into our home and hearts and letting her grow into Miley Anne Fullerton, PhD… Professional house Dog. I am forever grateful for the lessons she taught me, lessons that I will be able to use to the end of my life. By writing her story the hope is that she will not only inspire others to consider a rescue dog, but she will also be passing on to the world some of those life lessons she was here to teach. May the readers of her story be so blessed.
