My dog pilgrim deserves the title of America hero dog. From the day she was born I knew she was special. She was born butt first with her tongue sticking and barking. At 6 months she was hit by a school bus. She had the will and fight in her to survive . Her whole back end was crushed.I was prepared to lose her. As a person who suffers with depression and ptsd I often isolated myself. She gave me the strength and will to fight the daily ups and downs. As the days came and went she gave me hope. The fight she fought made me reevaluate my own life. If pilgrim could have the will I had nothing comparable to hold me back. She gave me her strength and drive. Shes my best friend and my rescuer. Shes always by my side. She saved me. I struggle everyday but I manage to get through. She gave me hope and courage to live my own life with a can do attitude. I know she was ment to be here.
