Debbie Herot arrived at the veterinary clinic she managed last week to find a dog and a note on the doorstep.
"Dear Drs., please forgive me for this horrible transgression. I have no where else to turn so I ask you to mercifully, gently and lovingly please help him sleep. His name is Kaiser and he's 16-and-a half years old. He's been my friend, my teacher, my pupil, my lifelong loving and loyal companion," the letter said.

On the envelope, the author of the letter said that he thought Kaiser had two strokes the night before.

"Be good to him as you would your own child, for he's been mine for a loving lifetime," the envelope read.

The note continued, describing the life Kaiser led with the homeless disabled veteran who wrote the letter, and how close they were. Herot could not euthanize this dog. The rest of Kaiser's story involves a deceased clinic worker, veterinary staff, a Los Angeles newspaper and TV station, and Bob Mikolasko, who was reunited with Kaiser. http://ktla.trb.com/news/ktla-vet-dog-reunited,0,5137067.story (with video) -via Simply Left Behind

Does living in a motor home make you homeless?

Nice that they took care of the dog, but why give it back to an owner who does not have the means to maintain its health?

16 years is pretty old for a dog, too.

bean may be callous and insensitive, but those are valid points.
