RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Well it's the start of another day. Hope it is better day for us. Made it home okay and got a good night's rest. Sue is up and about, that's a good sign. Sorry we had to leave the rally early, couldn't be helped. Wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I have followed this thread from the very beginning. For some reason, I decided today to go read the beginning again. During the last 12 years, I have cried with the other members as they lost beloved pets. I have also lost some of my own. Thank you Richard for rescuing an old dog and starting us all on this wonderful journey. Each animal that has passed through this story has touched some or all of us. Each human has done the same. Thank you also to all who have kept the story going. I have checked this thread almost everyday for 12 years, it does not seem that long.. Thank you for staying with us all these years. There are a lot of loving memories here

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Fall is really in the air as the morning are cool and fog is as thick as pea soup. The camper is loaded and tomorrow morning we leave for the Old Fella Rally. Dandy Dan called last night to say he was a bit under the weather, but hoped to be on the road this morning. Things here at home are quiet and we are missing Hobo. Suzie isn't eating her food as she should. She eats some of it and will leave the rest for later on in the day. In the past if she did that Hobo would eat it. So I guess Suzie feels she doesn't have to eat it all at one time since Hobo isn't here. Sue and I talked about another dog and decided to wait and see what happens. In the past as I have mentioned we haven't had to go looking as there was always one brought to us one way or another. We prefer an older dog that has lost it's home for whatever reason. They seem to make the best fit for us, we'll see. Tomorrow we plan to be in Sevierville by afternoon. Looking forward to seeing everyone and looking forward to time spent around the campfire. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Sgt Joe in the beginning of the thread there was some interest in a book being written by a woman who wrote a column for a news paper. She did write a so called book that was never published. It was more of a short story you would read in Readers Digest. There was a person on the Jay Leno show who worked real hard at getting the story on his show and it almost made it. It got so serious I had to get an agent to represent the Old Fella story. As time wore on interest wore thin until no one was interested in doing anything. I started writing a book myself but got bogged down and weary of the project. I feel you are right that in the right hands this could make a great movie and a matter of fact there was some interest according to my agent in making a movie. The Movie Hachia came out and I guess that was enough for the movie industry. Maybe as time goes on and the story becomes more widespread someone will see the compassion and heartfelt love that is in this story and do something with it.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Some of you will be leaving for Sevierville tomorrow and perhaps some of you are already on the road. Looking forward to seeing you Monday when we get there. This will be the first time since 2005 that we are traveling with just one dog. Suzie is so active at her age its hard to believe she has so much energy and gets around like a much younger dog. Yesterday she came into the camper with me while I was loading for the trip. She came up the steps just like a two year old and exited the same way. You can tell she misses Hobo when things get quiet in the house. She goes to Hobo's bed and sniffs it and lays down beside it, not on it. Izzie has taken one of the beds that Hobo would sometimes sleep on so Suzie doesn't bother with that one. The weather in Sevierville is going to be nice during the day light hours and at night it is going to be cold. Not much rain in the forecast so we will have a great time. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Back in 2009 I received a phone call from a Mr. Cyrus Staples Trecartin. He was about to enter the hospital for an extended stay and requested help in taking care of his animals. He planned to return home, but really didn't know if he would survive the stay at the hospital. I was told he had two dogs named Mama and Hobo and forty cats. I agreed to help out. I contacted Bruce then president of The Old Fella Burke County Animal Rescue and the work began. Every day someone went out to Mr. Cy's home in Burke county to feed the two dogs and forty cats. Bruce found a broken pipe that ran from the outside well into the house and repaired it. This went on for a month and then we realized Mr. Trecartin wasn't coming home as he had hoped. I went out to the house and got Mama and carried her to the vet to be bathed and checked over for anything that might be going on with her. I was told she had so many fleas they had to bath her three times to get rid of all them and the water ran red after the first two baths she was so infested. Meanwhile back at the house Hobo was still there as we couldn't catch her. Sue and I went everyday from November on into 2009 of the next year feeding cats and trying to catch Hobo. Finally on a Saturday I was able to catch Hobo and bring her home. She and Mama hadn't seen each other for three weeks so it was a great reunion for them when Hobo arrived. We continued to feed the cats daily until all, every single one of them had been adopted. One day I was going to feed the cats and decided to Take Mama with me. The moment I turned down the driveway going to the house Mama got excited. When I stopped the truck and opened the door Mama bailed out and ran to the front porch where she began to scratch at the door and bark waiting on My. Cy to open the door. When Mr, Cy didn't come Mama left the porch and put her nose to the ground and circled the house. When she didn't pick up a fresh scent of Mr. Cy she went back to the truck and climbed in knowing her beloved man was not there. About a week later I decided to take Mama back out to Mr. CY's to feed the cats. When I turned down the driveway, Mama didn't move. When I stopped the truck and opened the door Mama didn't get out. She knew My. Cy was gone and was not coming back. Mama lived to be fifteen years old before the crossed the bridge. This week Hobo, her daughter joined her and perhaps the three of them are rejoicing together, Mama, Hobo and Mr. Cy. https://i.imgur.com/oy1AWNPl.jpg

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I haven't been on in a while. So sorry to hear about Hobo. I ran across this and wanted to share it here: https://www.quora.com/Is-it-better-to-be-with-your-pet-when-put-to-sleep/answer/Iva-Izabela?srid=hoE8s Thanks so much for the link. It touched my heart and I agree that when your fur baby is about to leave the one he or she loves should be there with them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It is going to be a cool day today with the temp in the lower 70's. We are fine just missing Hobo. Suzie and Izzie have been worried about her and can't figure out what happened to her. Sue has taken Hobo's passing pretty hard. She and Hobo were very close. Just a few more days and we will be leaving for the Old Fella Rally. Looking forward to getting out of the house and away from every thing. I hope all is well with everyone and you are looking forward to a blessed weekend. I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed weekend. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Thank you Jim for your words of encouragement. Many times I have felt Sue and I were the ones rescued. So many fur babies have passed through our lives each one leaving a mark on and in our hearts. I wouldn't change one moment we have spent with the fur babies for silver or gold. There has been special ones that have touched us in a way that is hard to explain. Hobo was a special girl, She wasn't the sharpest one in the pack but she really left us in awe with her love and trust. When she came to us she had not been socialized. It was very oblivious from the beginning contact with humans had been limited. Mama became her teacher and guardian. Whatever Mama did, Hobo followed. It took two years for hobo to really adjust to life with a family. We never heard her bark until she had been with us for two years. She was timid and so eager to please and did not want any attention brought to her. When she would approach me she would do so with head bowed down approaching very slowly until she felt my hand touching her and then she would know I was accepting her, then she would lift her head and wag her tail. Such a sweet spirit and so loving. She will always live in my heart as one to the most precious fur babies we ever had.
