DOVER — Bill Moser and Buck, a nearly two-year-old Great Pyrenees, are living proof that Christmas miracles can happen.
It certainly does appear as if fate — or just plain good luck — brought man and canine together last Friday.
Consider that Mr. Moser, of Felton, was forced to have Ace, his former faithful friend and Great Pyrenees, euthanized at the Middletown Animal Hospital on Nov. 15 after the dog experienced organ failure at the age of 13 years, 11 months old.
Meanwhile, Buck had gone through a pair of homes over the past month and was about to be placed in an animal shelter, which can be a difficult proposition for such a large breed of dog.
Against incredibly long odds, Mr. Moser and Buck were introduced at the perfect time in each other’s lives. It turned out to be love at first sight.
