Then, one morning, they set a dog just out of surgery on Dominics huge red pillow just outside the operating room. Dominic immediately came over to cuddle. That was just his nature. He cuddled with everyone, from Haswells kids to dogs.
Haswell, though, remained a little skeptical. Dominic was cuddling with the new dog because he was cold, she thought. She changed her mind later that day, when Dominic lay in the middle of a pile of dogs out of surgery and rested his head on their bodies when they cried. The dog who cried the most got the most cuddle time from Dominic.
Dominic would even cuddle with cats out of surgery, though they werent as receptive as the dogs.

How sweet. Dogs just love and want to be loved, no ulterior motives.

Thank you for the post. Not emphasized in the abq article is that this clinic cares for the pets of low-income owners. They’ll gladly accept sponsorship for various animals:
More pics of handsome Dominic there too!

A side note. There is a Great Dane, Nina aka Fine Wine, in Galveston that was beaten by an animal control officer and was set to die; although they deny it. However, after a lawyer advocacy group got involved, she was released into their custody after 4 days of not knowing what would happen to her.
We are thrilled.

That is just so heartwarming.
