Maryanne Dell: The dog who flew high, but for too short a time

Sometimes, describing a life as “blue” isn’t a bad thing.

It certainly wasn’t in JetBlue’s case.

The Aussie, as I often referred to him, led quite a charmed life. My first dog to come from a breeder met us when he was 2 days old. My roommate, Susan, and I visited him weekly for 10 weeks, the age at which he was ready to come home. I have photos of Susan holding him in the palm of her hand, his mouth open in a wide, wide yawn (though even then, I think what he really was doing was trying to talk).

Even near the end, JetBlue remained alert. His brain was all there, but his body had quit trying. (Photo by Maryanne Dell, Orange County Register/SCNG)

Lake Forest introduces first pet adoption satellite location for county animal care

Rescue groups help old dogs find new homes

By Karin Brulliard
The Washington Post.

When a German shepherd rescue organization posted Elmo’s photo online last fall, it made no effort to mask the dog’s problems. He wore a cone around his neck to prevent him from licking the large open sore on his hip. His fungus-ridden feet were swollen. His graying, 11-year-old face held a pathetic, ears-to-the-ground gaze.

Steve Frost, a retired fire captain in Northern California, said he saw the photo and thought Elmo “looked like hell.” He immediately decided he wanted the dog.

Four months later, Frost sits by his fireplace every morning and evening and gives Elmo four
