A Tribute to Tebow

 

God will prepare everything for our perfect happiness in Heaven, and if it takes my dog being there, I believe he'll be there.

Tebow was a true treasure.  My son and I adopted him from a local pet rescue organization shortly after he had been surrendered when he was less than a year old. We weren't looking to adopt a dog the day that we met Tebow, but it was immediately undeniable that he was meant to be a part of our family.  Tebow had been born without eyes and had spent most of his first year of life living in a crate, neglected and ignored. His fur was severely matted, he had urine scald, ear infections, and infections in his eye sockets.  The trauma that Tebow endured could have understandably caused him to be withdrawn and distrustful of humans, however he seemed so grateful for the love and care that we provided for him.  Despite being born without eyes, he adapted quickly to our home and became instant buddies with our Champ. Tebow learned how to sit for a treat and would come when called. He was such a smart, affectionate boy!

Sadly, our time with Tebow was cut short due to mast cell cancer.  Tebow had overcome so many difficulties in his young life, but after a year of fighting cancer, we could see that he was letting us know that it was time to let him go. 

We feel blessed that God allowed our paths to cross with Tebow's. Tebow taught us so much about perseverance and second chances.
