"Dogs are amazing creatures.They give unconditional love. For me, they are the role model for being alive." - Gilda Radner
2020 has been difficult for everyone. There may be a silver lining, however: our challenges have forced us to remember what really matters, the simple things that make life worth living -- especially each other. We who work at SOS Chapala DOG Rescue, who struggle together to create from scratch a refuge for abused and abandoned dogs, marvel at how resilient they are; how, in spite of everything they've endured this year, they've remained happy, friendly, and so appreciative of anything and everything we do for them. Theirs is basic, enduring wisdom, which we are only remembering, which they never forgot. They teach us much.
