Living in Florida, the sunshine state, we tend to forget the dangers that lurk in the north. The recent hard freeze Jacksonville experienced was a taste of the bitter cold felt by those in New England. When we were bundling up for the frosty air, our northern friends were bracing frozen waters and wet, icy snow. It sure does make us appreciate where we live and be grateful for those that will risk their life for a furry companion. Thank you to the rescue workers who place their lives on the line every day to save a life, 2-legged or 4-legged. Your actions don’t go unmissed, and we are thankful for your service.
