Connor Bambi Dennis

Written by Connor's adoptive mom

This story appears on the animal rescue site today.

It was a cold, dark night on the back roads of Ohio when this baby boy, his brother, and three adult females left the commercial breeding facility behind forever. CRASH! -- the van in which they were traveling collided with a deer! The van was totaled, but all inside were only shaken and bruised.

Not the best introduction to freedom, but Bambi (so named by Col. Potter CairnRescue in memory of the encounter) took all this in stride and greeted every new person he met with kisses and a wagging tail.

Two weeks later I made the five hour drive to Ohio to adopt him and it was love a first sight! His foster mom was very sad to see him go. On the ride to his forever home he told me that his name was really Connor, so Bambi became his middle name.

Connor has such a joy for life, and he has healed my heart that was broken when my furboy, Murdoch, died of cancer two years ago. I am so lucky to have this little sweetheart.
