Senior citizen, elderly dog start new life together
Poodle found wandering streets of CT
COLCHESTER, Vt. —It was a tale of two seniors
A 14-year-old poodle named Holly, found wandering on the streets of Connecticut, was in need of a home. An 85-year-old Vermont woman was in need of a friend.
The two started a new life together on Thursday. Holly was flown here by a volunteer private pilot. Her new owner, Ann Mongeon, couldn’t wait to meet her.
“I wanted a companion. I live alone and I wanted a companion,” said Mongeon.
Holly came armed with shots and new dental work — well, one tooth to be exact. The rest of them needed to be removed.
For Mongeon, and the folks at Poodle Rescue of Vermont who arranged the adoption, the 6-pound-poodle was a perfect match.
After the airport meet-up, Holly and her owner went to the store for a new leash and dog food.
