Those of us in the rescue community applaud this family. Too many pets are surrendered on the whims of a boyfriend or spouse who then abandons the family who abandoned their pets. While we mourn (metaphorically) the passing of a fully realized character such as Weldon, we believe our narrator and her daughter embrace the true meaning of the word “family.”
