in the Douce Deuce?? :)) That's bayou speak
for "Sweet Two" and, he is!!
Survivor of Hurrican Katrina with BFF Apollo!
What the Deuce?? My BFF is gone... :(
year-old Deuce has had a hard life and came to GCDR years
ago after being surrendered at a vet's clinic when he was
found to have parvo. He was adopted by a veterinarian in
Mississippi and there, met his best friend Deuce. Life was
good there until Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast Community.
His owner believed her home was safe as it had withstood
hurricanes before. Intending to ride out the storm with
her dogs she finally relented to family pressure and sought
shelter at the last minute leaving Apollo and Deuce behind
with enough food and water for several days. Her Mississippi
community was virtually washed away by the storm. She returned
home as soon as local police would allow and found her home
only partially standing. Doors had to be knocked down to
search through the devastation. Behind the last door were
Apollo and Deuce, curled up together on a wet mattress.
Scratches near the ceiling evidenced their desperate attempts
to keep their heads above water as it rose. Together, Apollo
and Deuce had miraculously survived.
to the financial hardships brought by the storm their owner
surrendered both Apollo and Deuce back to GCDR. Given all
these two wonderful dobes have been though it has been decided
that it would be a crime to separate them now. Apollo and
his buddy Deuce are now with a wonderful foster family until
a forever home can be found who will take them both. They
are extremely bonded and spend their days on a sofa together
where you can find Deuce gently grooming his dear friend
Mr. Deuce's BFF Apollo died in April of 2012 - they had
more than another year together. Mr. Deuce misses
his BFF a lot but he is comforted in the love and care he
