Dog found in Goat Island area

Posted on November 19, 2015 2:02 pm by Robert Joseph Baker

This wonderful dog showed up on Chris Edwards’ porch the first week of November. He was starving and nothing but bones, she said. Edwards began feeding him. He is one of the “sweetest and best-behaved dogs I’ve ever seen.” Edwards said she lives in the Goat Island area, and a friend of hers saw him between the Wash Davis crossroads and Lakeside Market in mid-October. She said he was frightened at first, but now he wants to be my best friend. He looks and acts like he’s a young dog.

Can anyone in Clarendon County hear the word rain without a shudder coursing through their body?
I cannot.
My heart aches for all those who suffered losses of any kind.
Although the town of Turbeville seemed to escape the worst of the water, our out-of-town areas did not. It affected homes, vehicles, properties, roads and bridges. The list is endless.
The words loss and lost are now frequent in most conversations.
But so are two more words that you wouldn’t expect to go hand-in-hand with loss and lost: blessed and grateful.
Every person I’ve spoken with has used these two … Read the rest
