Lady, a black Lab, had a happy home in Sedan, Kansas and was well cared for. But after fifteen years, her owner passed away and Lady’s troubles began. She had to be sent to a shelter and joined many other dogs waiting for adoption.
Lady was a nice well-behaved dog, and soon she was adopted by another family in Sedan. All went well until the family got a puppy - Lady did not like small dogs and treated the puppy roughly. The family decided to give Lady to a friend who lived in Independence, Kansas, about thirty miles away. Lady was homesick for her family in Sedan, however, and although old and arthritic, she somehow walked the thirty miles back to them. But Lady had another problem: the family in Sedan still did not want her, and the friend from Independence decided not to keep her either. So back to the shelter Lady went. Would Lady ever find another home?
Then someone posted a story about Lady on Facebook and it went viral. One of the people who saw the story was a lady named Helen Rich, a millionaire heiress. Immediately she went into action, sending a private jet to bring Lady to her 120-acre farm in Odessa, Florida. All the arrangements were made, and Lady arrived at her new home (in style!) on July 31st. Lady's new living quarters are quite a bit different from the place she just came from, but I'm sure she doesn't mind... now she lives like a queen, enjoying her new life in her owner’s mansion!
