Professor to the World . . .

She died. She simply died.

I saw the last pulse vanish out of her arm as the veterinarian's needle extracted her life away.

Her name was Professor.

Her head dropped from my arms 9 years ago today, at this very minute, as I am writing to you all between miracles and tears.

On this day I turn a story over to you all, a national story.

Stories by the Sky Full


Throughout this new year, newspapers, magazines and every horn blowing media mouthpiece will call out, “Introducing Professor Zimbabweeps!”

The story of Professor, a throwaway dog turned international icon for miles upon miles of families worldwide, will thread through the media like the tail of a firecracker.

Story excerpts from New Delhi to Rome, where hands reach across oceans to hold hope together for thousands of animals gunned down by an insidious tormentor disease . . . . . . . . .

. . . . . . . my stories will be yours.
