Lana, the Saddest Dog in the World, Happy With Her Foster Family: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

After a heartbreaking photo of Lana the shelter dog went viral, thousands offered to adopt her. Terrific news, Lana the Saddest Dog in the World, has settled in with her new foster family and she is deliriously happy.


Lana was so pathetically sad in the animal shelter that she didn`t even want to go out for a walk. A dog that doesn`t want to go out for a walk, that`s like a rabbit that doesn`t want to mate, or a cat that doesn`t want to cause mischief.

The default mode of a dog is joy; my pooch Mandy is always wagging her tail in happiness, her good mood in infectious, neighborhood kids smile when they see me walking her.

All is right in the world, Lana is happy! There are many lonely pooches at your local animal shelter, waiting for a forever home.
