Dogs with sad stories get new lease on life in Italian towns

Brindisi, January 15 - Residents in two southern
Italian towns are rallying around two stray dogs with special
needs.
Tommy is welcomed and pampered by the priests at his local
parish in San Donaci, where the 12-year-old German Shepherd-mix
attends the same church services that once drew his mistress.
Indeed, since her death Tommy is a regular at every
baptism, wedding or funeral, rain or shine, says Father Antonio
de Marco, assistant pastor of the church of Santa Maria degli
Angeli in San Donaci.
"It would be nice if someone adopted it," adds the priest.
Meanwhile, posters around town in Alliste warn folks that
Rocky is on a special diet after kidney failure.
Yet despite his illness, he still enjoys a comfortable,
leisurely life.
That includes breakfast as his local bar, including a piece
of croissant, then lunch at a local butcher, followed by a light
evening meal of pizza or other restaurant leftovers.
The local government covered his medical expenses when
Rocky's kidney failed, and the town turned out to greet him
after his release from the veterinarian.
