A large margin of online voters agreed that the victim of one of Oregon's worst animal-abuse cases should be the next Director of Barketing at the Sunriver Resort.
Tivi, a Sharpei-pit bull mix, was found on the side of the road two years ago -- his muzzle taped, bones broken, his body doused in gasoline and burned, then left for dead.
This week, he took a commanding lead over nearly 300 other entrants in a contest to find the next public face for the Central Oregon resort's pet-friendly lodgings.There's more about prizes and how he's been adopted by a wonderful, loving human. He still has to wear clothes because of damage that some of the burns left. Then there was a link to his Tumblr blog. . He and I have a few things in common. We're the same age and we don't like walks in the rain for instance. Anyway, I read through his whole blog - which is mostly photos - and fell in love with him and with his human, Jonathan, and I thought I'd like to share because I bet a lot of you would enjoy it, too. His life has had a major upgrade and it's looking like happily ever after for Tivi.
(I hope Jonathan doesn't mind that I sort of borrowed this picture. I just wanted to show how cute Tivi is.)
