Katharine, a park ranger living in a national park, stumbled upon an abandoned Pit Bull in a parking lot. Her heart ached for the poor dog, whom she later named Bubby. She immediately felt a connection with him, as if he was meant to be in her life all along. The poor pup was in terrible shape and needed a person like Katharine to intervene. Bubby was exhausted, having been used as a bait dog in the past. He didn’t understand what kindness was and initially didn’t cuddle. But Katharine’s love and care would soon transform Bubby’s life in the most beautiful way.

Because of her career, Katharine spends most of her time outdoors, surrounded by wildlife and nature. She knew that she had to introduce Bubby to this incredible world. On his first hike, Bubby seemed amazed by his surroundings, as if he had never experienced such beauty before. He had a huge smile on his face the entire walk back, which made Katharine realize that Bubby truly appreciated the new life he’s been given.

It took about a week or two for Bubby to start opening up, but once he did, he became the goofiest and most lovable dog. About a month after Katharine found him, Bubby started to become really snuggly and always wanted to be where Katharine was. She and her boyfriend, Cody, began taking him on road trips, and he absolutely loved being in the car. They took Bubby up to Northern California, where he saw the Redwood forest for the first time. They also took him to the ocean, where he stood at the edge of the water and stared out for a while as if he knew that this was where he was meant to be.

One particularly memorable moment occurred when Cody was relaxing in a hammock. Bubby, wanting to be where his people were at all times, decided to climb in as well. It was a hilarious and awkward sight, but once Bubby was up there, he was so proud and happy. He seemed to be saying, “Move over, this is my spot now!” Bubby smiles whenever he is happy and it’s totally infectious.

Katharine finds it incredibly rewarding to show Bubby new things because, in his past life, he never really experienced anything. Now, thanks to her love and care, Bubby is living the life he was always meant to have – one filled with adventure, happiness, and the joy of being surrounded by people who truly adore him.
