In the summer of 2004, veterinarian Melanie Butera got an unexpected patient one day. It was a blind and seemingly dying fawn that she eventually called Dillie. This story, titled “Love on Tiny Hooves”, shows us a glimpse into the lives of Butera and her husband and the pet they decided to adopt into their family. The poor fawn couldn’t have survived the night on her own, but thanks to the love provided by this couple from Canal Fulton, Ohio, she recovered and is doing great.
Dillie has become an integral part of their family now. She is treated like a child by the couple and she loves lollipops. She plays games with her dad and pulls his hat off his head, and she also has her own bedroom in the house. She is quite spoiled. Her dad brings the tree to her so she doesn’t even have to go outside to eat the leaves. Watching them together is heart-warming to say the least! Melanie has been battling stage 4 cancer, but she says that Dillie taught her that every life is a gift. She feels that while she saved Dillie’s life, Dillie repaid her by saving hers.
