Web Catch: Pegasus the puppy gets a second chance


[vimeo 126378138 w="500" h="281"]

When Dave Meinert rescued Pegasus from a backyard breeder, he was told she wouldn't live very long. Most of her siblings died shortly after they were born, and those that lived suffered serious birth defects.

He was warned that if the Great Dane puppy were to survive, she would inevitably become both deaf and blind. Feeling the weight of time upon his shoulders, Meinert chose to record his new friend and every day that he had left with her.

What transpired is a moving time lapse of a playful puppy who ultimately grew into a strong, loving companion.

Meinert has since said that work commitments have prevented him from caring for Pegasus in the way he would like, and a friend stepped in to care for her.

"After months of no solution, it was obvious that her new setup with incredible love, a bigger garden and a new best friend in Luna, another Great Dane, was more than I could offer," Meinert said in a comment.

"I am lucky that I get to visit and take her for short periods, and maybe that's why in my heart she's still with me."
