So many of you asked what happened to Stanley, and I was uncertain. Then the following arrived in my inbox last night:

My name is Cathy Stanley and I am the cocker rescuer who first came upon Stanley in the shelter. In fact, the very first time I laid eyes on him was through the video lens. You will see the video camera walking along the rows of shelter kennels, that was how I was viewing the dogs, through the lens. When I came upon the white pit bull, I stopped dead in my tracks and put the camera down. He was too painful to just pass over.

Well, then I made the video and the rest just snow balled. I hope your readers enjoy the follow up video, it has been six months in the making as Stanley’s story further played out and the ripple effect that he has had to inspire other people everywhere to go out to their local shelters and find the most sad and pathetic and ugly dog they can, and rescue their own “just one dog”.
