Whittington saved Kalo as a pup from the Hillsborough County Pet Rescue Center and she hasn’t left her side since. “She’s been close by through moves, and sweethearts, and the insanity of life,”
said Whittington.Seven-year-old Kalo is a fringe collie/Australian shepherd blend, and she is Sasha Whittington’s entire world. “She’s my life saver, she’s my family,” said Whittington.
However, that all changed on Wednesday morning when Whittington took Kalo to Banfield Pet Hospital at the PetSmart on State Road 60 in Brandon. Whittington says she took Kalo in for a standard teeth cleaning. She says while under the watchful eye of a vet tech, Kalo sneaked out of her neckline and ran out the programmed front entryways.
“I’m past baffled and dismal. For her to simply flee like that is obliterating,” said Whittington. From that point forward, Whittington says she has spent about each second setting up signs and looking for Kalo.”It’s insane that a pet can mean such a great amount to you.
I didn’t understand the amount I depended on her for everything,” said Whittington.
