A friend in need
Sherri Fiduccia holds two of her dogs Ernie, a 3-month-old rat terrier and papillon mix, and Charlie, a 7-month-old papillon-chihuahua-pomeranian mix at her home outside Monroe. Fiduccia had picked out Charlie after Labor Day of last year and later discovered he has a neurological disorder similar to Parkinsons disease, preventing him from walking properly. Worried that Charlie was depressed and lonely, Fiduccia brought home Ernie and the two have been friends ever since. (Times photos: Marissa Weiher)
MONROE - Dogs may be man's best friend, but for one Monroe puppy, they are dog's best friend, too. Charlie, now 7 months old, seemed depressed after being adopted by Monroe resident Sherri Fiduccia last year. "The other dogs could tell he had problems, that he was different, so they wouldn't play with him," Fiduccia said.
