Pets are only human, too. Debbie and Tom own a farm and have the biggest hearts for abused creatures one can imagine. They have given shelter to hundreds of animals – from cross-eyed Siamese cats to disabled opossums to the Pickle of the title, a poor little fish that became a nursing case and for whom they finally crafted a comfortable sponge corset. A heartbreaking animadoc mini-drama about the tragedy of being.
