Cara's exposed, sensitive skin could not handle much sunlight, so she had to be kept in the kitchen while she healed, to avoid the rest of Hernández's bright, sunny apartment. Whenever Hernández did take Cara outside for short periods of time, people would stare openly at the duo. "Everyone looked like it was wrong, trying to help this dog," she said.
Yet, it was that very same compassion that gave Cara the ability to live her best possible life. The Cara from six months ago is nothing like the Cara whom Hernández still cares for today.
