Thanks to all for the kind words and support. I really do appreciate it.

Called everyone I could think of this afternoon, and found five couples that are willing to take the dog. He has to stay there for a week to see if the owner comes forward, but after that people are lining up to get him.

He WILL go to a GOOD home.

I don't mean to imply that this occurs very often. It is actually only the third time since 1996, but that is three times too many. It always makes me mad.

Again thanks to all for the advice and concern.

I adopted a dog who had been turned loose in the country -- found him on a Friday after school, running between the school busses. Knew that if I didn't take him home, I'd find him dead on the road when I came back to school the next Monday. Turned out to be the sweetest dog. Funny looking, though. Cross between a chocolate lab and a dachshund!! Obedient, smart, and I couldn't chase him off with a stick, now. When he first came, I had to carry him in and out of doorways!! He'd been kicked in or out quite a bit, I guess. There is no doubt in my mind that Toby would protect me or my family to the death. How anybody could have abandoned this dog is a mystery.

Not me. I don't like much of anybody, dog or human. Except maybe Salmoneye and Phyllis.

Are you saying...    Posted 01-03-2004 at 10:28:23       [Reply]  [No Email]
That we qualify as 'flat-nosed butt-sniffers' too?

LOL, that's how I am, also, but usually not brave enough to say it!

Oh, I can see the chaos with one barking on the inside and one whining on the outside, driving you crazy! I think we talked about how Lucy is like Tip, they want you all to themselves, they make you a one dog human, or suffer the guilt trip, lol! I understand how you feel about animals being abused, some people don't think they have true emotions. I have known a lot of dogs I like a lot better than a lot of people I have met. I have been waiting for Lesa to get online all night, but she must be busy with the two litters of puppies, feeding times and all. I wanted to know if she had talked to our friend about the puppy being given up. I worry about things like that. I let things get to me.

Anyway, I am glad that you went ahead and took the bull by the horns as they say, and ensured the dog a home. I know you were sitting there just a thinking about that dog, and couldn't get it off your mind, now you will be at peace with yourself about it. :)

Got any new pics of Lucy? :)
