Well, as most of you know, my mom is the intake coordinator at the rescue I came from, Homward Bound. She works with people down south in TN, KY, GA & FL to get dogs out of high kill shelters and up here so they have a second chance at finding forever homes. So, in order to get some new dogs in before their clinic on Saturday morning, the transport came in at 5am. Yep... 5am. So my mom was up and out of the house before I even woke up from my beauty sleep. She asked if I wanted to go outside before she left or if I wanted to wait until dad woke up.... I just looked at her and gave her a "are you out of your mind" grumble and went back to sleep. She's crazy. So, here's the #1 reason why mom ditched me on Saturday...
|This is Julia... her and Joyce are the sisters to Ulysses and Sherman.|
They're about 8 weeks old... and really fluffy!
|They like to snuggle together.|
|Can you find all 4 puppies?!|
|And, this is Boe. He's a 7 month old Cattle Dog.|
|This is Brother|
|And this is Sister.|
They're doxie mixes.
|This is Edge... he was lised as a pitbull, but mom said when you see him in person, there's nothing pit about him!|
So many dogs get labled as a pit when they're really not. He looks it a bit in this picture, not even close in person!
|This is Leon. He was the one that mom was super excited to meet! He's even more handsome in person and a totall lover!!!! He gave mom lots of kisses and kept coming over to her for some good scratches!|
|This is Micky, he's around 8 months old and he's a Mountain Curr mix. Super sweet and calm doggie! He's good with kids and great with other dogs. Just an all around wonderful guy! He's also smaller than he looks in this picture, BOL!|
All of the dogs above were scheduled to be euthanized... even the puppies.So, although mom ignored me the whole day to play with these guys, I completely forgive her because I know it was very much appreciated by these pooches! Plus, I got to hang with Oreo, except during the time when she was at the adoption clinic. There was a guy who totally love her, but his kids fell in love with Leon, so Leon found his forever home on Saturday! So did Sherman and Joyce and some of the other dogs that have been with Homeward Bound before this transport.
|You just lay right there, Oreo... and I'll sit on you so I can get a |
better look of the neighborhood...
|Ok... I guess you can look too.|
|I see the car mom... let's get in it and GO!|
And guess why she's still living with me.......... She barked at their neighbors and they couldn't walk her on a leash, so they returned her. Well, mom walks me AND Oreo at the same time... all you have to do is make sure she knows YOU'RE walking HER and it's not the other way around. Mom explained to these people that the issues they're returning her for were easily fixable and even offered to pay for the behaviorist to go over and work with them. They wanted no part of fixing the problem and just wanted to get rid of her. Poor Oreo... so I was happy to have her back and I was super happy that she didn't have to deal with those stupid people anymore. The only dog they deserve to have is a stuffed one.
Here you go, Oreo adopter failures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
|This is the only dog you should ever have.|
Ya big dummies.
