I found Mulligan on the Internet at petfinder.com. He had been rescued from a high-kill shelter with just hours to spare before he was to be euthanized, and he was being fostered outside of Atlanta. When I inquired about adopting him, I was turned down because we live too far away.
But I couldn't get the dog - then named Cornbread - out of my mind. After a week or so, I sent another e-mail asking about him. This time, Donna faxed me an application, and we then talked on the phone. She said she had a sense that I was going to be his forever mom.
My husband and I went the next day to meet the dog and pass inspection, and we came home with him. Cornbread snuggled in my arms most of the trip home, as if he knew that everything was going to be O.K. from now on.
We renamed him Mulligan. In golfing terminology, a mulligan is a second shot, a "do-over". And we are the "do-over" family.
We chose January 16th for his birthday because that's the day we got him, and the vet believes he's a year old.
Mulligan SMILES! And he can also do a vertical leap like nobody's business (that's the "Wheaten greetin'!")
