Arrival Story:
Saw pictures online of adoptable dogs at the local dog pound. I had a talk with my son about the responsibility of owning a dog. All was understood. So I went to the pound (aka death row for 70 percent of the inhabitants) to pick him up. After I filled out the paperwork and had him in my arms, they said I couldn't have him because he was to be featured in a promotion for the pound. Yeah. He's a cutie. But something else seemed to be going on. An elderly lady said that someone else wanted the pup. A technician there acted resentful that I would get him. Odd. So I went to work and wept on the way. The secretary from the pound later called me at work and said that she had worked things out. I dashed over, paid the fee and got out of there before anything could change. I had planned to leave him at the dog groomers for a bath because he stank from the pound but his kennel cough was severe and they would not let him in. So I took him to the vet and they, too, would not let him inside. A vet came outside and gave him his starter shots in the parking lot. We felt like lepers. Then I took him home and made him a little nest with food and water on the screened in porch - away from our other dog. I didn't want him to infect her. He was coughing lots. When my son got home, I'd given the pup a bath and he was improving a little. Son walked up to pup and pup romped to son. They were so cute. Tarr hangs out at Boxley, Arkansas, running free and happy on the farm.

Bio:
My kids, being kids, named him Tard because he was clumsy as a pup and not too swift. I call him Tarr and think he is smart and very trainable. As time goes on, he has become more my dog.
