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.

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.
