Mommy doesn't pay attention to us anymore! The puppy (now named McKinney) left yesterday for her new home and we were so happy because now we're back to just US! the PACK! the FAMILY! Mommy's all ours again, right? Wrong. SHe told us that someone dropped of an "old gentleman" at the shelter - she was really upset that someone could do that to a senior pup until she heard the story behind this guy - he had been rescued originally in Florida and when the family moved here, they had to go into a rental unit. THe landlord said "no dogs inside the house" so they bought a kennel and run for him and left him outside. He got depressed and refused to eat. His pawrents were so upset that they made Miss Lisa promise NOT to put him down, but to try and find him a home! WHo does Miss Lisa call? You got it. He's not here, but she's been going crazy contacting everyone she knows to find this old guy a new home. Know what? I think she did it - Miss Debbie from Pinehurst knows an 80-year old man who's wife is in a nursing home and who just lost his golden retriever and is desperately looking for a companion. This guy is the perfect match for the old gentleman. He's 9 years old and all he wants to do is lie down next to a person and be scratched and touched. I've gotta admit it - he is a handsome yellow labbie - I guess it wouldn't be too bad having him here for awhile - I'll let you know what happens!!!
