Arrival Story: One day when my wife and I were volunteering at Petsmart a lady came in with a tiny (1.5lb.) puppy which she had adopted the previous day. She said it had diarrhea and vomiting, and her vet said it had heart murmer and would not live long. Through her tears she accepted the return of the adoption fee. The pet adoption people handed the tiny puppy to my wife to hold and complained that they had no one to foster it. Of course she heard herself say, "I'll foster her."
Bio: After we brought the dog home she went into our 8lb. cat's den and dragged the cat out by the ear and proceeded to lick Cleo sloppy wet in the middle of the living room. Thus we named her Attila--no fear. We took her to the vet recommended by the shelter, guess what? no heart problems. Attila was sick because she had been spayed too young and had been given Revolution which side effects were obvious. To make a long story short we decided to keep her.
