... what's wrong with me?
Do I have a wart on my nose that FM hasn't told me about?
Am I cross eyed?
Do I smell funny?
Do I look plain?
Do I not seem sweet enough? Inquisitive enough? Pay attention to you enough?
Are you drawn away from me because you can still see bones instead of muscle?
Today was my fourth adoption event, and NO ONE liked me!! I only got one or two "Oh what a pretty dog..." comments. The entire time I was making the shelter staff at this event giggle and laugh and comment yet again on how they are surprised that I have not been placed yet. The first adoption event that I did? Everyone was all over me!! Not anymore! What's the dealy-o!
Do I have bird breath? I did catch one the other day, ya know.
Am I too big?
Look like I'd be a boring dog?
Do I seem not-so-smart? Smarter than you'd like?
So next Saturday we'll be at a different pet store with about three other doggies and hopefully someone will get adopted.
Today we only had one adoption out of 9 dogs and 3 cats. It was a lovely pup named Whirlaway that went to a home with an older couple. The old man obviously had a very kind heart and knew a thing or two about dogs. We all knew that Whirlaway was a very lucky pup and they were going to make eachother very, very happy. Another dog has a "maybe". They have to convince their grandpa about getting the pup, but I think it will be easy to do. FM was very happy that she had helped get Petfinder all updated yesterday because she was able to tell these people to look at the petfinder page to show off the pup they were interested in. :)
And another lady, whom FM has seen many times, came by looking again. She had been interested in a dog, about a month ago, who we all thought had been adopted, but it turned out that it had fallen through! So she has plans to come to the shelter and see the dog she had had her heart set on.... I think it will end up well!!
But little ol' me did not generate much interest. Disappointing again how thin the crowds were! Where is everyone lately?!? Hmph!
Now I sound like a broken record: Maybe next weekend????
