I am worried about the dogs who live across the street. My 0.46 acres of Suburbia lies at a stop sign, but it is a three way stop. Chewie and Dixie live diagonally across the street. Their house is actually on a corner; the top of their street, which leads out into MY street. Kia the Siberian Husky used to live directly across the street, but sadly, she died recently after a long, happy life. Between Kia, Chewie and Dixie and ME, Pennie (with what little help Sophie adds) we protected our portion of Suburbia. Chewie and Dixie also had the full advantage of living on a corner and free run of their whole property -- their barking could be heard across the neighborhood, as our immediate next-door neighbor so-oft complained.
But I digress.
Chewie and Dixie's family are moving. The family is in foreclosure. We are all most worried, of course, about Chewie and Dixie. Chewie was found as a stray running loose and is an overgrown German Shepherd/Hound mix. There is no telling his age. He is NOT handsome, but if one overlooks the fact that he has zero manners, he is a real lover, a sweet dog. Dixie was adopted as a pup from a shelter and is probably about two; some sort of Labrador Mutt. If they find their way back to a shelter, Dixie probably at least faces "some" chance, as she is still pretty young, and is cute. Chewie is undetermined age, and unless one gets to spend time with him, it is impossible to see his charms.
As our experiences with Oldest Lad's Foster Dog's show; the Pennie Pack is full. I do fine with Sophie, but adding a third dog disrupted the Pack Order.
Chewie and Dixie's Mom "claims" that if she can't find homes for them that she will find a No-Kill Shelter. Sophie and I are praying that is the case, as the family is under a great deal of stress and the "story" seems to change daily. We are also worried about the Four Boys, but at least they will still get Public Education and won't end up, well . . . .

OMD- this is serious! Please keep a close eye on the situation and let me know if I can help in any way. (Besides sharing my home, person, toys, treats and food, of course.)
Awww... that's sad news. This economy stinks more than one of Whitley's farts...
