Floofiness
I hate this icky, cold, icy weather. I really do. >.< Just got back home from running errands, but I've just mailed off a bunch of packages, so I'm happy. I like sending out mail. ^^ I like getting mail even more. :) And with any luck, I'll now have jakebe to write snail mail to. *smiles and wags*

I have yet another dog. The doorbell rang at 11am, and one of our neighbors, Kathy, was standing at the other end of the door with her little dog, with some other woman and her big dog. I recognized the big guy right away as Decker. He's a big floofy 12-year-old King Shepherd cross, and I've seen him at the dog park a few times. In fact I was just walking down the block a few days earlier, and he was off leash and came to say hi to me. Very sweet dog. His owner, though, was in tears because she has to move to Detroit tomorrow and can't take him with her. She apparently tried looking for someone to take him, but no one seems to want an old hero dog (he saved a kid when he was younger). So she was scheduled to put him to sleep today because she didn't think she had any other options.

But then Kathy ran into her while walking her dog, and recommended her to me. The lady was absolutely distraught, but so relieved that I agreed to take him, and she gave me $40 as thanks and a big bag of dog food for Decker. She said if I could find him a good new home she would be eternally grateful, since he's been such a loyal friend to her for years. So now Decker is pacing about my room, missing his owner, but hopefully he'll be okay within a few days. Although because of how old he is, I'm worried the stress might be a bit much for him, but we'll see how it goes. Meanwhile, my guys are getting along with him just fine, although I'm keeping Calvin separated from him because they're both not neutered and I don't trust Calvin at all.

So, he’s free to a good home. Anyone local wanting to adopt a dog? :)

Ooo, could you, please? That would be a big help. This old guy is just too sweet. I'd keep him myself if I could, but four dogs is a bit much for me to handle... X.x

That's really nice of you to find homes for dogs. You took it upon yourself to find a home for him and that's admirable. Best of luck with finding him a home! :)

Thanks Brokken! I'm begining to turn into my mom, only she takes in stray cats. One of these days I would just love to start my own doggie care centre. It's a goal I'm slowly working on. *snugs*

(earperks!) Anything for me in that latest batch? ;)
I'm so glad you saved that old puppy - it's the saddest thing when pets have to be put down just 'cause they don't have a home! I really, really hope he finds a good one! =)

Well, I couldn't seem to find your e-mail address anywhere. O.o So I kinda had to make a post. Hopefully you get this. And I didn't post up my e-mail address because I don't really want people I don't know having access to it.

Yeah, I only get on my general AIM list once in a blue moon. I usually end up hiding on a separate private list because too many people decide they're going to maul me at once, and I just can't handle that. X.x But lately I've been trying to get on AIM more often so that I can actually talk to folks. I'm usually on in the evenings if I'm on at all.

And I just noticed you're from Hungary... my mom was born there. :P *waves*
