I work at a animal hospital and someone was going to put down this 10 year old silky terrier and one of my co-workers were really upset because the dog was in perfect spirit and health. The only issue this dog has is that he has to wear a doggie diaper/wrap around his man hood because he is incontinent. The owner did have a severely mentally handicapped son who was taking his wrap off an letting the dog pee all over him. You just never know a persons life until you are in there shoes that is the issue here, it must be hard to have a son who is older and has such problems and a dog who has problems as well. The situation is terrible but it is what it is.
My co-worker said she would find this dog a home and called the owner to see how they felt because they just dropped the dog off for the euthanasia. They were fine with the whole situation and the money they put towards his euthanasia would go for more testing on his issue and food.
Now to the good part. I have been look for a older companion dog for my grandmother so I agree to take him home and see how he is with everything,vother dogs, food, sharing, playing, grooming. So far he is amazing with everything except is possessive of his toys. My Basenji won't quit with trying to play. Even though he growls and warns her she just keeps on going and going and going and is not scared of him. He is getting used to her and her to his growls but its been hours now and she wants to know why won't he play like a Basenji with her. Also I never hear her baroo as much as she has today. She is soooo consistent with her bouncing around and running into him its hilarious. I love her but she needs to respect her elders hahah!
Thought I'd share the news. Have a good nite everyone! A barroo to you from Dolce!
