Maybe someone over this animal control officers head will be more welcoming.
Honestly, if I was closer, I would just go down and adopter her out of that place.
That way, I would know she was in good hands.
I would if I could get there before she is adopted to someone else. Puppies often adopt quickly from here. I was out of town all day yesterday and will not be able to break away from work until later in the week. The BRAT coordinator knows this, so hopefully they will let me know if they need my help getting her.
That is exactly why I contacted BRAT instead of the shelter, because I wasn't sure of the shelter's policy on dealing with rescues. I wanted to let BRAT do what BRAT does and also be able to remain anonymous to the shelter just in case. I know there is at least one other BRAT volunteer in the area as well. Hopefully something can be done so that the little girl isn't adopted out and then sent back to the shelter. At least with BRAT she would be properly screened as well as the adopters.
The story I got on Sawyer from BRAT was that he was purchased by an elderly couple in their 80s. I read a thread on here about someone asking about a Basenji in a pet store and what the pet store told them….small, no barking, clean, low/non shedding....sounds like a great dog for someone in their 80s. Too bad that isn't what they really bought. He sheds, he is very vocal, he is very agile, and he is dominate and stubborn:rolleyes: But I love him to death.
I love the picture of her leaning on the desk going for the pens. We always make sure that we move the couch, chairs and anything else they can jump up on away from the desk…...but the other day while I was working on the computer Sawyer just jumps up on the desk right next to me with no effort and starts sniffing the pens and paper and looks at me like "What?'
Great for you for trying to quit. If cold turkey doesn't work, don't get discouraged. I had to take Zyban and use cigarettes with decreasing level of nicotine to quit, I think they were a brand called Quest. It has been almost 5 years and I still want a cigarette sometimes. Hang in there.
Yesterday (29 Dec) was Wyatt's 1st birthday. We celebrated with a trip to the dog park where he got to race around with a greyhound and then some brave (or suicidal?) squirrels made an apprearance. He had a delicious bone shaped dog treat sandwich with some Merrick wetfood inside and he got a stuffed squirrel.
