I have one big restriction in my puppy rescue...one at a time. That was all well and good until this past week. I was all set to take Kelly the little cow-girl. (Seriously, am I the only one that sees the resemblance?) Anyway, I had pulled her from the animal control in Greenville, SC after another rescue failed to pick her up on time. She looked so small and scared in the photo, and I really felt sorry that she had been waiting in vain for so long for a rescue that was not coming.
And then I saw the pictures of little Blackberry. The same age as Kelly, but only 10lbs. He was found as a stray at the Blackberry Public Dump, and dropped off at the animal control center. Such a sad life for a young pup. So I pulled him, too. Here's what he looked like at Greenville Animal Control:
I put out an email to some of my fellow CODAR fosters to see if anyone could take him, and I got a confirmation that someone would take Blackberry. Unfortunately, on the day the transport arrived she decided not to take him due to some unforeseen medical conditions with another pup in her household. Joel looked at me and said "You better not be bringing two foster dogs home." So I spent the night at Mom & Dad's house.
Well, that all worked out OK because Mom knew a gal from the yacht club who was really wanting a nice, sweet, big galoot of a dog (which was Kelly to a T) and she loved her right away. Here's a few pictures of Kelly and Blackberry at Mom & Dad's house:
A happy ending for little Miss Kelly the CowGirl.
Blackberry stayed with us in Atlantic Highlands, but not for too long. He is at home with his forever family now, living in beautiful Fair Haven and travelling to horse shows with his family on the weekends. Spoiled puppies rule!
