Yes… I am insane. I rescued another dog yesterday, but I swear, there is no more room at the inn!
I was downloading the application to get Jack his dog license and noticed that the county animal control shelter has a “pet inventory” list. So, of course, I looked at it and noticed that they had an “owner turn in” border collie. Animal control shelters aren’t renowned for giving animals a lot of time to find a new home so I decided to take a camera with me so that I could take pictures of said dog and post her on a border collie rescue I frequent and find her a home. Well, I went to visit her and of course she’s gorgeous and I was informed by the very friendly and caring gentleman who was obviously the caregiver to the animals that she had no time left and that, because of space issues, as soon as they got four more dogs she would be euthanized and that he was expecting 3-4 more dogs before the day was over. So, I paid her fee and raced off to get my prepay spay certificate from my veterinarian and raced back to pick her up and was informed that in the time it took me to do all of that they had received 20 more dogs. That’s 20…. T-W-E-N-T-Y. So basically every dog I saw there is now gone… except for sweet Meg (and a Sharpei mix that was being adopted when I picked up Meg).
We are, of course, keeping her as long as we can fulfill her needs. She is a no jive, vibrating, into everything Border Collie with a capital “B.”
So, without further ado, here she is, our little Apple Blossom, Meg.
