RE: Pets and Bricks

This is where friends can be invaluable.  We have a pact with our
dearest friends that if something should happen to either couple, the
other will adopt and cherish that couples' pet's).  It's nice to have
peace of mind in that regard.

The other dog was a purebred Dachshund, about 4 years younger. She was
adopted shortly after being brought to the shelter. Dreyfuss was left
for several months.

I hope that the other dog found a good home. Our humane society doesn't
have follow-up. Though they request that a dog be returned if it doesn't
work out, there is no law. I know of more than one dog that was loved by
its foster family, and was turned in to animal control, which only holds
for 3 days. The dogs were dead before the foster  families had a chance
to re-home them.

What kind of a lesson? Like, "we'll buy you a toy, but if you displease
us, you're out the door??"  I dunno. Maybe it was the kid's chance to
express their feelings and grieve.
