Re: Pets and Bricks

Most of our friends are stretched thin with fosters or adoptees. We do have
something set up with one of my egg customers who does animal rescue, but
she's very pressed for space, too. And the older we get, it seems the older
our friends are, too, and less likely to be able to cope well.

I used to feel comfortable knowing that my folks would take care of our
guys, and vice versa. Now, Mom's dead and Dad's 91. Not likely. And my
sister-in-law doesn't even want to think about mixing her cats and our dogs.

Ah, well, we're trying to limit to no more than 2 at a time now, just in
case - but you know that we both have "sucker" stamped across our foreheads.
That's how we got Webster. He was an adult dog and in such bad shape that
the folks at the vets office knew he couldn't be put out for regular
adoption, so they called us. We had him for 16 years.
I wouldn't have missed him for anything either, though he was such a Houdini
dog that he was hard to keep safe. And he kicked hard when he was sleeping!
