RE: pet rescue


My nephew just took in a dog that found him while he was hiking.
Funniest looking animal I have seen in a while. He seems to be a cross
between a golden retriever and a basset hound. Basset body but hair from
the golden. Huge head, too big for the body, but maybe he'll grow into
it. They think he was maybe 5 months old when someone abandoned him out
in the desert. He had a collar on...it was so small it had cut into his
neck and left a huge open sore. What people do, sheesh.

One of these days I might just get to adopt an animal.  To date mine
have
always adopted me.  The last time I thought about adopting a small dog
Otis
showed up.  He weighed about 7 pounds when he arrived (at 10 weeks); at
2
years he's up to 70 pounds.
