Yeah… Sunday was just one of those days. The handsome young fella on the left is Bentley, and owner surrendered Rhodesian Ridgeback/Boxer? mix who is so super sweet. I found him on a website for the animal shelter, and my curiosity got the best of me. I went and took him for a walk, and that was it. I wasn’t leaving there without him. He was so skinny….. yes still wagging his tail, politely protesting going back into his “cell” and he turned and his eyes talked to me. They begged me to not put him back in there. I didn’t.
I brought him home, and he was so sweet on the way home. He sat quietly and looked out the window, then laid down and slept the rest of the way. Usually dogs have an adjustment period in a new home…. but he hasn’t had any problems, and not a single bathroom accident. He has been here for about a week. I took him to the vet the next day, and they didn’t notice any problems, but sent me home with some antibiotics in case he developed kennel cough. Well, he did…. and since he has been at my house, he has been quarantined from my other dogs with the exception of a Sunday walk and the nap (pictured above.) I still didn’t let them close to one another, no eating or drinking after one another, etc.
I found him a “forever home” with a family eager to greet him….. until we went to the vet yesterday. While we were there, he started sneezing blood. 😦 The POOR BOY!!! He is now on kennel rest, doctor’s orders, and a stronger antibiotic. He is going back on Friday to see if he is well enough to travel to Vegas on Saturday to go to his forever home. He is so awesome, it is hard to not get too attached.
