Shocked and Saddened

I made a trip down to PAWS today. I wanted to extend my thanks to the Animal Control officer that came out on a Sunday to capture the two Dobermans that were running loose in the neighborhood and wouldn't even let me stand on my front porch. I also had a small collection of coffee cans to donate. They keep pet food in them, as do I here at home.

I can't go to PAWS without at least going through the rooms and hoping that every critter finds a good home. There were quite a few blue dots on the cage markers, so I guess those are the lucky ones so far.

As I was leaving, a man and a young teen walked in, father and son I assumed. The teen was carrying a very little dog. They walked to the counter to surrender the ball of fluff. When asked why they were surrendering, the adult said, "We don't need him anymore." The staff member behind the counter was as shocked as I and repeated his statement. He said, "Yes, we don't need him anymore, we do a lot of traveling....." How much traveling do you do when you have a school aged child?

This adorable little ball of fluff is a 6-month old, tea cup maltese. I wanted to cry, but then thought, lucky dog. Someone will fall in love with this little darling and pamper him the way he should be. I don't know if the father was trying to punish the teen or what the real reasons for surrendering the puppy were.

Best of luck little ball of fluff. I hope your "forever home" treats you well.

I wonder if they'd do a trade - the Maltese for my dumb little dog?

And it is sad that the dog was so easily cast aside. Now that kid has the idea that it's o.k., too.

It could not have been more than 5 or 6 pounds of fluff. Considering the amount of hair, it might not even have been that. My smallest cat is bigger than that pup.

I would take him in a hearbeat, but then so would Sid I'm afraid...

Yes sad. But I'm sure the little one will find a better home.

Oh my gosh. I want him now. I feel so sad for the kid!!! Having to give up his dog. Also, I didn't know that about the coffee cans. I always am accumulating them. Maybe I will drop some off and peek at the dogs.

I would go get him in an instant. But I don't think I"m allowed to bring anymore living things into our home after the last one proved to be such a handful. I hope some one adopts him soon!

This is off topic, but, I noticed you mentioned the Travler over on another blog? Was there some blog entry surrounding that newspaper lately? If so, can you direct me to it?
