Drac, 3 of our 4 doggies are rescues, or as I call them...God dogs cos He sent them here. I got Keoki one day when I walked to the mailbox and this totally adorable black puppy came running up to me. Jilly brought home Miss Seagan when the vet was going to put her down for being a biter (she is not) and Solo found Lil Soot in the park early one morning during a walk.
All of our cats have been God picks too.
I can't work at a shelter either cos I'd cry myself silly, become hysterical, and have 900 animals. But we do support them in other ways. My hat is off to those who can go there and work.
Every week our paper publishes a "Pet of the Week" and every week I have to talk myself down. It helps to come down and review our vet bills.
