To quote The Simpsons:
Homer: Marge, Im confused. Is this a happy ending, or a sad ending?The little ones still dont have homes. But the good people at BlueHAWK ** no-kill shelter have offered to take them in. There they are going to get fixed, get checked head-to-toe by a vet, get all their shots, get microchipped, and whoever wants to adopt them has to go through a screening process so the pups are NEVER picked up under similar circumstances again.
Marge: Its an ending. Thats enough.
So, its not a 'happy ending' (loving home with a college kid who loves to run, or with a mom with two kids that love to play ball...), not a 'sad ending' (one group last night told me to take the brindle on a run at the park, give him a cheese burger, and put him down), but its an ending.
They will find a place. And theyll be taken care of in the mean time, surrounded by other playful dogs. Not a bad deal for two puppies who were starving and dying of thirst in 95 degree weather this time last week.
And it is a happy ending, on my end. I learned a valuable lesson, one that luckily didnt end traumatically, and Ive found a great organization I can volunteer for. Im going to help check out the homes of potential adoptors in the OKC area (make sure they have a fence, house isnt a dog-hazard-pig-sty, etc) and Ill help with adoption days at PetSmart! YAY!
So what little sanity I had this time last week has been crammed back into my head, and we will now return to our regular scheduled programming!
