Soooo, DH and I have not been able to catch the little abandoned doggie :mad::mad: that was dropped off down the road a couple days ago. DH even went to the pound yesterday to see if he had been turned in. Nope.
Unfortunately for DH, he made the grave error of mentioning the two JRT mix litters that were imprisoned. Upon arriving, I decided I would take all dogs and the two kittens. LOL LOL
Anyhoo, after much dithering, we think we will take the poor scared border collie mix when she comes available. There is an adoption to-do going on today at the shelter, so we plan to take the BC if she is not adopted, or any other dog that was not chosen. Yes, to add to our 6 dogs.
We are insane, I tell ya, INSANE.
Thanks, fellow enablers. :D

The universe is happier when the dogs are balanced out with cats-so you will need to bring home kittens also.

Doggie down the road - a large dog crate with dog food in it? Several days of feeding this way, then rig it close somehow?

One can never have too many dogs, LOL. I am curious though, on the reference to the JRT litters, do you mean at the shelter, or were they dropped off too?

Good on ya! One can never have too many dogs!

Our stupid county planning commission just turned down a request from a guy that wants to build a no kill shelter and rehab facility. In a rural agricultural area with no nearby houses. :no:

Idiots.

Our county pound is antiquated and overcrowded and most dogs don't even get 7 days there. They make no attempt at adopting dogs out and won't even call owners whose dogs show up at the pound with ID on their collars.

Munching-
over the last 20 years, we've owned 7 BCs. Wonderful dogs. The shelter BC is not available until the 23rd, otherwise, she'd be here on the couch.

Dawglover-What total idiots-that's a nice term for the "shelter" where you live. Poor dogs and poor owners.

wait, wait, you never answered the question about the JRT pups........they were at the shelter already??.......and you went and got multiple animals???????:eek:

wow. my local SPCA won't allow more than one adoption at a time, and no more than 4 in a 5 yr span.........

and those JRT mixes would have people lining up for them here, they always do..........i got one a few yrs ago, luckily happened to be in there when the box they were dumped in was discovered, so i got my application in first, and had first choice...............there was about 14 other people hoping i didn't take one so they could move on up the waiting list......but i digress.......NEED to see your new pups....i LOVE having a herd of doggies with me

Hmmm, I posted yesterday but I lost my connection...
OK-I didn't take the JRTs and/or the rest of the dogs. I just WANTED to! This shelter allows 2 adoptions a month and do let dogs go for free if they aren't adopted.

We pick up the BC on Wed. I guess they hold dogs for a week or so to see if owners come to get them. I think her name will be Willow but I am open for suggestions!

If anyone is interested, the shelter is Washington Co. Animal Shelter outside of Abingdon. It is about 3 miles off of I-81/exit 19. I don't recall the adoption fee, and I think they have a voucher or rebate for spaying/neutering.

Uh, when it rains, it pours?
DH caught little abandoned doggie this morning, per my notification phone call. :D The dog catcher drove up just as DH was getting doggie in the humane trap.
Wed. we go to pick up Willow. That will be 8 dogs, now.
I definitely need to change my screen name!

No! No more animals! No more horses!
Until maybe we move to our property down the road and set up a proper kennel?
