Comet is spending his Christmas Eve Day playing with other dogs in a big yard. This is a pretty big deal since yesterday he was on the euthanasia list at a county shelter. I'd like to think Comet got his Christmas wish.
Maybe a bath wasn't part of his wish, but he got one anyway. Now he's looking forward to extra grand meals to help put more meat on his bones.
The lady who brought Comet to the county shelter said she'd found him running loose in a state park. He was skeletal and desperate for attention. She took him home overnight but couldn't keep him. She did tell county staff that he was good with small children, as well as her dog and cat.
But in spite of all that, Comet's odds of getting out of the county shelter weren't that good. He was a big, black dog whose ribs stood out. No one wanted him.
At the last minute, though, we found room due to some recent adoptions. I picked him up this morning and delivered him to his new foster home.
What some people don't realize is that when they adopt a dog from a rescue group or a "no kill" shelter, they actually save two lives: the one they adopted and the one that will take the place of the adopted dog.
Another of my foster moms took in a 4 month old pup from a different county shelter today. She also had room because of a recent adoption.
Among our recent adoptions were two dogs who've waiting too long for permanent homes: Cici the senior corgi/sheltie mix and Addie, the hound mix. They are in their new homes for Christmas. Here's Cici.
And here's Addie.
Their adoptions mean we can save other dogs at risk.
