Giving the dog away for free.....

Last night at around 6:30 I received a voice mail from an older lady named Phyllis. Her dog passed away and she was looking for another dog. She had gotten my phone number from the vet office.

We all know older people and how they can talk so I didn't call her back right away as I had a lot going on last night. By the way looks like Midget is getting a home on Saturday :-)

I called her back around 8:30pm. I talked to her for a little while and suggested a dog named Robin for her. A 7 year old JRT mix who is housebroken, walks well on a leash and loves to snuggle. Phyllis then asked me how much would it cost. I told her $100 for Robin. She said "Oh ok. Well I will have to wait till I get my social security check."

OMG! I thought NO WAY! That just totally broke my heart. I said don't worry about it, if you like Robin she is yours.

I called her back today and asked her what she had for the dog. She said she has bowls, toys, leash and collar. I am going to buy a dog bed, food and get her a tag and take the dog over there on Saturday.

I also asked her if she has any family in the area. She said her son is in Texas but her daughter in in Elyria. So, I got her daughters number and spoke with her today to make sure that her mom getting a dog was OK. Sue, the daughter said it was fine. Her mom is very lonely and she needs a dog to keep her company. I gave Sue all my contact information so that if anything ever happens or she needs anything concerning the dog to call me. Also, let her know that I do want my dog back if for some reason her mom can no longer keep the dog.

So, I am going over there on Saturday around 11am with Robin.
