Here, Have a Martini.....

It was an ordinary Saturday. Doing errands. Stopped at Petco to pick up dog food
and then an extraordinary thing happened! I saw Martini. She was sitting with a dog handler from the animal rescue group in my area. She looked as tho she was going to cry and was shaking so hard she was a blur. Apparently her so-called owner had just come in and dropped her off and left!!!

Now, I usually have the ability to walk past all the dogs up for adoption. I usually look around and say hi and continue on my way. After all I have two dogs and I'd be out of my effing mind to get another dog! Well, consider me out of my mind. I took Martini home.

Martini (I call her Tini) is a 7 year old female pug dog! I agreed to become her foster Mom for the time being, but I have a funny lil feeling I'll be keeping her. She is just tooooo good! She follows me all over the place, sits on my lap, eats like a lil piggie, and has got the sweetest personality I ever saw.

Spud and Tank took an instant liking to her also! She looks a like like Spud!

I haven't had the chance to get pics yet, but I want to take all three of them together and then I'll post it.

I really need my head examined!!! :-)

So nice to see you again!! I haven't been blogging in a very long time either...I just pop in every now and then. I'll come over soon for a visit to your blog!

Ohhh, you have such a tender heart. Tini is one lucky girl!

You did the right thing, and you know it... No regrets, I'm betting...

Kat said...

Sandy, Thanks!! I just couldn't leave her...she was just sooo scarred!! I thought she would die of fright. And I'm not exagerating!

Buff!! Nice to see you! And, no, no regrets (yet). She is doing sooo good! She's trained and goes outside. She stays by my side wherever I go tho...when I leave the house I hear her crying! Well, she'll have to get used to being with the "boys". LOL.

Aw how kind of you, I'm sure you won't regret it. :)

You'll never guess what the word verification is


That's an omen.

That's why I hate going into those places. Always afraid my heart is going to get in the way of my head.

Awww, you and I are sisters separated at birth. I'm so glad you took little Tini home, and of course you'll keep her because not doing so would break four hearts. Five, if you count mine. She sounds like a real sweetheart, and so are you.
