Don’t you just love a happy ending?

I almost burst into tears when I heard that an adoption application had come in for Abe, the shepherd-hound I fell in love with at the Humane Society of Skagit Valley. I’d made a video of him because I just knew he would make a wonderful pet for someone, if only they could see past the bars of his kennel.

A fellow volunteer shared the video and Friday, a man from Salt Lake City flew to Seattle to meet Abe and drive him home.

Off to his happily ever after!

While Abe was having the best day ever, there are still lots of dogs still looking for their families. I wound up walking four dogs instead of my usual three, because I just couldn’t leave without spending time with Clarkson, known at the shelter as Clyde.

Clark/Clyde breaks my heart because he asks for so little. Just give him a yard, and some tennis balls. Look how happy he is!

Just another vicious pit bull attack

I won’t link to Time Magazine’s offensive, biased, and badly reported article about pit bulls, but instead offer this rebuttal.

And these pictures of Miss Maddie, available at the Humane Society of Skagit Valley. Maddie had a home for a year and then her family moved away and didn’t take her. Who could leave behind a Maddie?
