Max, Rescued German Shepherd in Hamilton, OH

If you’re a regular reader, you know I try to meet and take a picture of dogs I meet when I travel.  Well, this weekend I was visiting my mom in Hamilton, Ohio, and got to meet Max in the parking lot of the Bob Evans there.

Max’s family told me that their neighbor had moved out & left Max behind, apparently to fend for himself, so they had adopted him.  Apparently, they’re taking good care of him, as he has gained 10 pounds since they’ve had him.

Looking good, Max!  (And my apologies to your family – I promised them I’d have this posted on Sunday, but life intervened.)

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!

Riding the Rails with K.C.

I just love it when I can refer you to one of my favorite blogs, the one associated with The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC.

They recently carried the story of KC, an Australian Shepherd / Border Collie mix who was found riding on top of a boxcar! Animal control officers used a forklift to lower the dog to the ground, and he is now up for adoption from the Mississippi Animal Rescue League.

Wouldn’t you seek custody of the dog?

A man in Kirkland, WA backs out of his driveway the other day, and stops to find a beautiful Cavalier King Charles Spaniel with a note attached to his collar.  The note asks that someone take care of the beloved Mr. B, who was abandoned after a divorce when neither parent wanted the dog.

What a heartbreaking story…but it has a happy ending.  Mr. Wu, the man who found the dog, took Mr. B to work, where he has since been adopted.

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!
