Fwd: some people......






some people are just......i don't know the word for being rotten with assy-ness.......

someone has abandoned a very old Walker hound by my mailbox.  He's very old and arthritic but a good dog.  i'm not much of a "dog person" but dogs make a bee-line for me.  so do cats, hedgehogs, and pot-bellied pigs.  i've a friend who keeps ferrets and before i leave her house we have to search my coat and my bag to be sure i don't have a stow-away.....or two.  (i wonder if she wonders why her pets want to go live with me?)   i suspect he was abandoned because he's so incredibly old and some asshole just didn't want to deal with it and the inevitable.  he's a very sweet old thing and he tries to wag his tail but his bad hips can't take the torque so if he wags too vigorously his hind-legs give way and he falls.  when he lies down, he grunts.  i have to pick up some dog food that is "age-appropriate" for him....his teeth are in pretty good shape for such an old dog.  anyways, it's another mouth to feed.  but given his age, not for very long.
