Got to play with Frank again - frank was the yorkie last week who tried to get eaten by a Pitbull. He looked so much better this week and just had a spring in his step... and actually got a little sassy with Cujo, the attack Golden on our path... :D
Then there was JP, a really sweet puppy, unknown breed, but absolutely beautiful coat..JP got his final walk in at 26th street because as I headed back inside teh caretakers loaded him in the van to go to North Clyborn to get adopted and find a forever home.. perfect pup for someone who's got a litle energy - JP seemed to be happiest when I was jogging.. yeah run fat ass run :) Good puppy... :D
Barney, a sweet shy little Lhasa Apso -or however you spell it.... I spent about 5 -10 minutes croaching in front of his cage, with my hand out as he sniffed and licked and sniffed again and decided if I was a good human or a bad human.. My guess is -he's been around too many bad humans... but he figured i was ok, and had treats so off we ent.
Cinderella... a little poodle who was found abandonded by wandering the streets, and caught by Animal Care and Control... That's pretty much death row for puppies, and where PAWS gets teh majority of their dogs from... Shaved because she had matted fur.. but sweet, and licky.. and really friendly.
Eskimo - a 10 month old, Alaskan Malamute, with the most mesmorizing brown eyes... brown dog and strong... Eskimo probably weighed about 65lbs now, they get to be about 90lbs I've read.. and are built for endurace not speed... that I can tell.. our entire walk -and she walked longer than most of the other dogs I had and pulled on the leash the entire time... crossing the street with her was a challenge...I was reading earlier that these dogs are also fast.. and shoudl never be allowed off leash because tthey will just keep running.
Whomever turned this dog in, I'd bet did so because they couldn't control it because they didn't take the time for obedience lessons... this dog needed some...
There were two others that I just can't remember their names.... sweet puppies all of them...
