Landen and 4 Hound Puppies
July 11, 2009
|I had the privilege today to meet Jennifer, who works at the local shelter in Roxboro, NC. She has the first-hand knowledge of stuff we all would prefer not to know. The shelter is at capacity. A few weeks ago there was an owner-surrender of puppies. Mama dog lived chained to a stake and the puppies were just running loose. One had been hit by a car, but the owner brought the remaining 4 to the pound. With no room available, the pups would have been gassed that same day, but Jennifer loaded the brood in her car and took them home until a place could be found for them, and transport arranged. Jay Willis with Thunder's Angels Dog Rescue in Philadelphia offered to take them and get them adopted. Pilot's N Paws provided the transport.|

Love that puppy smell.
Although, somewhere over Quantico, Cheri and I looked at each other and whiffed the air. The dreaded realization that icky cleanup would be required upon landing was premature though. The smell dissipated, and it will forever remain a mystery which one let 'er rip. It was a real doozy though.
