    Well...my contact is at the shelter right now filling out the application to get her out. We have had to fight, make a thousand phone calls and lie through our teeth to pull this off.

    I figured out a way around the system...I am going to transfer Stewie to my MIL's name so that way I have a "free spot" in the hillsborough county computers so we won't have to go through this again. We have joint custody with my in-laws anyhow, so he spends every other week there, which is where he will be when I foster.

    This is absolutely ridiculous that to the county, it seems more appropriate to keep a dog in a shelter with 500 other animals, then to give it to a person in a HOME with 4 dogs. Give me a break.

    I am expecting a phone call in the next 5 minutes that she is out...cross your fingers. Then it is off to the vet for her, and the groomers!!
    I love my Wesley, Cody, Zoey & Stewie

    That is just unbelievable. Makes no sense at all. Just another example of a ridiculous bureaucracy. Everything crossed on this end!!!

    She's out!!!! And she will never have to see the inside of that horrible place again. The guy who got her for me said that she is really sweet, and already seemed relieved to be out. She was soaked in urine, and is now headed to the groomers. Poor little thing. I can't wait to get her!!

    Better to light a candle for one lost dog than to curse the darkness of man's indifference. Saving just one dog won't change the world but it surely will change the world for that one dog.

    Good for you, Monica. I'm glad you were able to work things out to get the dog - even if it meant "sacrificing" Stewie!

    You know who I'd talk to about the quarantine time. But that's me. You've got enough brains to listen to your vet and do whatever he says is best. Are your other dogs vaccinated against kennel cough?

    What will you name this new one?

    How's your girl, Monica? Has she made it home yet? I've thought about you all day. Rescue is not an easy task, it just about wears you out emotionally. So proud of your tenacity. You go girl!
