Anywho, I digress …

Loosely based on what might have happened. Or not.

Blink and you’ll miss him!

Posted by episode81 on January 15, 2010

Take me home please. Please.

I have been looking at PetFinder a lot recently.  There have been so many small dogs abandoned in California that shelters have been overflowing – quite a few have been shipped off to New York.  Paris Hilton has  a lot to answer for.

Anywho, I digress …

I decided to drop by the Peninsula Humane Society, just to have a look, and snuggle a few lonely cheeksters, you understand.  There were so many little dogs looking for homes it was heartbreaking 😦

There was a tiny, pale, impossibly thin Chihuahua.  I asked if I could see him.  Just to have a look, and a snuggle, you understand.  He was shivering and coughing.  He had a lump on his head from a healing wound.  Poor little guy.  His name was Blinky.  The Adoption Guy told me that Blinky was a stray, had been in the shelter for a couple of weeks, was about 3 years old, was emaciated (weighing in at barely 3 pounds) and kept getting squashed by other dogs.  He had just developed kennel cough and needed to find a warm, quiet and safe home.

Yes, of course I took him home!


I'm home! Woot!

    When he gets his strength back we can have a chihuahua play date. I’ve got a 6 pounder.

    Awwww! As a fan of big dogs, I never thought I’d think a Chihuahua was sweet, but bless his little skinny bottom, Blinky is. And kudos to you for giving that homely little guy a home.
