Sometimes all anything or anyone needs is a little TLC.
Take, for example, the Volkswagen above my father is trying to sell.
No, really. Please take it.
This is a perfectly wonderful vehicle that just needs some attention. Someone with love and patience
and a friend who owns a body shop could really bring her back to life.
I hope this same Someone likes bird nests, because one is conveniently located over the driver's side visor. But that's not what I'm here to talk about today.
This car, which sits at the end of our lane, is for sale, and there is someone out there right now who would make the perfect owner. He or she just doesn't know it yet.
Unrelated to Volkswagens but along the lines of providing attention and care to things which need a new home, I'd like to help spread the word about an urgent need for foster homes for some dogs who are being displaced in the near future.
Commenter Bay Browder and his wife volunteer at a local shelter that will close at the end of this month. They recently sent me a list of 40--that is forty--dogs who need homes. Ideally these would be permanent homes but if you're able to provide foster care that is just as valuable at this point.
Among some of the many dogs available are:
Margo is a 1-year old 35 lb. tri-color spayed female hound. She has very long legs and a face that will make people look twice at her. She came in with her brother and misses him since he went to rescue. She needs more work on a leash. This is one perfect miniature fox hound. Precious! Her size will make her adoptable even in a city.
Bonnie is a tiny 20 pound tri-color beagle spayed female probably about 5 years old. Bonnie’s skin condition has kept her at the shelter far too long. It would probably go away if her stress level was reduced. She is also a bit shy about loud noises and loud people. She is an adorable size and an adorable girl. She is crate trained.
Bandana is a beautiful neutered Boxer mix with brindle markings. He has lots of fun and unconditional love to offer a loving ,active forever family.
Christie is a beautiful black and tan coon hound, about 3 years old and has been spayed. She is also crate trained.
If you are able to help in any way, please let me know.
Also, if anyone is interested in a killer goose with his own Facebook page, there's one named Gustav up for adoption as well. Just don't tell my mother. Among his redeeming traits are (insert the sound of crickets here). Needs lots of training. Good luck with that.
