Then on Mother's Day, I stopped in at the local Petco to make a couple of new tags. I could hear Tarzan barking even before I could see him. I could hear the stress in his bark. I walked over to the area where the adoptions were located. Once he saw me he quieted down and started wagging his tail. Everyone was happy to see me because it meant quiet in the store! I guess the "mother" in me took over and I brought him back to Swampy Paws again. However, this time he will not be going back to the shelter. If we can't find him the perfect home, then he will just stay here.
My son reminds me that we are getting far too many dogs that may just end up being permanent residents. I think I will have to do a big marketing campaign asking people to sponsor a dog. Basically it will mean an adoption without taking the dog home! I can send regular pictures, emails, and take the dog to visit their sponsor. They could even have the dog for the weekend! All the sponsor has to do is contribute toward the dog's care. We are in need of additional kennels so perhaps someone could donate a chain link kennel if they could not have a full time dog. Oh well.. my mind is racing about all the possibilities.
