Today marks one year since I encountered an abandoned dog being fostered at my vet’s office. I had brought Tiny in for her yearly checkup and the vet tech mentioned they had the perfect dog for me. I already have that, I thought at the time. While waiting for Tiny’s blood work, I was introduced to ‘mayo’ – a Pomeranian/American Eskimo mix who was brought to the veterinarian office by a good Samaritan a few weeks prior to my visit. It seems this dog was rescued from a deadly situation of dodging moving cars on a busy highway.
Yep, it was love at first sight. After taking a day to consider this new addition to the family, I picked up ‘Mayo’ after work and brought him home.
First thing he did was to eat all of Tiny’s food, since then there has been nothing but hate from Tiny. Buster acts like a perfect gentleman around Tiny. Over the past year, I’ve discovered my precious Tiny channels an inner Cujo when it comes to Buster. Every now and then there are moments of peace between them, and I get to capture it on film.
If you are considering getting a dog or cat, I strongly urge you to think about adopting – you get more than give when adopting an abandoned animal.
I’m looking forward to sharing many more Adoptaversaries with Buster.
UPDATE: It has come to my attention that the Greenazi’s of this world would rather I’d let Buster be put down than to have adopted him. Troglopundit on RWN has the scoop.
