What a crazy day we had yesterday. It started out when the bloggers over at Two Special Wires and White Dog Diary sent me this email:
OK out there I need help saving Eskie pup set to euthanized Wed. We'll adopt him;have a ride for him to ABQ. we need someone to go to LA Animal Control and rep us. LAAC says, we must go today with $100 (cash or check...I canPayPal you), a CA ID and put a hold on the dog. THEN they give a pickup date. Friends will drive from San Diego to get him and bring himbut can't do two trips to LA (Lancaster). HELP SAVE THIS BOY
I hemmed and hawed. I wanted to help but it is 70 miles from me and with LA traffic it would easily be 2.5 hours each way since I had to work first. I reached out to Alex (check out the cute sleepover pics) since I have yet to get a CA ID and said "are you up for a road trip to save this pup?" and of course she was ready to help. We were all set to go when we got a last minute email stating that someone closer to him would be picking him up. A small part of me was happy to not have to make the long drive but a big part of me was sad that I wouldn't be the person who got to pull him but in the end I knew he would be going to a loving home. To say the day was an emotional roller coaster is an understatement! Its reasons like this that I am not a foster parent because I was already attached to this pup I had never seen!
I am hoping all works out well as there were some last minute changes with the pup. Now I am off to hem and haw about how to break the big news....
