We are back to positive thoughts and considerations.  On Saturday we volunteered at the 2013 Pet Fest in Friendswood, Texas, with our group, Tails in Transition (  Each of us had a job for which we had some talent; I was a dog walker since I had no talent in anything else (LOL) needed that day.  Toward the beginning of the day (from 12 to 5 P.M. inside a huge gymnasium type place called Jones Hangar) I had a few minutes to go across the room and say hello to a friend who runs another rescue non-profit (  After I purchased 2 t-shirts I told her that we were looking for a small, female dog for our neighbor, Buffy’s daddy, that was ready for a new dog in his life.  When I told her all the things we were looking for in a dog for him she pointed across the room and said that they had one like that.  What?  I had to go see!!!!!

Come to find out the little dog was actually a male not a female but he was absolutely perfect, in fact, better than we asked for.  We told the lady what we wanted and she told us more good things about him, and we were hooked.  Long story short, we took him to George yesterday and it was love at first sight.  They are so happy together; it was a perfect match.  I don’t know which of them is the most pleased.  If by Friday they are still happy together we will go ahead with the adoption papers.  According to the new daddy, “as far as I’m concerned there’s no more decision to be made.  I want him!”  The dog’s name was Dawson and he has already been renamed Freckles.

Freckles is about 3 years old and approximate 7-8 pounds.  He’s up to date on shots, HW negative, micro-chipped, happy, well-adjusted and energetic…and he loves to be loved.  He sleeps in his own dog bed, uses the doggie door and loves his new home.  He looks like a Chihuahua mix but has feet and legs like a Dachsund and a tail like a Pomeranian or a Pekinese.  Whatever he is, the combination is cute.  Welcome home, Mr. Freckles!
