Regarding Fred the Cat’s Secret he wrote about last Friday

It was supposed to be a puppy but it won’t be this time.

Last week, via email from a friend, we were told about a special little puppy at a humane society in another Florida county. He sounded like he needed Mr. Pop and I, and we felt we needed him.

We filled out the application with all the necessary information. We submitted it last Thursday knowing the decision would be made sometime Friday. We waited and waited but no word came. We went from excited to kind of blue. From the beginning we said if it was meant to be, it would. I guess it wasn’t.

We aren’t in the puppy hunting mode right now but this little guy stole our hearts away. I think one thing that was against us was that we were so far away and perhaps the humane society there felt they couldn’t easily check up on their little adoptee once he went to his new home.

So we glue our hearts back together and wait for the next opportunity to have a special little dog bump into our lives or we bump into his.

Do't be blue- your day will come! In NJ you have to get a pup from the county in which you live. Maybe this is the case in FLA too. Seems a stupid rule to me! If you ahve the credentials what should a county make! Rules will be rules!

Sorry about that.

It is nice though how careful the Humane Society is with placements.

It'll happen when it's meant to, as you and Fred know. That's how we've gotten our babies--pure chance.

Sometimes things like this are to get you all ready for the puppy you WILL get. At least that's the way I like to look at it.

You made me mist up. Don't ever do that again. I mean it. I refuse to turn into an old softie.

Oh, well. (Cake and ice cream would still be appropriate, if you ask me.)
