Oh yes we did!
But how could we do this to him? We promised we would never.
His life as he knows it is over. O-v-e-r. Sorry, buddy, we had to.
Because how could we NOT do this for her?
Say hi to Willa Jean. Hi, Willa Jean! (Her name is still up for debate, so feel free to chime in with suggestions.)
Her life as she knows it is also over. But that’s a good thing.
Willa Jean is a black lab, bluetick coonhound and husky mix. A true pound puppy. Or a Labracoonusky, according to our friend Jeff.
We love her to bits already. And so far she’s the most well-behaved puppy I’ve ever met. She hasn’t made a peep at Foster. And she slept through the night in her crate with no accidents.
And… and just look at that tongue!
It’s great for puppy kisses.
Ms. Willa Jean came from the North Country SPCA, the only animal shelter in Essex County. Someone dumped her there when she was 8 weeks old.
I’ve gotten to know the folks over at the North Country SPCA pretty well over the last couple of months. They are a wonderful, kind group of people who care deeply for each and every animal that comes through their door.
If you can spare a moment, a dime, or a spot in your home, please consider volunteering, donating, or adopting an animal from the NCSPCA. Or lend a hand to your local shelter.
There are so many amazing dogs and cats who need homes. We’d adopt them all if we could. But we can’t, so it’s up to all of us to help out.
