About a month ago, this little fellow showed up on our front porch. He had big sad eyes, a wagging tail, a great personality; alas, he did not have a tag or a microchip. We fostered him while searching for his people, but weren't able to find the owners. I would have loved to keep him, but we already have a huge dog, two cats, as well as the two cats belonging to my partner's twin who just moved in with us for a while--in other words, a whole lot of mammal for a 1600 sq. foot house. But luck was with us all, and we've found him a good home. And even better, it's right in our own block. While walking him, I ran into one of our neighbors, who has a young daughter. She was looking for a dog for the family and fell in love with Little Man on the spot. A day later, he was at her vet, being fitted for a snazzy new red collar, and being trained as her shop dog. We'll miss having him around, but I'm glad the story has a happy ending.l
I'd especially like to thank Valerie at Visual Vamp and Nathan at Laurel Street for their help, along with all of the help from readers. Thank you.
