... for Kalsang! Senior dog placed with a senior owner. She found us at the Animal House pet expo last weekend and fell in love with Kalsang (Tibetan meaning “good fortune”). She had about given up on ever having a dog again as she wanted an older one. What she’d found so far were either too young (read that “hyper”) or gone before she could get there.
Prior to the home check, she made dog cookies and bought a crate. Said if she didn’t get him, she’d donate the crate to rescue. Sharp lady … 73 and still does her own house/yard work, scoops snow, and plays clarinet in a senior band twice a week. We had an apsolutely delightful visit for the homecheck. House was immaculate (hmmm, wonder if she’d like a part-time job). When I commented on how clean her house was, she replied, “Too damn clean, it’s a dead house … needs a dog to give it some life.”
We discount our adoption fees for the senior dogs … she, however, added $75 to the fee stating “use it for whatever is needed” What a gem!
From a raggedy little dog lost …
