EDITION OF TUESDAY, APRIL 18, 2017 (PetPowellPress) -- Some rain Monday, huh. On the way into Oak Cliff from downtown during rush hour, I heard some sirens and immediately thought, “Dallas drivers -- can’t drive in the rain.” So, I’d like to apologize to my fellow Dallas drivers. A split-second after I thought that I remembered the weekend traffic and it occurs to me that they can’t drive when it’s dry, either. All that aside, let’s talk dogs and cats and things. Noses, for example. Look at those noses above! Available. All of ‘em.
WHAT STARTED THIS NOSE DISPLAY....
Monday afternoon we got a note from Dinesha Schmidt of A Different Breed Rescue with the subject line “WEIMAREINER IN GREENVILLE SHELTER! SHELTER IS FULL!!!”
So we clicked on the Petfinder link to the Greenville, Texas, shelter -- just about an hour and a dime northeast of Dallas on I-30 -- and found a whole lot of animals in need of homes. We’re just posting a few of ‘em here because whoever takes the pictures at Greenville does a great job of capturing eyes, noses and adopt me looks.
Click HERE to check out the adoptables -- including that cat with the airplane ears, yes, an Earhoundus Felis Catus. But you already knew that.
You see that Weim youngster in the cage, of course.
Our reliable Denton shelter tipster, the volunteer Amy Poskey, reports, “First the good news: JAXON and MAX have been adopted! YAY!!!” (We mentioned them before.) And Amy continues, “Now the not-so-good news… SCARLETT, WINNY, CHOCOLATE CHIP AND CANDICE ARE STILL WAITING FOR LOVE. All four of these angels are FULLY VETTED and ready for their happily-ever-after, but please note that our SWEET CANDiCE has been moved to isolation with kennel cough. Poor baby has struggled most or all her life and now she’s sick in the shelter.”
The story on Candice is she’s 7 and “may or may not be pregnant. She is so thin the vet staff could not be sure. All her ribs are showing, she’s HW positive and she needs a dental. Bless her heart, she needs to know there is love in this world.”
Amy suggests that people who want to help these animals beat the odds, they should get in touch with her at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Shelter Manager Paul O’Neill at 940-349-7594.
BAILEY STILL NEEDS A HOME
Deborah Verner has been trying to find a home for Bailey since 2010 when she rescued him from “a desolate back road outside Seagoville, at what’s called the Tree Farm. She was approximately six months old at the time of rescue. She was dumped with her pregnant Mom, Sadie, out in the middle of nowhere with no food, water, or shelter of any kind. Her Mom, Sadie, went into foster care to have her nine pups -- she found her forever home.”
Bailey is a high energy dog, but sweet and gives high fives. She can climb, so whoever gets her needs a high fence -- at least six feet, says Deborah.
Bailey is in great health, up to date on shots, etc. She’s intimidated by big dogs. Get in touch with Deborah through Facebook HERE.

... Dallas, now and then, does look pretty in a spring rain. Not as pretty as at night at Christmas, but it’s OK if you look through a windshield. You know, like in MacArthur Park. Someone left the cake out in the rain? ... Favorite movie about rain? Hmmm. That’s a toughy. Favorite song about rain? Try this ONE.
