If there’s one thing that life has taught me, it is that when things are meant to be, they will happen.
If there’s one thing that animal rescue has taught me, it is to remember the above.
If there’s one thing that the blogging world has taught me, it is that people like being scared witless by creepy creatures?!? Thanks for all the “Likes” on my previous creepy blog but maybe we need to look at a “What the Hell?” button.
My previous Chocy update had a number of Chaos scenarios. This update has but one. This statement was, of course, true when I wrote it on Friday. The additions to the chaos will explain why it was never posted.
Friday’s post would have read:
Shelter Owner Arrives – nothing news worthy there.
Chaos 1 – Shelter Owner immediately notices the gate between the back garden and driveway is open. The decision is set in stone. Chocy will not be homed here.
My poor, dear Chocy. She was not yet there, so there had been no need to close the gate. The Jack Russell has been well trained and never attempts to run out. The Shelter owner, however, saw this as a red-flag.
I understand that the Shelter owner takes every animal in her care extremely personally and treats them as one of her own. I also understand why she is reluctant to let Chocy go. I take my hat off to her for the bond she has with her animals. However, I also feel the son’s deep disappointment. He failed his Interrogation Test! But fear not, son, for we shall find you your perfect dog, who awaits your perfect home.
The post was about to go out when……………………………………:
Shelter Owner contacts Son again. She has changed her mind. Son may collect Chocy on Saturday. Brilliant!!
Saturday comes and goes. No sign of Son. Shelter Owner panics, phones son (no answer).
Sunday: Son phones Shelter Owner. He had a party to attend to so couldn’t collect dog and left phone at home. Can he collect dog on Monday? Shelter Owner has a frothy.(well, no, not really but it reads better that way).
Monday: Shelter Owner phones me. Mind changed back – no adoption for Chocy.
Final Statement: Back to original Friday post. A different dog awaits this home and a different home awaits Chocy.
Note to anyone thinking animal adoption is easy – refer to above!
