I think everyone knows I have a soft spot for long eared dogs or else I wouldn't have a coon hound in my life so of course I was completely delighted to see Ed in all his long eared glory today! However, my delight turned to shock and horror as I walked towards him because
he was all skin and bones
and his toenails were dirty and overgrown
and his glorious ears weren't so glorious looking
and to make matters worse, Ed's yard was covered in feces and
his living arrangements did not include a bowl of food or water and he certainly did not have a secure tie-out or collar so
I gave Ed a big hug and promised to get him the help he deserved.
As soon as Officer Johanson saw Ed's emaciated body
she took him for the best ride of his life! A check up at the veterinarian's office and a chance to live with a caring owner (hopefully with me) was just what he deserved!
