Foster Pup Saga Continues

Beagle Debris
Cute or What?
I never said I didn't love him!

The skies are gray, the leaves are falling, and I'm feeling the hot breath of dog down my neck. Bailey's been with me now since, I don't know, sometime in September, and it's time to get serious about finding him a permanent home. Yes, yes, it's perfectly obvious that I am crazy about this dog. Particularly when we're cozied up in the house. But Bailey's idea of bliss is to be running around like a wound-up bunny chasing like-minded friends, who -- if they're really special -- will chase him back.

Della and Bailey doing their stuffed dog imitation. We should all sleep so well.
So take a good look at Della (above), consider the size of my garden, and ask not how I can give up Bailey. Better, ask yourself whether you know anyone in Portland who might offer him a more perfect home!
