I got a call today from a friend of Binks that is helping her place her beloved dog Dozer with a new family. I can't imagine her giving up that dog, but this is what her friend tells me. She can't have the dog in the place where she will be staying. The friend is a rescue person, who places animals out of the kindness of her heart. She (the friend) called me today during a New Year's brunch that my other two girls and I fixed. Of course, that upset my applecart! She wanted to see if I knew of anyone who could keep the dog until Friday. She can't take the dog to his new home until then. I told her I knew of no one. Since I really think she wanted me to say that I would take him, I told her that under the circumstances, I would not be getting in the middle of anything that she was doing for Binks, since Binks did not seem to like me much right now. She thanked me anyway and that was the end of the conversation.
It welled up feelings in me. One was relief, that Binks won't be sleeping in her truck on the streets anymore and another was anger that she once again is giving up something she dearly loves because she is so flippin' stubborn. Well, it's another shovel full towards digging that hole she is going to find herself at the bottom of.
