Last Friday we handed Annie the Gremlin Dog back to the rescue organization so that she could participate in a big adoption event. (It was an afternoon event and I was working, or I'd have offered to go along and help.) Afterward, Gremlin was supposed to go out to New Jersey to run around in the cool green grass with some other rescued mutts.
Alas, Lady Luck is no friend to gremlins. Not only did Gremlin fail to land a home over the weekend, but she managed to catch a doggy cold while on vacation and had to take a quick trip to the vet. Nothing serious, happily, but it kept her out of commission for a couple of days.
She'll be coming back to us tomorrow. Here's hoping she catches someone's eye (and heart) soon.
