Dogs Good, People Meh.

Wife and I went and worked an adoption event for the no-kill shelter we volunteer at today at a local children’s museum (awesome place BTW, and I had no idea it was even there). Spent 4-5 hours hanging out and playing with dogs – 2 puppies, one younger male and 2 chihuahua mixes.

All of them were quite well behaved, well, except for one pup who insisted that rambunctious and obnoxious=good! But she tuckered out eventually. Plus 2 kittens, both of whom got taken home by the same person which was nice.

All in all not a bad way to spend a Saturday. Except for all the talking to people. Way too much talking to people. It’s part of the job and I do it because it’s for the dogs, but by the time I get home I’m more way done with people than usual. It’s fun watching the kids with the dogs though.

    I’ve never read the phrases “well behaved” and “chihuahua mixes” in the same post before. I assume they were drugged or something? My chihuahua mix is the tyrant of the house, constantly harassing our other dogs (who outweigh him 5-6x).

      Nope, perfectly well-behaved. It was interesting, shelter dogs often don’t have good manners but all of these ones with the exception of a 2 /12 month old puppy were very good.
