Amy Poskey, our tipster for animal needs at the Denton McNatt Animal Shelter, reports that there are seven dogs she’s desperate to save. “I’m not giving up on these babies and I hope you won’t, either. If seven rescues would be willing to save just one pooch each then we could save them all! ... All of these angels are fully vetted and ready for their miracle of finding love! “If anyone can save any of these love sponges, please contact me (Amy at @) , Gayla Nelsen (kennel supervisor) at @ and/or Paul O’Neill (shelter manager) at ’neill@.
These dogs are (top row) Mrs. Doubtfire (59872), Romeo (72639) and Chase (71599). Bottom row dogs are Rhett (71598), Meadow (72010) and Cactus Jack (72171). The dog on the left is the fascinating Romulus (72125). They’re all adoptable, not just taggable by rescue. Fees are $30 -- a bargain at twice the price. [ LARRY ASIDE: And, again, we ask the questions: WHY ARE SO DARNED MANY GREAT DOGS ON DEATH ROW IN A CITY SHELTER? WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?]
CONTEMPLATIONS: Sorry about that photo line-up -- I'm a failed graphic artist, but it is an appropriately scary layout for the day, right? Halloween is the anniversary of the year in the 1950s in the basement of Texarkana's Highland Park Elementary School that I took on the greatest role of my acting career -- I portrayed The Wild Man of Borneo, my vivid presentation terrifying kids in the first, second and third grades. I don’t think 4th graders and above fell for it... Did you see the story about price-gouging at gasoline stations in Texas in the aftermath of Harvey’s landfall? Well, I swan, I cannot believe that there would be dastardly people preying on those who are suffering. So, what can a person do to teach those retailers a lesson? We’ve got to depend on the AG to do the public spanking. Names will make news, don’t you think? ... I’m going to repeat a paragraph from an earlier story in today’s edition because, in discussing the momma dog and her dumped puppies, I think Muriel Parker hit the ol’ nail on the head: “Whoever dumped them deserves that special place in hell for animal abusers. Sadly, it seems like it’s gonna be crowded down there.” Can we get an “Amen!”? And, of course, some prayers for changes in the hearts of people who dump animals and hurt kids, teens and adults. Geez, what is the matter with those people?
