    We have a temporary house guest!

    We had a severe storm come thru our own and neighboring towns yesterday afternoon. Winds up to 90 MPH and a little bit of rain. In our city, we still have 80,000 people without electricity. There are so many trees down that the City workers worked all day today trying to remove them but there are still alot blocked roads. My other half volunteers at the local animal shelter every week, walking and bathing dogs. We got a call today telling us that the shelter doesn't have any power and hasn't had any since last evening. The city told them the power would be back on by Wednesday! They were asking for temporary foster homes for all the dogs up for adoption. We of course said yes and we brought Zurdo, a 1 1/2yo Pomeranian home with us today! Temporarily though because we already have 3 dogs (Shepherd/Akita mix, German Shepherd and a Pomeranian) and 4 cats. Zurdo is pretty well behaved though he does like to chase the cats! Housebroken too, which is a plus! So far, everyone is co-habitating without any major issues!

    What a good soul to allow a little excitement into the mix! I'll bet your cats will be looking for him for days after he is gone.

    He is a doll, no way could I give him back. I for sure would change his name, don't know how that one came about.

    I looked up Zurdo thru Mr. Google and it means "Left Handed" and is also a Mexican Fantasy Adventure movie.

    The law says we can only have 7 pets (live within the city limits) But we can foster as many as we want. Figure that one out!

    If I lived closer, he would have a wonderful (although extremely hot) home here in GA.

    I had to look! English Translation of ZURDO

    : left-handed

    I guess in this case, left pawed.

    He's so cute, will be hard to give him back. On the other hand, thanks for fostering him, someone is going to get a sweet dog!

    Can't imagine he will be in "care" for long....a very adoptable little guy. I'd have him in a heartbeat....but it's an awfully long journey...not to mention quarantine!
