Not one to give up too easily I continued to correspond with the rescue group. I offered to adopt the mother - Jupiter, but she was already adopted too! Her story sounds like a sad one - she spent most of her life chained to a porch. Then she had this litter of puppies and the owner decided to give up the mother and the puppies. Only, she didn't turn over all the puppies - she kept three now known as Pepper, Coriander and Wolfsbane.
To me, he is just the cutest. Oddly, I wanted a female puppy but after hosting Pete this last week, I was really feeling like a little boy puppy would be okay. I know, there are puppies everywhere! And believe me I've been looking diligently with the help from a few of my friends (Pam Fore, Lisa Dietrich, Kathleen Flammia, Gayle King and a few more). But, I really felt like I had a weird connection to this litter and now it is actually going to happen.
So here's the plan - I fly to Baltimore, MD on Friday (next), pick up the puppy on Saturday morning and fly home on Sunday! Guess who will be coming to work with me on Monday???
