Whatever you do, I hope it all works out.

Getting back to the original subject of this thread, I just got a Winter Storm Advisory on my phone for us on Thursday. It says we might get up to 7" of snow. You predicted to get anything?

 Are you sure it is not an advance april's fool joke ?

We officially started work last week.  Of course so ended up missing the first day with a funeral but I feel like it all worked out in the end as far as this little story Iím about to tell.  Our first job was in Baltimore Maryland.  I missed the first day which set us back but also is the reason I was at a particular section of the job on my first day.  Halfway through the day I hear a truck hit the brakes and honk his horn.  I look up to see him almost hit a dog.  This dog is a splitting image of my Opie.  I watch the dog for a minute.  No color or leash and no one around walking her.  He almost gets hit again so I call her over and she reluctantly came crossed over to me.  I coaxed her in to my work truck and called animal control.  They said they can put me on a waiting list to be picked up.  So that convo went like this.

AC - we can put you on the waiting list for pick up.

Me - well how long will that be?

AC - maybe between 3 and 4 or possibly later in the afternoon

Me - Iím doing contruction and she is in my truck right now.  What do I do if I have to leave and you havenít come yet?

AC - if you have to go, you can just let her back out and leave.

Me - after a long silence I repeated what they said in the form of a question

AC - yeah just let her back out in the street.  Thatís the best thing to do.

I was dumb founded.  Said put me on the waiting list.  I hung up and told my coworker, I said hereís the deal, if they donít get here. Wrote we leave, sheís going with us and I will bring her back tomorrow or we are delivering her to the shelter ourselves.  She was well cared for.  Very recent nail clipping and plenty fed.  One of the sweetest dogs Iíve ever met. 

Needless to say they got there pretty quick.  No chip.  No way to tell who she belonged to.  They took my info and took her away.  After three days she wasnít claimed by anyone who might be missing her so the shelter took ownership.  She is available for adoption as soon as she is fixed.  Her surgery was this morning.  I talked my parents in to taking her and my sister is going to pick her up tomorrow when they open.  Unfortunately my work in Baltimore is over and Iím switching to very long nights and wonít have time to make the 5 hour round trip to get her.  And so canít take her because of having two males.   It my parents just had a 15 year old dog put down and they now have a lonely pup who needs a friend. 

Here are a few pics.  In my effort to guilt trip everyone in my family I made a little collage of her and my Opie to hit them right in the feels!  It worked.

So I did manage to talk my parents in to taking her in.  They had two elderly dogs that had to be put down months apart, leaving the youngest one without his best buddy.  I wasnít able to go get her because of working nights they would only hold her for one extra day after she was officially available for adoption, which they wouldnít do until she was fixed first.  My sister volunteered to make the 6 hour round trip to get her, being the first in line on her first day of availability.  She was able to successfully adopt her and she now lives with my parents and Her new brother Colby.  She is a HANDFUL!  Sweetest dog but just a ball of energy like Iíve never seen.  I think I dodged a bullet here!  Haha.  Itís their problem now.  She walks off with everything you set down if youíre not paying attention.  She took my dads drill while he was working on something.  Very cool dog though.  My mom named her Sasha for what itís worth.
