What a weekend... Filled with ups and downs, happy and sad moments, and lots of crying.
First the sad news. My smallest girl, Little Big Head, passed away on Sunday. After a year of going down hill she finally succumbed to old age and multiple ailments. LBH was a great dog who started out as one of my fosters several years ago. She was a funny little dog, very quiet, but fiesty. She was also a reformed fear biter. Initially, she was biting people and chasing the cat, but once she settled in she was golden. Her favorite pastime was licking Sammy, my Italian Greyhound; and after he left this world she just licked anyone available. She was also deaf, ate cat poop and had very bad teeth, but darn her if she wasn't the cutest kid.
As for her origins, she was saved by the group Pugs & Pals from one of the shelters because she was about to be euthanized due to illness and biting. She was nursed back to health by the rescue folks and then put up for adoption. I fostered her for P&P but pretty quickly realized that she was going to be my dog. The rest is history... we had 7 wonderful years together. I just want to say that LBH will be sorely missed by everyone who knew her.
The good news this weekend was that the Big Lick shelter event kicked butt with at total of 49 adoptions including dogs, cats and bunnies! We had 24 dog adoptions which was amazing! In fact, during this week since the event we've had some of our long termers adopted as well! So, there is a lot to be happy about... and a lot of happy memories of my Little Big Head girl.
