... (fingers tapping, fingers tapping) ... I want to meet a dog, Austin (some of you may have heard me mention his name, once or twice, or two thousand times). He is with a Rescue, living with a family. I've been in touch with the woman he's living with. I've been in touch with the woman who runs the rescue. We are at the point where we are ready to meet him and move forward, and then ... nothing. I haven't heard from anyone since Friday.
Now we did have a whole mess of a lot of rain on Saturday so at this point I am just assuming that they are all flooded out, their houses are floating, and they and the dogs are hanging on for dear life. I wish I could help them, but no one will contact me. I will take one of the dogs off of their hands (if he gets along with Daisy, loves my children, and doesn't mess in the house, eat my cats, or bark too much - simple things I look for in a dog) to lighten the load (I know, generous), but no one will contact me.
So, I wait (fingers still tapping) ... and wait (still tapping) ... and hopefully I will know something soon ...
UPDATE: I heard from the woman in charge of the Rescue today. She obviously hadn't received my other e-mail so now I should be meeting Austin on Sunday at a meet and greet they are doing for their animals up for adoption :oD
