Tinker Bell

I wrote a few days ago about my niece Samantha losing her dog Chico. Her brother James works for a local newspaper and he was on the lookout for a new pup for Sam. He told the story about Chico getting killed to one of his co-workers at the paper. On Friday, the co-worker was covering a story about a fundraising drive at the Walker County Humane Society and she called James excitedly. "Tell your sister to get over here quick!!!" she exclaimed. "There is a dog here that would be perfect for her."
James called his mom and they hustled over to Jasper to have a look. What they found was a tiny dog, I'm not sure of the breed, but she fell in love at first sight. It's a fuzzy black and white dog and more laid back than a stoned fan at a Grateful Dead concert.

It seems the previous owners bought the dog for a small child and they didn't get along. I'm guessing the kid tormented the little critter until it had enough.

Anyhow, I'm so glad it worked out the way it did. My niece is happy and the little dog is in heaven. She brought him over on Friday to show Jilda, but I was out of town so she brought "Tinker Bell" over to show her to me this morning. I shot the accompanying photo.

Welcome to our family Tinker Bell.

    That face looks just like our precious "Crissy" we had for eighteen years, she was a peek-a-poo. Which I assumed was a mixture of pekingese and poodle.
    I hope your niece receives as much joy from tinker bell as crissy gave us!
