My dog, in jail

    How humiliating. My dog has her mug shot posted on the internet.

    14 1/2 years old, fat, half blind in one eye, has a hard time walking (thanks to age and obesity), and she sheds her collar and takes off for a wild time on the town - only to wind up in the local dog jail.

    Aaaagh! I can't believe my dog's mug shot is on the internet! :surprised

    Were drugs or alcohol involved?

    She's doing it to get your attention!

    She's got a few good months left.

    Have a heart!

    At least she's spayed. :biggrin: That's actually a pretty nifty idea, to put the mugshots on the internet, so you can save time looking for a lost pet by searching online rather than having to go from shelter to shelter in person.

    I'd do anything for a red paper clip! :tongue2:

    I have three cats. With one of those clear, plastic exercise balls that allow the mouse to at least somewhat explore the house, the cats will have great entertainment and the mouse will have an incredibly good aerobic training program.

    I didn't make it to the pound before they closed yesterday, so I had to bail the dog out this morning. But, of course I had to get her out.

    She's so entertaining. Once, while riding in the back of my Dodge Dynasty, she stuck her head out the window, then rolled the window up on her head and got very distressed about it.

    That took some quick thinking since I was driving in heavy traffic. She'd stepped on the power window switch, so I had to disable the window switches, then roll down the window using my switch. Then I had to try and control the car in heavy traffic while laughing uncontrollably.

    Just to follow up, my dog, Betty, passed away yesterday morning.

    She wouldn't come to the back door, even when I called her, so I had to look for her. She was back behind the bush where she likes to bury her bones and other treasure and was still alive, but she was obviously dying. I thought about taking her to the vet, but I was pretty sure their only solution would be to go ahead and put her to sleep. She only lived for about a half hour after I found her, so I wound up just petting her and talking to her.

    It wasn't a total shock, since she was getting to the point where I knew we were going to have some problems to face - getting up the stairs to the deck was an arduous ordeal for her anymore and it was getting to the point where I was scared to watch her go down the stairs. She also spent most of her time lying in the living room or on the deck. Still, the fact that she still would feel pretty active once in a while and that she could still make it up those stairs made me think we still had a little more time.

    I was glad I found her while she was still alive, though.
