It’s holiday time. When thoughts turn to Christmas balls, rum balls, and puppy balls.
Or at least my thoughts do.
Scooter gets a neuter.
For nearly two weeks, I’ve been keeping a foster puppy from the Tompkins County SPCA. Our days have been exhausting, frustrating, and very, very fun.
But tomorrow it comes to an end.
At 8:00 a.m. I take Scooter back to the SPCA to be neutered before he’s eligible for adoption by his forever-home.
Many readers and Facebook friends have suggested we adopt Scooter ourselves. I was never once tempted.
Why not? He’s cute. He likes cuddling, He’s a wonderful puppy.
And that’s why.
Scooter will be an easy puppy for a new family.
The Tompkins County SPCA is the first no-kill shelter in the country. They can remain an open-admission, no-kill shelter as long as they can find adoptive homes for all the animals in their care.
I think Scooter will be a wonderful representative of all the great animals there looking for homes. His powers of cuteness will prevail.
Scooter with a little less to love
Minus his little jingle bells, Scooter will be a perfect family friend.
That’s why I’ve gotten on board with the Holiday Blogging Event for Pets in Need organized and sponsored by Two Little Cavaliers.
Check out all the other bloggers. The winning blogger will get a cash prize to be donated to their favorite animal charity.
Conveniently, the amount of the expected prize is about the cost of neutering Scooter.
Use the Rafflecopter to join in the fun. I guarantee you’ll have a better time than Scooter.
