Blackie

This regards Blackie, the elderly dog who belongs to a homeless deaf woman, I have been helping, and who's cat I have been fostering, for the past 7 months.

On Oct. 25th, Blackie left the kennel where he has been for three months, and is now in foster care at a rescue facility. 

Here is what happened last Friday...

A woman volunteered her pet taxi service to go an hour out of Manhattan and back, to get 9 yr old Blackie, and even gave him a beautiful new collar and leash, as his old collar was way too big for him (he lost a lot of weight in the kennel).

We took Blackie to my office, where I brushed and fed him, and let him relax.  He was then driven to the rescue facility, where they volunteered to care for Blackie for however long it takes the homeless woman to get an apartment.  Blackie will have his own room, his own television, and will be treated as part of the family.  When it's warm enough, he will spend time in one of the spacious individual dog playpens outside.  He will be taken for walks on beautiful sweeping lawns.
