  6. glad he found home, was about to offer him one :)

    • :D

      • :) am really bad when it comes to animals needing homes, at one time i had 11 dogs lol

      • I have a maxim .. until i settle down i won’t get any pets .. not fair to move them around .. but i am going to Greece shortly ..and was wondering if he might need a good home ..with lots of attention .. some people have pets but don’t do anything with them just food water and walks ? not such a great lifestyle …

      • agreed, the reason i had so many was due to economy, people losing jobs, etc … and it was not fair to their pets. i found all a good home except the one i have now. she has major health issues so she stays with me.
