Not this time, dammit (212.2)
After Will pointed out this Facebook post from the Tompkins County SPCA yesterday, making me wonder if they were announcing I'd adopted him before he'd actually come home with me, or they'd given him to someone else, I got an apologetic e-mail from them this morning to tell me that thanks to a glitch with the e-mail at the front desk, and some mis-communication, they had in fact let someone else take Icarus home.

Now that I've got a crate, a leash, food and water bowls, and so on, I might as well go see who else is on hand who might be a good match for me, right? My reaction has done more than anything else to convince me I was, in fact, ready to adopt a dog.

But, since I'm dog-sitting again next weekend (at the dog's house, not mine), I should probably wait until after that.

Geez Louise! I hope Icarus enjoys his new home and that you find another pup that's just right for you!

I know you dogsit next weekend, but take a look at Dottie on their website and tell me that's not the happiest dog face ever.

DottieDottie's one of the dogs I met back in February. She's a sweetheart, but she's also very needy. It's much less surprising that she's still there than that Icarus was.

It was less a suggestion and more a "holy crap that's a happy looking dog."

Aw that sucks :( I mean at least he has a home but WTF I can't believe they let him go to someone else like that.

I'm sorry that they gave Icarus to someone else.
