Friday's Child Is Loving And Giving To You Like Loving And Giving Is Supposed To Be


Social Tees called her JoJo.  She was thin and tiny and tired and did a lot of sleeping in their window.  She was under a year, had been thrown out into the backyard of a building on 4th Street and when Animal Control picked her up, they wrote on her paperwork 'very friendly'.  

We renamed her Goldie.  

Her first month with us was bumpy, what with her so sick from shots.  We had to bring her to the food and the litter box. Still, she had the sassiest walk as she learned the lay of the land. But, even as she got better and would rush to greet us, any sudden move would send her cringing into safety.  

It's been a year filled with many cans of food and fierce brushings and lots of yarn throwing.  Goldie now runs to the window when she hears the neighborhood bluejay squawk in the morning, or the sirens at night.   She has her little corners to take her naps, snug and safe and sound.  

And just this morning, we woke up to find her curled up into safety between our feet.

Thank you, Social Tees.  Our hearts are bigger, our souls kinder and our home filled with love. 

You Too Can Live in the Land of Love

Fido's foster mom had to go out of town and Social Tees do not want to put this boy in a cage. 

He is about 8 years old and around 60 lbs. He's s very playful and spunky for a mature dog and makes an awesome jogging companion (he helped his former foster mom go from a 10 minute mile to a 7 minute mile!). 

But he is also super chill indoors and just wants to lie around and sleep and cuddle with you. He could use a little leash work because he pulls a bit, and he needs a little help learning how to properly socialize with other pups he meets on the street, but he's a fast learner and will be a wonderful, loyal companion to a big dog lover who can give him the attention he deserves. 

Please, please help this boy!!!  Fostering lasts 2 to 4 weeks.  Or even for the rest of your life!


Why, you might ask, does a blog that explores New York's disappearing landscape, family and home, write about cats and dogs up for adoption?

Why indeed.
