Avid listeners will know that Mike and Dana "Pause for Paws" every Wednesday morning. Where once a week Lonestar Sanctuary for Animals brings in a dog or cat that needs a home. Last Wednesday they brought in Festus, a wired-haired dachshund/several other random things mix. You can see the video on the homepage. But you are out of luck if you were thinking about getting him because this Saturday I went to Lonestar Sanctuary and adopted him myself.
I don’t want to over exaggerate or anything but we are basically best friends forever now.
Right now he is very skittish, understandably since somebody had abandoned him out in an oil field. He doesn’t so much want to play as he does want to curl up next to you and never move. Sometimes he seems like just another 6 month old puppy, and othertimes he seems like the scraggly old character from Gunsmoke he was named after.
Thank you to Beth and Jessie at Lonestar Sanctuary who made the adoption process so easy. And thank you to all the listeners who are Cat People because chances are I will be talking about dogs a whole lot in the near future, sorry.
