Purrs to the big baby
Angela and Gizmo
"Brenda" (Email Removed) had some very interesting things to say about Re: A Few Quiet positive thoughts.:
special d*ggie purrs enroute. My sister once rescued a big gentle d*g who was wandering the streets and ended up ... got on so well that after the d*g crossed the bridge, my sister and her family actually adopted another one.

Felix actually likes d*gs better than he likes other cats. :-)

Make sure the pound is a no-kill shelter. Someone probably lost the
bumbling beast due to carelessness. I mean, how on earth do you lose a St. Bernard?! Jill

I wish all shelters were no-kill.
I believe she's lost simply because you don't see that many St. Bernards running around to begin with, and as so many people think they're beautiful, he wouldn't be that hard to home.

The good news is that particular breeds are rare in shelters and chances are Charlie will be snapped up fast no matter where he went.

Purrs from Blossom and bowwows from Mutt that he finds his forever home very fast.

We temporarily adopted one onece. She had been abandoned during a storm. We already had a male one and it caused problems so we found another home for her. Its amazing that someone would abandon one they're expensive dogs. Suz

After she broke down the fence, and after spending some time with her, she was the sweetest thing you can imagine, but I cannot imagine living with her 24/7. She is huge and didn't appear to be trained at all. Didn't act like she had ever heard down, or sit or stay. Plus this is far to hot a climate for such a dog. It will be over 100 again today with wind. So it is possible that her owners are breathing a sigh of relief, but I doubt it. Even it they don't reclaim her, someone will. There is a sucker born every minute, and maybe this time she will find one that can handle her.

As I said, I've only seen a couple, total, in my life, even in Ca Bay area..the one that used to come here every winter belonged to a "snowbird" (as we natives call them) who spent the hot months up north and the cold ones down here, like most tourists do..he once told me what his S.B. ate every day (he fed it hamburger) and even though I can't remember how much, I *do* remember thinking it would keep our family of hoomins fed for a week in hamburger main courses! His S.B. was spotless and well-groomed..very much like a clean, good-natured bear, but cuter.

I just remembered that a classmate of mine used to have a St Bernhard. They also had a cat, who used to sleep between the paws of the St B. As I remember it, she (the cat) kept him (the d*g) pretty well in check. ;o)
