800 cute dogs found in mobile home!!!





"Obviously, 800 dogs in a triple-wide mobile home, they were packed in there. "

"Some dogs were pregnant and giving birth as they were taken to shelters in Tucson"

"welfare officials who removed the dogs also found 82 caged parrots in the home"

...all I can think about is I wish I could adopt even a couple of them!

You should see the local news stories about all the wee dogs getting adopted.

It's sad...big dogs need homes, too!

The owner would have gotten them fixed and given them away, but she was stuck to the toilet for a few years. Oops.

Awwwww... that little red one in the back with its eyes closed is SO CUTE. If I didn't have a dog that would assume it was a toy, I'd adopt one in a heartbeat.

I kinda like the one in the pic at the top, all the way to the left. Besides that one I don't like those types of dog.

I heard a comedian once refer to a chihuaua as akin to a 'rat on acid'. Most appropriate, I think.

But having 800 of anything is screwed up no matter how you look at it.

Although not pictured, the article says there are Pomeranians too, Pcad. Those are very cute dogs - and I say that as someone who has only ever had Golden Retrievers.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

There's always room for Bailey and his Trike; in fact, we will reverse the angle on those pull out side windows so that his cute lil snout will catch the air as we're hurling down the highway at an incredible 55 mph!
