It was hard to tell who was happier, the dog, Bambi, or the grandson

(Wednesday, December 12, 2012) - I received a phone call today from a woman looking to adopt a dog. She said her grandson told her he wanted a dog. She told him he already has a cat but he told her, "Boys are supposed to have a dog."
She wanted to know if I had any dogs suitable for a 7 year old and I told her about a Lab/Beagle mix named "Champ" that would be the perfect match. She asked what our adoption fee is and I explained that we don't have a set fee but just ask for a donation. She asked for directions and said she would be coming out soon.
She parked outside the fence and as I was getting Champ for them to meet one of our other dogs, Bambi, spotted them. Bambi saw the little boy and she climbed over the fence, licked his face and then pushed at his hand with her nose so he'd pet her. In the meantime she sat on the grandmother's feet. I brought Champ out to meet them but it was quite obvious the decision had already been made. Bambi had picked out her new family.
We completed the paperwork and she gave me a cash donation, part of it was 10 gold $1 coins her grandson had saved to adopt a dog. This is what it's all about. He saved his money to adopt a dog and to me those ten coins were as good as a million.
Bambi jumped in the back seat with him. The dogs know when they're going to a new home. I don't know who was happier Drake (the grandson) or Bambi. - Peg
