I'm Sure You Know This Already

Since Dooce linked this story (I recommend acquiring a tissue before you click) I'm sure that everyone and their dog knows about this but just in case you didn't I have to link to it. I've never purchased a pet. They all sort of...find me. I've adopted 2 cats, in separate instances years apart, who turned out to be pregnant and I ended up with all their kittens (and all their vet bills and fixings and spayings [spay and neuter your pets, spay and neuter your pets, spay and neuter your pets]) as well. So this story feels like a, I don't know, vindication maybe, of my way of pet adoption. If you leave yourself open to it pets will find you. I don't recommend going to war, saving a dog and having to leave it behind so it is forced to follow you hundreds of miles through the desert but if that's how you roll...


  1. I was wailing by the end of the story.
    Thank God for people like him.

  2. Well, I didn't listen and I didn't get my tissues in time.

  3. Yeah, I know. I only skimmed the article myself because I was at work and I knew I'd never recover if I actually read it properly. Poor guy. Poor dog.
