Tex is very happy as I take him out of the kennel and he grabs a toy, a pink kong, but then he sees another toy, a yellow plushy, and decides he wants to bring that one as well so he tries to shove both things into his mouth but as soon as he gets the plushy in his mouth, the kong falls out and he tries to get the kong in his mouth and the plushy falls out. Chanel watches him from her kennel, fascinated with his efforts and general klutziness. It takes him about a minute but Tex finally figures out a way to get both toys into his mouth and now he's ready to go for a walk.
Outside, as we pass the first scent, Tex drops both toys and forgets about them and starts to sniff. Of course. So, now I have to carry these gloopy discards around for him. They train us well.
The best way to check on the adoption status of this dog (and other dogs and cats and other small domestic animals) is to visit Toronto Animal Services adoption website or call 416 338 6668 for the Toronto Animal Services South shelter. If the dog is no longer on the TAS adoption website, it's probably because it's been adopted already.
