I went to a local adopt-a-pet event hoping to adopt the lab puppy (the only puppy they had at the time) that they'd mentioned in their announcement. I got to the event saw the puppy and was ready to take her home. I noticed this Beagle-Basset-mix lying in his cage looking as if he'd pretty much given up on life. All of the other animals were excitable each time someone stopped next to their cage almost as if to say 'pick me, pick me', but not Putz. In speaking with the woman that ran the shelter, it turns out that Putz had been adopted out twice and returned to the shelter each time. He was two years old by the time that I saw him. As much as I wanted the puppy in hand, something made me keep returning to Putz's cage. I heard a little girl crying saying 'but mommy, I wanted the puppy'. I went over to the little girl, handed her the puppy and took Putz home with me instead. He's been with me for 10 years now and although at times I wonder what happened to the puppy, I'm pretty sure I was meant to go and find Putz instead!!!
