puppies.

So this weekend I went with some friends down to Corpus Christi. Yeah, of course we went to the beach. It's kinda a must if you drive 5 hours to the coast. But more importantly, we were saving puppies.

I really don't have words to describe how adorable these puppies are. They're 6 week old schnauzers. Now there are just two of them, but we started with 3.  My big sister from Tau Beta Sigma has a little sister in TBS who's from Corpus and has a boy friend who still lives there. His family is awful. They are horrible people and I hate them from the deepest part of my heart. They had two full bred schnauzers, and these little guys came from them. After mom and dad doggie shot out dogs, they kicked them out of the house. The guy dog is almost for sure dead, and Silver, the mom, is in really bad shape. She still hangs out around the house, but they don't feed her or anything. She has awful bunches in her fur and has this awful skin disease and sores and we're pretty sure she has heart worms... she'll be dead soon if they don't do anything, and I doubt they will. So these puppies have been living outside since birth, we have no idea what the hell they've been feeding them, if anything at all, and they offed dad and won't let them near their mom. It's horrible. So we saved them. They wanted 50 bucks a piece for these flee-infested, sick puppies with sores and scabs all over their bodies. We decided it was worth the money to save them. We found a home for one of them in Corpus, and my big sister's mom is taking another.

The third one had no home, until I came along. It took a lot of convincing, and some compromising, but I'm not done yet. I wanted that puppy. Because it's the cutest thing I think I've ever seen. My dad did NOT want that puppy. So I didn't talk to him. I talked to mom. I sent her pictures and told her the sob story written above. I got it to the point where they puppy is coming home with me, and then, as far as mom thinks right now, we're finding a home for it in Coppell. Now, if all goes according to my plan, this puppy's cuteness factor with overpower my mother and she won't be able to let go of it. As soon as dad sees it, maybe it'll change his mind too; he's a softy for animals, whether he wants to admit it or not. (In the spirit of optimism, I need puppy name suggestions! Comment, go!)

So I'll keep you updated on how the challenge to gain puppy ownership status goes. If it works, the puppy will be staying at my house for the rest of the school year and summer, then coming with me to my apartment, in a perfect world. My mom may not be okay with that last part, either because she'll be too attached to it or because it's 'too much of a distraction' or something. We'll see. Worst case scenario, we find it an awesome home in Coppell.

Puppy saving, check.
