On Saturday I stumbled across this cutie at Chicago Animal Care and Control and I can’t stop thinking about him. Or about how much fun it would be for Chick to have a friend. This little guy, Snickers, made it on to the Adoptable floor at CACC, which is good news for him. He was so calm and so sweet when I took him out of his cage. I saw on his card that he was found as a stray near 77th and Ingleside, but he was a little plump, which makes me wonder if he was in a home at some point. I try hard not to make judgements about how an animal makes it into the shelter (sometimes a family really, truly has to choose between a pet and paying rent), but how many others are there because they’re no longer wanted? Snickers was eager for my pieces of cheese, took them so sweetly and was just happy to be held. There is nothing more rewarding than rescuing and adopting a pet.

On Friday we attended the Houndstooth Ball and it was wonderful. Lots of money was raised, Chick made some new friends and nearly inhaled her pupcake. Not to mention the venue, Architectural Artifacts, was lovely. The best part, though, was seeing all of the wonderful dogs who were adopted over the past year, who could have just as easily met a different fate at the city shelter.
