Well, I guess we did the best we could. He was older than we thought, and his heart was failing.
He died today at 4 p.m.
He had just spent 7 months in the shelter. Nobody seemed to want him, so I took him home and had him for seven weeks, and he had a good time. He slept in the bed with us every night, and went for walks 3 times/day, and when he had to pee he only had only to go into the yard.
He loved Cheetos and ice cream (in very, very limited quantities, I promise you), and he loved to snuggle.
Always tears, always sadness. I don't like this life leads to death plan, not at all.
Here's the story of BOB the dog:

Sedona is a 2 year old female, sheltie mix. She and her puppy were dumped in the night deposit of a kill shelter and were doomed to be euthanized. How very, very cruel that is!!! Anyway, now Sedona and her puppy are safe in our rescue. They were very bonded but now they are okay to be separated, and Sedona will be spayed and ready to go by the end of September. She is up to date on shots, heartworm negative, etc. She is shy at first, but quickly warms up and is sweet and loving. She is great with other dogs, rides well in the car, walks nicely on the lead but we do want her to go to a home with a fenced-in yard. She weighs 27 lbs but will probably put on a few pounds prior to her adoption.
Sedona is available through Far Point Collie Rescue. An application, home visit, Vet and personal references, and an adoption donation fee are required. Call Yvonne at 570-374-2742 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org Sedona is located in the Selinsgrove area of Central Pennsylvania.
This pet is up to date with routine shots.
This pet is already house trained.

I just want to give a heart felt thank you to everyone! I can't believe how everyone pulled together to help me find Gus! Just take a look at the size of this distribution list. Everyone of you helped me in some way or another, whether it was in offering me support through this terrible time, searching for Gus over the internet or pounding the pavement with me hanging flyers. And the amazing thing is that I have never even met about half of you! I don't think this kind of response would have happened in any other city in the world.
Thank you New York!! I am forever grateful to every one of you...

Meet Bob Hope, the cartoon dog.
I call him the cartoon dog because he looks like, well, a cartoon dog, or like the picture a kindergartner produces when asked to draw a picture of a dog. He is a brown dog with floppy ears and a long tail.
I took Bob home for a long weekend, to give him a taste of the good life. This has given me the opportunity to observe Bob the (handsome) cartoon dog in his natural setting, and to share said observations.
BOB is gentle, quiet, housebroken, and good with my cat. Bob likes children. Bob is a dream to walk on the lead. Bob is practically unobtrusive, and loves to nap. Bob doesn't chew on anything except for treats given to him. Bob knows how to sit and lie down, and to come when called.
BOB is darned near perfect, except that he does seem rather depressed. I'm waiting for him to come out of his shell, and will update this post over the next couple of days. We're having a BOB‒b‒que in his honor tomorrow night. I betcha he likes steak ... just a hunch.
One more thing ‒ Bob makes his bed.
When I brought Bob home last night, I took a king‒size quilt from the closet, laid it down, and folded it in half.
Bob took over from there; before I could finish making it into a bed, he picked up the corners and folded it into thirds, and then folded it in half again, and laid hisself down.
Later, we were watching tv, and I guess it was too loud for him, so he dragged his bed into the other room, folded it again, and went to sleep. BOB kinda rocks.
It's a good thing that BOB is an arranger of bedclothes, as Bob really, really likes to sleep.
This poor fella has been in the care of the wonderful BARC shelter since APRIL! He was found on the street and brought to BARC by the cops. Bob weighs about 50 pounds, is about six years old, is neutered, and has all of his shots. He likes men, women, children, cats, and other dogs. I'm honestly trying to find something wrong with him, but, so far, no go.
UPDATE: BOB FINDS OLYMPICS CLOSING CEREMONY B‒O‒R‒I‒N‒G.
AUG 25, 2008 UPDATES:
BOB LOPED IN THE YARD! He is a graceful runner/loper.
BOB BECOMES FAMOUS, IS AN OVERNIGHT SENSATION! BOB would like to thank the Academy,
and his agent, the lovely Miss Heather!
