hi. i'm moe.
dear friends of bananie,
my name is moe. i am some sort of lab/chow hybrid with small, floppy ears, and a really great tail. i'm happy and swarthy and i'm about three years old. for the past year or so, i've been loved by a great dad named jim.
you may have read about him on bananie's blog. (isn't she a fabulous writer?) if you're unfamiliar with my story, i'll sum it up for you (since typing with paws is a little cumbersome): before he adopted me, jim was a reclusive kind of guy whom everyone was afraid of. he kind of gave off that drunk old guy vibe. and then he got me, and then he started hanging out with our neighborhood dog owners (aka the dog mafia), and soon, jim made fast friends with everybody, just because i'm that kind of dog. you know, friendly. and have i mentioned my ears?
anyway, what no one around here knew--including me--was that, all along, jim had been sick. for awhile there, just having me around seemed to be keeping him going strong. but. well. lately, he's lost a lot of weight. and he can't eat anymore. and now, he's in the hospital. i haven't seen him in two weeks. thankfully, the dog mafia is taking turns making sure i get all the loving and walking i need. but, i hear the whispers. jim is probably not coming home to me. jim doesn't have much time.
i guess the point of my guest blog entry is this: do you, or anyone you know, want to adopt me? i'm a very good indoor/outdoor guy. i never do my thing inside. all the other dogs love me, and i'm very good at frollicking, cuddling, and guarding my house with a big scary woof. (but my smile gives me away.) with a little training, i could probably get along with cats, but for now, i can't resist chasing them. i know all about sitting and staying and treats.
so, please let bananie know if i can come be your moe. i've been told that my presence saves lives. who can beat that in a dog?
