Hounds Home For The Holiday

Regular readers of this blog are sometimes very astute, erudite and no doubt handsome people. Threw you a bit of a curve there didn't we? Well, never let it be said that we denizens of the marbled halls here at IM Central fail to give praise where praise is due. OK, let it be said, because truth is...we do.

But not this time. In the comments to yesterday's post we heard from a Mr. CJSzar...or Ms., or Mrs., what do we know? Anyway the commenter in question had this to say:

We stumbled upon a feature from your blog back in Sept. of 2005 featuring our pup MJ's Poison Ivy! Adopting her was a life changing decision and we are so happy that she completed our little family. We are giving her some extra hugs after reading this reminder of where she came from.
See? And you thought this blog had absolutely no socially redeeming value. Oh wait, we're the ones who think this blog has no socially redeeming value. Well, no matter. If you put enough monkeys in a room with enough typewriters eventually they'll produce one of Bush's State of the Union speeches, and if we write enough posts, eventually one of them will actually be useful.

So what do you say we do it again Effie?

Effie is very happy and curious. She likes to be with people. She is a quick learner. She is energetic and playful. She loves attention and likes to cuddle. She likes to play ball. She is a Second Chance at Life Dog from the Coldwater Prison Program. Effie would do well in a working family home with well-mannered children, 10 and up. She is good with other dogs and would probably be fine as an only dog. She tends to be a bit vocal, so would do best in a single family home. For more information about this dog, and other rescued racing greyhounds looking for homes, go here. If you don't know about the plight of racing greyhounds go here.

And if you 'd like to know more about the good work the Second Chance for Life program is doing for the dogs, and the prisoners, go here.

Special Bonus for Christmas, Hanukkah, Festivis, Sol Invictus, oh heck, here's a picture of MJ's Poison Ivy just because we feel like it.
