Collie Hoarder

My good pals Loki and Gracie posted about this about a week ago.  The story makes me and Dog Dad a mad.  I am sure that both Great Auntie Essex and Uncle Deacon are angry from across the rainbow bridge.

On Friday 29 August over a hundred collies were rescued from in Tomball, Texas which is near Houston.  The last news article we found was dated 5 September stated the total was a 139.  Many of these collies were in sad shape.

30 August - Article on Seizure

2 September - Update

5 September - Number now up to 139

Dad has a hard time understanding how a hoooman could do this.  Neither of us want to write much more about this.  I am sure Dog Dad would start using some of that colorful language he learned during his time working in the oil patch.  

Dog Speed,

we saw this on the news made us mad and angry and sad too. You know what makes us even madder though - it the rules and regulations they have and the hoops they make you jumps through to try and adopt. I know they have to make sure the pups are going to the right place but the process puts off many suitable people and it almost seems like the rescues don't want to give the pups up themselves!
