Holly and her ugly sweaterUnderneath this oh-so-uncool sweater is a sweet soul with sad eyes. Holly came into the shelter this week, covered with mats all through her overly-long poodle hair. Despite the pain she must have been in as hundreds of mats pulled at her tender skin in every direction, she has the sweetest disposition (I know this, because even my Bratty Maddie, the office loudmouth if there is a dog that she doesn't like, kept her snout shut when meeting her over the baby gate).
As the dog over-population is our community gets lower and lower, that doesn't mean that dogs and cats with homes are not found in horrible conditions. I guess that is the next step in making this a humane community for cats and dogs.
I think Holly likes this plan.
