We went for burgers last night after my son’s big jujitsu event.  Stopped in at Pet Valu first and found Gilbert.

Abandoned at a kennel, living at the Humane Society since October.  My husband brought me over to him and we knew, our Patty was going to have a housemate.

Not sure how it will go, their meeting each other (shoe on other paw now for Patty), but Gilbert is here, in the office for a day or so, so that he can feel comfortable.

Last night, after we’d filled out the necessary forms and left Gilbert, anticipating that we would hear from them the next day, as we waited for the Mama burgers and fries, I asked my son how he felt about Gilbert.

“I love him,” my son said.

He’s home.

I see a headline about a Rottweiler puppy and its mistreatment.  I read how in the end the Human Society has to put him down.

Gandhi’s famous quote about how you can judge a society by the way it treats its animals makes me sad for all of us.

I hug my sweet cat afterward but I can’t get the puppy out of my mind.
