I was typing an e-mail to opposing counsel yesterday when Bax called me. She asked if I would go down to the cafeteria and buy as many plain bagels as I could. I ran downstairs, got eight bagels, and headed to the parking lot.
There I found Bax and Rescuer with three very hungry abandoned dogs.
Some mean person dumped them in our parking lot. Apparently, this is not the first time this has happened. Rescuer adopted her own dog after finding her in this same lot last year.
I don't understand how people can do this. These three dogs were so incredibly nice and gentle. They deserve to be cherished by loving families, not left to their own devices in a hot parking lot.
We gave them water and bagels.
I snapped a few quick photos and headed back up to work, but Bax and Rescuer very kindly stayed with the dogs until help came or until they decided to drive them to a no-kill shelter themselves. I'm not sure what ultimately happened, but I know those girls would do anything to save these sweeties.
This little guy was so adorable. I named him Parker, as we found him in a parking lot. He was probably about a year old. Rescuer had a leash in her car, so she put it on him for safe keeping.
This guy had such a bad case of mange. We all felt so bad for him. He was so friendly and constantly wagged his tail at us. I started off calling him Mangy, but then I decided that wasn't such a nice name. Instead, he became Mangi (think mangia without the "a") because he was so hungry.
Mangi and Pita were very attached to each other.
I really hope they all find homes. Please think good thoughts!
