Once upon a time long ago and far away a handsome Pup was Picked by Pretty from a Prison called the Lexington County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. This Pup had been dropped off at the jail by a man who said he’d found the “cute little dog” runnin’ along the highway near Red Bank, SC. Pretty is a natural Rescuer and happened to be working with the warden of the prison on totally unrelated business. She wasn’t shoppin’ around for a new Pup but the Fickle Finger of Fate led her to that moment in time and guess who went home with Pretty who had just started makin’ whoopee with the old woman Slow who wasn’t too old then and loved Pretty and loved makin’ whoopee. Shit house mouse. The things I could tell. Heh, heh.
And now the best news! Pretty is comin’ to Worsham Street to visit! She called Slow and told her she loved my country song about pinin’ for her and she’s pinin’ for The Red Man too so she’s drivin’ all the way from Casa de Canterbury to Texas for her vacation later this month. The Red Man is a happy Pup and all clouds of gloom and doom have disappeared in the excitement and anticipattion of Pretty Pets. Paw Snaps and Twirls and lots of Barkin’, too. Yee Haw! I am countin’ the days until Pretty holds me in her arms.
Now Sports Fans, there’s a Pup down the street from us who needs rescuin’. She’s livin’ with a Make Believe family while she waits for her own Pretty to show up. She’s already got a name which isn’t exactly right somehow, but then I didn’t name her. Marigold. That’s her name and it reminds me of the Marigold Hotel movie with one of my personal favorites Judi Dench but that’s neither here nor there.
This Pup will need a special Peep because she’s had a rough start in life and will need lots of attention to make up for it but she looks like the efforts will be rewarded with a Smokey Lonesome Soul. So Bark Back to us if you’re lookin’ for love in all the wrong places and Marigold might rescue you if you rescue her.
Get me outta here Percy…The Red Man really isn’t Good Deed Material and I need to check my calendar for the Pretty dates.
