Unique New York

Just like a regular woman, only crankier.

A little sadness

So, we have a bit of bad news. The woman from whom I adopted my little Leo, Sandy Ridner, of Miss Rumples Orphanage, has passed away from cancer. She was awesome. She found me a little Shih-Tzu who was facing the death penalty, and got him to New York from Atlanta. The only thing she asked for was a donation, not an adoption fee. Needless to say, Leo is a happy addition to our family (without him, Russ would have no one to sing shrill songs too, since our other dog, Toby, is deaf). Anyway, Russ and I left our pups with her in her lower east side apartment, which was filled with adoptees and her own dogs, when he went to go meet my parents. When we sat down for a bit, she introduced us to Fuego, her little pomeranian, who lived on top of the armoire in the living room. He could not tolerate the other dogs as well, and so she put water and food up there, and he lived among the plants. Occasionally, he would poke his little white face from the foliage, bark at the other dogs, and then retreat back into the rainforest.

We were lucky to have known such a kind woman.

    Ah, really sorry to hear that. Do you know what will happen to her insanely funny/entertaining rain forest dog?

    Fuego and all of her other pups are going to live with a woman in Arizona.
