Porky's Adoption Attempt

We took Porky to the Furry Pals Rescue at Highland Village yesterday, and tried to adopt him out. When I arrived after a half day of being crated and hanging out with strangers, he was more than a little glad to see me coming to pick him up. It was pretty sad really. They told us that he would be harder to adopt out, because he was black. They weren't sure why, but it was pretty clear to me - it's racism, man.

Porky is a lucky dog, because Robyn located a wonderful new friend, Cody, who wants to take Porky home with him. Porky will never have to be displayed like a slab of meat for sale again. He should be going to his new home in the Heights next Sunday, cross fingers!
