We just agreed to take a blind, 9-year old female Dachshund named Callie. The Bitterroot Humane Association in Hamilton, Montana, called us about her yesterday. We had the shelter drop her off at a vet clinic in Missoula today for a medical and eye exam, and Alayne will go into town tomorrow to pick her up. Callie's story is a sad one: Her owner moved and left Callie behind with some guy the owner knew. This fellow didn't want the blind Dachshund either and promptly took her to the shelter. (Wouldn't you like to find the owner and have a few words?)
So tomorrow we'll welcome Callie to the ranch, where she'll be cherished. More info -- and photos -- on this girl once we see her!
