Thank you for the flowers! I know what you mean about the animals. I have a soft spot for animals, too, but am not able to take them on at this point in my life. I used to attract "stray" people, too, when I was younger, but I reached a point where I needed to take care of me and couldn't do both. But it does tug at one's heart when there are situations that I know I can't fix. You did your best for this poor doggie and gave him a second chance.
