Puppies and Rainbows: Black Dog

01 Nov

Bowser was a black dog. He knew this was a bad thing, because his foster mother told him. She would say things like “Poor Bowser. You’re so sweet, but it’s hard for black dogs like you to get adopted.” Then she would scratch behind his ears a little more and kiss his head.

When he and his family were deemed big enough and old enough for adoption, they were brought back to the shelter. They were so cute the volunteers wagered on who would go first. Nobody bet on Bowser.

Even with the rainbow collar, he was still a Black Dog.

(Don’t worry about him too much, I’m pretty sure this whole week is going to be about Bowser)
