OK, so this is Kodi
He’s going to be staying with us for a while. Possibly until April.
Now, before you start cooing over how once again Crazy and Crabby have stepped up to help a dog in distress, I’m going to tell you right out: This is a paying gig.
Short story: Mom found herself in a situation. Mom had to board Kodi. The place where Kodi was being boarded turned out to be not so good. Mom had a friend reach out to see if other (home) boarding arrangements could be made. Word got to Crazy. Crazy could use a little extra cash right now. Crazy talked to Crabby. Crabby said OK . Crazy contacted friend, friend contacted Mom, and now you know the rest of the story.
We can’t do free anymore. Every time we do it ends up costing us more than we bargained for – and I’m not talking about the dog, it’s usually the people. People who get free expect a lot more than paying people do, and it never ends well.
We don’t do paid anymore either – we have 14 dogs for heavens sake!
Given the above, we are mystified as to why we allowed Kodi to slip through. Actually, we’re thinking Fate hasn’t messed with our minds lately so it must have gotten bored. It appears it put us in this situation to keep Kodi happy and safe until Mom gets on her feet.
Y’all know that any dog who makes his or her way through the gates of Run A Muck Ranch has no worries, and that is what we can give Mom for her money.
Mom is still very much in the picture and will be taking Kodi on family outings on her days off. Today was the first such visit, and Mom arrived to find a happy Kodi, together with his leash and his packed lunch, ready to take on his adventure. What can I say, we aim to please!
For Kodi’s part, though it was a bumpy first day, he woke up this morning deciding he was OK with the situation.
You’ll probably be seeing more of Kodi over the next few months, but just know, he’s a Special Guest and not a permanent resident of Run A Muck Ranch. I’m positive that even as a Special Guest, he will have stories to share.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, Crabby needs another box of tissue for his uncontrollable sobbing.
