A series: Shelter Signs
This sign was hung around the neck of a dog found wandering in east Dallas.
When she first stepped into the shelter through the door in my office, out of the corner of my eye, I didn’t think she was a dog. She looked like a little black sheep. So I named her Lambchop.
The back of the sign described a sad situation, which seemed to give itself away. It told a story about a single mother who “found” the dog but couldn’t afford to care for it, so she put it back outside, with this sign around its neck.
