So we have a surprise addition to our family today - and his name is Rotten Ralph. I kid you not. My sister's boyfriend's father adopted him from the pound maybe a month ago, but went in the hospital with some serious issues. So they were keeping him for a couple days, and were going to take him to the pound, or try to get him into Providence Animal Rescue League (no-kill).
But Ralph is so old, and honestly really ugly. One of his eyes is all messed up from when he was a stray, so he's half-blind, and pretty deaf. I'd say he has to be over 10 years old. Oh, and he has, like, 2 teeth. (hence the name, given to him by boyfriend's dad) He's a shitzu, which to me is not the most attractive breed even without all that.
But he is such a sweetheart, oves people and is really mellow. I knew if he went to the pound he'd get put down - he is so old, and doesn't have a lot of selling points, physically. So I convinced Rob that he won't be any trouble and deserves a home for his remaining years. Surprise! Now we're a two dog family.
Rotten Ralph says hello! I don't think anyone is going to want to see a photo.
