 AS IT TURNS OUT THE STORY BELOW IS IN ERROR. IZZY IS LANGUISHING IN THE "BACK HOUSE" OF THE SPCA AND FACES A GRIM FUTURE BECAUSE HER OWNER'S LANDLORD WILL NOT ALLOW DOGS -- THIS IS A TRAGIC STORY. IZZY IS A GOOD DOG, I HAVE WALKED HER ... PLEASE THINK OF PEOPLE YOU KNOW WHO CAN HELP RESCUE IZZY FROM WHAT I SUSPECT WILL BE AN UNTIMELY END, NOT HERE, BUT SHE MIGHT GET SHIPPED OUT SOME PLACE WHERE DOGS DO NOT LIVE HAPPILY UNTIL THEY EXPIRE ... IF I AM WRONG ABOUT THAT, CORRECT ME ... BUT DOGS DO NOT JUST EXIST AT THE SHELTER AD INFINITUM ... THINK ABOUT IT ... 

 

 

 

Tiny Town, USA – The details of this story are still being worked out and until they are, it's not in the package and under the tree. But damned if it ain't close. 

Hard to follow facts: A dog named Izzy wound up at the Tompkins County SPCA at about the same time as a dog named Dizzy. 

TTT's missing animal unit spoke to the owners of who they believed to be Izzy. For various reasons "Izzy" had to be left at the SPCA. This is not a cool practice, by the way, getting in a tight spot and leaving your dog to be cared for by the SPCA while you figure out what to do, because the SPCA has dogs enough to deal with.

So, one member of our canine unit believed he was walking a dog that belong to people he knew. Bad news: Izzy's behavior deteriorated. She started snapping at people. When that happens, dogs go "out back" for serious training and 10 days of no outside contact with different people. Essentially the larger public does not see these dogs and they are removed from the adoption list. 

Our canine unit was asked to track down the owners and see if arrangements could be made to return Izzy before she became a lost cause. So he did. And guess what?

The alleged owners didn't know what the hell he was talking about. Their dog is named Dizzy. It was a complete miscommunication all along. Dizzy was safe in Pennsylvania with family members.

Boy did we feel stupid here at Tiny Town Times!!!

Then today, who knows what act set this chain of circumstance in motion: Begob! Izzy's owner shows up to identify her as her very own, lost apparently, due to economics and other matters.

In other words, there's a darned good chance Izzy will be reunited with her owner. 

If that don't beat all! 

Send in YOUR shaggy dog story. We also are happy to hear about Kitties who came to stay for Christmas and were returned home.

All best, 

C. Penbroke Handy, challenged and up for it
