Jan 2011

Malcolm came from a shelter in Los Angeles. We got 2 Chihuahuas from there, and when Monroe went to a foster home, we took Malcolm here.
He is the sweetest, cuddliest little guy. So snuggly. Wants to be with me all the time. On my lap, or leaning up against me.
I was so impressed with him... usually Chis from the shelter are a bit skittish and untrusting.
The first day we brought him home, he let me bathe him and clip his nails!
He slept in the bed with us, curled up against me all night long. What a sweet boy.

He was adopted at his very first adoption event, but we received a call from them the following afternoon.
Apparently, he was SO well behaved, that they thought it was ok to just leave him out with free run of the house while they were at Church. Which probably would have been ok, had they not ALSO given free roam to their flightless parakeet.

Yeah. You can see where this is going.

They got home from church to a house full of feathers, no bird, and a fat Malcolm.

I feel badly for the bird, and for the kids who now have no pets, but really?? Leaving a new dog alone in the house with a bird who can't fly?? o_O

So we got Malcolm the Bird Killer back, and it wasn't long before we got a call from a woman who wanted to adopt him. She needed a companion, a dog who just wanted to be with her all the time, and Malcolm was a perfect fit.
He went home yesterday, and I'm sure he's living the pampered life now.

Oh, and his new home doesn't have a bird. :)

Malcolm was only at his new home for about 3 weeks. She called and said that he wasn't bonding with her, so we went and picked him up.
He was here for a couple weeks, then was adopted again by someone who we hope will give him everything he deserves.
Reports are that he is doing well so far!
