    Thankfully, This Tail’s Ending Is Not Melan-Collie

    | Pembrokeshire, Wales, UK | Pets & Animals

    (I’m a volunteer at a small animal rescue that takes in dogs and cats to be re-homed. A woman brings in a border collie that’s a bit excitable, but otherwise okay. I’m busy walking another dog so I don’t get a chance to meet the woman. I go back to the office and overhear the owner of the rescue and another volunteer talking about the woman.)

    Owner: “She’s moving to Australia, and she wanted us to take the dog.”

    Volunteer: “I suppose that’s fair enough.”

    Owner: “Except she’s taking her other two dogs.”

    Volunteer: “Okay…”

    Owner: “And she wanted to have the border collie put down.”

    Volunteer: “But there’s nothing wrong with the dog! That’s awful!”

    Owner: “I know. I told her that we only put a dog down if it’s incredibly vicious. She then agreed to give the dog to the rescue, but she wanted us to put the dog down if it wasn’t re-homed in a few weeks!”

    Volunteer: “You’re not going to do that, are you?”

    Owner: “Of course not!”

    (Thankfully the border collie is still alive and waiting for a nice, caring new home!)
