Ty’s Last Late Night Run

Around 2:00 this morning Ty Steele, one of our foster dogs, woke us up.  I say “us” because he went from Marie’s side of the bed to my side, back and forth, poking his nose into our faces.  We thought at first he was wanting to play and we encouraged him to go back to sleep.  He has been good lately about sleeping the night through.

But last night we had a going-away party for Ty because he’s leaving on transport today (thanks to the good folks at Jefferson County Humane Society, who loaned Steele Away Home their big van when the one we’ve been using and had planned on using tomorrow was suddenly made unavailable to us).  The Oinky he enjoyed so thoroughly probably made him thirsty and he probably drank more than usual for late evening – maybe I’d better take him outside.

Ty’s History

Ty was an apartment dweller, which is hard enough for an active dog, but that apartment was located above a BBQ restaurant!  Can you imagine the torture that was for him?  So that was not very successful; which is not surprising since he is an Australian Shepherd.  (Aussie’s are true working breeds: unemployment does not sit well with these guys!  Since being here he has assigned himself as Head Beagle Herder — much to Josephine’s chagrin.)
