Hot Dogs! Get 'Em While They're Hot!

Yesterday afternoon, I spoke briefly with Dallas Animal Services manager Kent Robertson, who says in his latest "Pet of the Week" video, posted below, that if you're interested in adopting from the city pound, you'd best hustle: "We've had over 40 adoptions every week for the last couple of weeks. People are starting to realize what a wonderful adoption center this is." I asked Robertson what the numbers had been before the spike; he said he'd get the exact details and phone back, so, right, we'll update accordingly. He did say that 33 animals had been adopted last Saturday and Sunday alone. "Fun stuff," he added, in quite the cheery tone of voice. Now, how 'bout Huck? Who's a good doggy? Who's a good doggy?
