Black Hole

Radar Love just played on my Spotify feed and I'm bawling my eyes out.

I need something to fill this empty space in my heart.

Soon.

I'm so sorry. I'm sure not being able to get Mario hasn't helped.

Has there been in progress in the dog search?

How is Leela dealing with the separation?

Just get a puppy from a reputable breeder and be done with it.

My next dog will be a rescue - there won't be much debate from me on that.

I have one rescue, a documented Mal. However there aren't that many Dutchies out there in rescues. I think I see maybe eight to ten a year get offered up for adoption through various rescues. Plenty of Mal's in rescues- far more.

Michael, I'm sorry, I know that no other dog can replace Radar and there's no timeline to get over a loss. It's really hard. I don't see too many DS at rescues either, but once in awhile they show up. I saw a couple that might not be too far for you. But also, there's no rush. I think it's also important to feel like you're ready for another dog.

This place is rescuing Malinois from the dog meat trade in Asia. They then get the dogs, rehabilitate them at a facility while waiting to go the US. They have a facebook page also.

The Mal Rescue League seems like a good rescue. They took in a Mal here a couple months ago after someone posted the Mal for free.

I saw this rescue recently, maybe the link was posted before, I'm not sure. But they have DS/Mals that are fostered in different states, Malinois and Dutch Shepherd Rescue (MAD):

I appreciated the info on the Malinois Rescue League. I reached out and am now on the transport list. I'm really excited.

.http://www.madrescueinc.org/ seems to have some great dogs. Jester and Kona's stories are so sad.
