Appreciating the DRC and being given the opportunity to help!

Ten hours, five emails and a phone call. That has been the first step in saving a doodle's life. Here is the chain of events...

12:30 am(ish) Jacquie gets an email from Michelle with a petfinder link.

1 am(ish): Jacquie sends an email out to me, Kristen, and Nina, asking one of us to follow up in the morning.

6 am(ish): I look at the email and link, and email out that I'll call the shelter

10 am(ish) After impatiently waiting for the shelter to open, I call and get info on the dog (who I've mentally named "Falcor")

10:30am(ish): I email all the details out to Jacquie, Kristen, and Nina.

10:35(ish): Kristen replies to all that she's just 40 minutes away from the shelter and will go and pull him


Maybe this won't seem so amazing to other people. I'm just continuously awed by the complexity and simplicity of communication between people who care.


Helping is a powerful thing. For anyone reading this who thinks that the only way to help the DRC is to foster or donate money (not that both aren't much needed and appreciated!) please realize that I got to help this morning by clicking send and making a phone call. And I feel like I made a difference for this sweet doodle boy! AMAZING stuff, helping the DRC!!

Chance is a great name for him!!! So happy that he's in such good hands and is being given the opportunity to have his perfect life!

I didn't realize Chance was the same guy, I kept waiting for Arthur or Falcor to show up!  I'm so glad he is on the path to his forever family.

I've just read Chance's story.  It sounds like this poor guy has been through some pretty rough times.  Frannie, what you just described here is the beginning of saving this Doodle and creating hope for his future.  The spirit of cooperation and dedication that all the DRC volunteers display every day is what makes this all possible.  You guys are truly THE BEST!

Chance is a very good name choice for him isn't it?

Wonderful post Frannie.  Anytime you need a pull or transport in Nashville/TN area, give me an email or call. I signed up with that group on here. 


Falcor is gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, I like Arthur. I hope Kristen is getting these suggestions, lol.

I like the name Falcor but then I am a Never Ending Story fan.  Can't wait to see him all cleaned up. What about Arthur (as in King of the round table)?

It's funny; both Michele and Adrianne saw that listing and sent it separately. He was listed as a wolfhound mix, which is pretty common with the F1s in the shelters. One look and I knew he was a doodle.  Searching Petfinder under "Irish Wolfhound" is how I ended up finding Jack.

I think he looks like a Nicholas, or a Nick. I've been saving the name Nico (pronounced Neeko) for awhile now, but he can have it if Kristen likes it. Her call.
