foolin' around

In honor of Friday the 13th, Lost Dog Rescue is collecting photos of happily adopted black dogs.  Black dogs are often the last to be adopted - we've heard the same thing through our greyhound rescue group. It's such a shame that even animals are subject to being judged by their color.

If you aren't familiar with Lost Dog, not only are they an amazing animal rescue group, but they also have a delicious cafe in Arlington, Virginia that serves fabulous pizzas and sandwiches (all named after dogs, of course).

Anyway, I wanted to share this video of our very happy (and slightly weird) black dog, Banjo. He was originally picked up as a stray in Georgia (unfortunately, failed hunting dogs are often abandoned in the southern states and we think this might be what happened to him) and taken to a shelter where he was given a week to live. He was then rescued by Lost Dog and brought up to the Northern Virginia area to their rescue kennel. We were lucky to adopt this guy ten months ago and he keeps us laughing every day.

I realize that the lyrics to the song are referring to a different kind of "foolin' around", but I thought they were the perfect accompaniment to Banjo's antics. Besides, a dog named Banjo has to have a country song as his soundtrack (and also, I needed some music to cover up my maniacal laughing in the background).

This is great! I run a blog about animals, and am a big supporter of rescue. Always nice to see happy dogs who have found homes. :)
