Damn. Just plain DAMN. Can anyone on Long Island come to this dog’s rescue?

Earlier this week I posted a post titled “Blackie, in Wantaugh, NY.”   Several people—Noni Mausa, Yves Smith (on Naked Capital), Bill H, and Dan Crawford (who made the post a Featured Story)—tried to help out. On Wednesday, Bill reported that Blackie had an approved adopter and would be picked up at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter in Wantaugh on Long Island later that day.  Hurray!

But today Bill received this email, which he forwarded to me:

Hi Bill-

We just found out this morning that the approved adopter can no longer adopt Blackie.  It would be great if you could continue to share & post him.  Are you the writer for the 2 blogs below?  If so, could you update them to say his adopter backed out?

Thanks so much,

HAPPY UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who helped out on this–including, most certainly, Yves Smith, Noni Mausa, Bill H–and the kind dog lover who adopted Blackie.
