After the walk, I bring Buddy back inside and as we pass the front desk, he stops to say hello to the staffer there. She says hello back and Buddy jumps onto the desk like a cat. And he sits and he wags his tail. On the one hand, I should be admonishing him but on the other hand, I'm very impressed. I know dogs can jump but no other dog has ever done this particular jump before, that I've seen anyway, and he managed the move with grace, knocking nothing over and landing confidently on a slippery surface.
I lift him back down onto my side of the desk. He's going to love kitchen counters.
The best way to check on the adoption status of this dog (and other dogs and cats and other small domestic animals) is to visit Toronto Animal Services adoption website or call 416 338 6668 for the Toronto Animal Services South shelter. If the dog is no longer on the TAS adoption website, it's probably because it's been adopted already.
