A friend's dog was missing. While others were out searching through neighborhoods, parks and the like, I was scouring the web for postings of a found dog. Days went by ... I religiously checked certain sites where updates and postings were frequent. My heart sank seeing all the missing pups that were posted and the fur babies that were being found but not claimed. Then, a sigh of relief. Her pup was found and they were finally reunited! :) But a routine had been established. I was still finding myself checking the sites. I told myself I didn't need to anymore... but God, an instinct, what have you... drove me to keep looking. Then, I saw him... like lightning in my soul... sparks... truly a "love at first sight" kind of moment. MY dog.

Those ears! I wanted him. I checked the information on him. He had been found and turned into the local pound. He was set to be euthanized in 5 days. Not on my watch! I was already in bed winding down for the night, but I got dressed, told my sister about him and informed her that I was going to go get him the next day. I went to the store and got some basic supplies.

I could barely sleep. I was so excited. I debated on a couple of names like Milo and Sam, but ultimately, to me... he looked like a cowboy. So I named him after my favorite "cowboy" John Wayne... specifically his character in McLintock.... I would call him Mac for short.

The next day came and I was at the pound before it opened. I was the 4th person in the doors. I took a number and waited for my turn. People came in and would walk right back in the facility without checking in. Part of me was a little annoyed because they weren't following procedures, but I didn't know the circumstances, so I tried not to worry about it. The first 3 people had dogs to turn over/turn in. Then it was my turn. I waited for a staff member to take me back to meet my Mac. After about 15 mins., a gentleman came and brought me to the meeting pens. My heart sank. A lady, who I had seen waltz through the facility earlier with out checking in, was there in the pen with her son... and MY Mac! The gentleman told me to wait a moment while he checked on what was going on. He waved me over to the pen after a quick conversation with the lady and another staff. Apparently, she was from a rescue and was there to pick Mac up so he wouldn't be on the euthanasia list. She welcomed me in the pen, told me her story and was relieved I was there to adopt Mac. I squatted down, pet Mac and burst into tears as I told her how excited I was to get Mac. We hugged, talked a bit more, then she gathered up her stuff and went on to rescue more pups :). I hung out in the pen with MY Mac.

He was covered in ticks. He was scrawny. He had nails that were way too long. He was covered in scars. He was adorable. He was perfect. He was mine.

McLintock McGruff, AKA "Mac" or "Mackie Mac" the Redbone Coonhound was adopted in real life on Feb. 24th, 2016.

My sister and friends also refer to him as "Macaroni", "Roni" and "Machiavelli".
