This is Ice (Box). He was adopted when he was a few weeks old from a humane society (the same place Phoebe came from). Someone was going past a house and heard a noise in the direction of the porch. It sounded like a puppy whinning, and it was coming from a refrigerator! Some idiot left him in there to suffocate. He was taken to the Mercer County Humane Society in Harrodsburg, Kentucky. At the time, a woman boarding a horse at our farm, had a Rochester based dog rescue called "Woof Wagon." She worked with the Kentucky agency over the years, and told me about the puppy. When I told my son-in-law Kevin the story, he immediately made arrangements to adopt him, and he was brought to Brockport. They already had a black lab adopted from Lollypop Farm...another rescue they named Jaxi. Yesterday she died of a heart attack at the Vet's office and now he cannot understand where she is. So....I picked him up this morning and he is hanging out at the farm. He is a very sweet boy and will be fine. Tonight his family will come for dinner, and when he goes home with them, he will start a new life as an only child. So... it is a dog day.
