Nice article and good to hear the MP is stepping up to offer to adopt Blackie! However I still don't know why Blackie can't remain if it seems most people love him (76 opposed to 1). It still doesn't make sense to me to go around and have to ask people who didn't express a preference either way whether they want the dog in their estate. If it bothers you that much I think people should speak out either way.
Here's a lovely story about the school that came together to help their school cat! I just spoke to the Principal and offered help if they needed it and thanked him for the way he was running his school! He said that he felt that this was a lesson that they would take with them after leaving school, rather than any grades that they take home!
Thanks Vegancat for sending both in!
