“Please take care of Mr. B”
Paul Wu was pulling his car out of the driveway in Kirkland, Washington, when he saw a small dog.
“He would not go away,” Wu said.
Wu stopped his car and the dog approached. Around the dog’s neck, attached to his collar, was a bone-shaped poop bag dispenser, inside of which was some money and a note.
Here’s what the note said:
“Please take care of Mr. B. He is a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel. Six years old. My parents got divorced and Mr. B was supposed to go to the pound. I think he has a better chance with you. This is my birthday money for any of his care. He is used to kids, not other dogs. He’s a good boy. I know God will take care of Mr. B – Everyone loves him…especially me. Thank you.”
Wu took the dog into work, where his colleague, Robert Kuchcinski, offered to help, according to KING 5 News in Seattle. Kuchcinski took the dog to a veterinarian, where Mr. B was found to be healthy except for some dry skin, and plugged ears.
Mr B. didn’t have a microchip, and lacked any identification that included his owner’s name or address.
Kuchcinski took the dog home to stay, introducing him to his wife and three children.
“I’d hate to be a kid making that choice,” he said. “It didn’t seem right that it would go to the pound.”
“All I want to do is let this person know, that we found him a good home. That’s the whole message,” said Wu.
Here’s KING 5′s report:
