Since mom and dad are divorced please find my dog a new home

Paul Wu of Kirkland, Washington got the surprise of his life as he was leaving for work the other day – a King Charles Spaniel was left outside his home, with a mysterious note hidden in a plastic bone attached to his collar.

The note read:

“Please take care of Mr. B. (or find him a new home?) He is a King Charles Cavalier spaniel. Six years old. My parents got divorced and Mr. B was supposed to go 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.”

The note pulled at Wu’s heart strings, and he took the dog to work to try and find him a new home. His co-worker, Robert Kuchcinski decided to take the dog home to live with is family.

“I’d hate to be a kid making that choice,” said Kuchcinski, who is married with three children of his own. “It didn’t seem right that it would go to the pound.”

Mr. B was checked out by a veterinarian who said the dog was in excellent health, apart from some dry skin and plugged ears.

The author of the note still remains a mystery.

“All I want to do is let this person know, that we found him a good home. That’s the whole message,” said Wu.

“Hopefully they’re happy with the dog having a good home,” says Kuchcinski, “And things are fine with them too.”
