The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

51 hours with Edgar

Edgar's new owner

It took most of yesterday morning to hunt down a safe place for our latest stray dog and a trip out of state in the afternoon, but this happy ending was worth the effort.

As soon as Melissa saw her new visitor down the hall we knew we were in the right place. She greeted him with a super nice welcome and announced that his name is Edgar Allan Poe.

Melissa runs a pet rescue operation, but decided Edgar was special enough to join her personal family of critters.

On the way home Anna and I recalled some of the other strays we've been lucky enough to find homes for. Edgar makes the 7th stray since we moved here that either made their way back home or found a new one.

Big thanks to for making it easy to search rescue options within a comfortable driving range.
