Special to the Times

Romeo, a 4-year-old husky-mix, is looking for a new home just like all of the other animals available for adoption at the Humane Society of the Nature Coast.

Romeo is a 4-year-old husky mix. He is eager to learn and has quickly learned his basic commands. Romeo is easygoing, is willing do anything for a treat and is happy when he is pleasing his human friends. He gets along well with other dogs and loves to go for a dip in the pool. Unfortunately, Romeo has heartworms, but the cost of his treatment will be covered by the Humane Society and is included in his $100 adoption fee. Romeo is current on his vaccines, microchipped and neutered. Inquiries about adopting Romeo or other dogs and cats can be made at the Humane Society of the Nature Coast shelter at Wiscon and Mobley roads, Brooksville. The shelter is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. The shelter is run strictly on donations; no government subsidies are provided. Adoption fees vary. For information, call (352) 796-2711. You can visit the website at www.naturecoast humanesociety.org.

    Well, poop.

    Nothing else really matters, does it?
