That's how many people applied for Ruby. As one of the review crew I have to go through each and every one of them and decide which ones I think are good enough to get passed onto the foster mom who makes the decision on who gets Ruby (with board of directors approval and passing all the other hoops to jump). I hate it when 1 dog gets so many applications and has no issues. It makes it hard to cut the list down. And there are so many in FBRN right now, I know my foster (having allergy issues) got a total of 30 applications in 4 months. Ruby got 185 in 2 weeks. The review crew was so happy to have her put into pending and no more apps could be taken. Do you know how long it takes to go through 185 apps? It's not a fun job by any means.
