I have posted for advice in the non-horses area, but need to blog here too
I'm going to get a lap dog, I'm going to get a lap dog, I'm going to get a small bundle of fur to cuddle
So, the story is this:
We have two dogs who we love, and now we live where we do are easy peasy to live with.
On Tuesday a lady knocked on the door, a little anxious, apologising for trespassing. She has two GSD bitches that she is (long story short) trying to rehome.
I promised to talk to hubby but said probably not as we're not looking for a third dog.
On Thursday I remembered to tell hubby, who astonished me by saying yes if I want to take one - he is a sucker for German Shepherd types. I don't list GSD's as my favourite big dog, and if I was looking to get another big dog it would be a different breed. Anyway..... It got me thinking.... Do I want another dog?
I've always wanted a lap dog
So I browsed the dog rescue web sites. It's SO SAD there are so many big dogs out there, all of them with big trusting eyes. Why do people breed so irresponsibly?? What's wrong with people?! Pay to get the dog fixed or don't have a dog!! Anyway. I am still not looking for a third big dog so I have hardened my heart
to all those lovely dogs in need of a home but I HAVE found that there is a smaller number of unwanted small dogs.
So..... Tomorrow night I will call a lady who has four six month old Bichon-Frise/Lhasa Apso x Afghan Hound puppies for rehoming. I will ask her a couple more questions about temperament and if she gives me the right answer.... On Wednesday I will go to collect one.
