Dog Search

Greg is at it again, tempting me with more photos of dogs needing rescue. We missed out on the last one because we were smack dab in the middle of selling our house. We were that {} close to getting a dog, but in less than eight hours we had to give her back to the rescue group. It hurt us terribly, but that little girl found a new home right away so she did okay.

Still it left us minus one dog.

Greg wants a female rottie and I have my heart set on an Australian shepherd or similar breed. I love dogs that enjoy the outdoors and like to run. Chelly, my last Aussie baby was always at my side. I miss that.

Not that we can't have three or more dogs. We certainly have the space now and Tank needs the company. He's become terribly spoiled, snoozing on my lap, getting constant back rubs and racing Greg when he sees him on his 4-wheeler. That dog lives the life of Riley.

I'm not sure he'll appreciate sharing the spotlight but he's such an easy going boy, I'm sure he'll get used to it.

Now all we have to do is find him a sister.

Don't forget about the naming contest. I-Needa-Name-Contest is still going on until January 9. Go here for more details.

Good luck in your search for a sister for Tank.

Thanks, Dru. Tank was very lonely after Chelly died. They were best friends. Now that we are finally settled, it's time to start the search with gusto.

I dreamed, last night, that we got a Golden Retriever puppy... so very cute.

I ran into a lady with a new Beagle puppy at the vet on Friday, which is probably why I had puppies on the brain and I really, really love Goldens. OTOH, I tend to get mixed breeds because they usually have fewer health issues.

Now, enough about me... good luck on the dog search. I wish I had a hubby open to getting more than one dog at a time.

Oh, guess that was back to me again. Sorry. *G*

LOL! Unfortunately, I'm the one who has to be the voice of reason. I don't mind having more than one dog. I just want to make sure s/he's the right dog.

Greg falls in love with every furball he finds. He's a big softie.
