So I am looking in my local rag and they always have a pet of the week up for adoption.
Well, today I open it up and staring back at me is this gorgeous wee staffy x, 11 years old. Her face reminds me of my old dog Chevy who died last year. She doesnt look like Chevy but she look slike she has the same "wiseness" and "bearing" I gues you'd call it.
Anyway, I show my partner, And he's like "awww I like her, give them a ring and see what shes like with other dogs". We breifly talk about the expensive of taking on an older dog who i likely going to cost a bit due to her senior years and decide that if she gets on with other dogs that we are happy to provide all this care if it means she gets to live out her final years in a home where she will be loved.
I rang the number and they were closed.
I am not sure whether to be pleased about that and let it go or try again tomorrow LOL.
As most of you know, we already have two much loved mutts (Barney and Pippi). We were not considering getting another dog (at least not until we only had one left) but this wee girl just has such a gorgeous face.
I often think that dogs are drawn to you, or you to them, for a reason.
But now I don't know what to do. I would love to give this elderly lady a loving home...but ya know, we hadnt thought about having 3 dogs before. Cost isn't an issue at all. And having 3 dogs isn't an issue really either, they would still all get loads of attention.
Obviously, this would all depend on whether she got on with other dogs, and if she liked us (a condition of adoption is that she meets all family members first)
Not really sure what I am expecting from this, just wanted to blab about it a bit LOL
I guess I will give them a ring in the morning and make some enquiries.
