Well This Isn't Very Much Fun

I mean, I went as far as a nationwide search for the hoopla of it, there are some of the same mixed breed I am looking for here and there, but definitely nothing near HERE.  Yet, anyway.  I dunno, maybe some other breed of dog will totally capture my fancy and I will do something completely different.  I have never, now that I think of it, repeated the same breed twice.  Visla; German Short Haired Pointer: German Shepherd Mix; Great Danes; Catahoula Mix; Golden Retriever; Chihuahua; Rat Terrier; dogs when I was a kid and I didn't know what breed they were - neither did my parents.  

Okay, here goes my heart to melt mode again, I just now opened a letter that came from the emergency clinic, specifically from the vet that had to do the dirty work.  I am going to just post, verbatim, her hand written note:
"I send you my heartfelt sympathy during this difficult time of loss.  Coco was a very sweet girl, and was so lucky to have so much love in her life. May the memory of Coco and the good times you shared live on in your heart forever. Sincerely, Dr. Crane"  I was over the tears until I read that note.


  1. It's better to get the RIGHT dog than to get a dog RIGHT NOW. You'll know the right one when you see him/her.

    We got a nice note from our vet after Emma passed on, too. Tough to read, but a nice gesture on their part. Take care,


  2. Yes Agree w Scott. Wait and let the dog come to you. Let it pick you and you will know instantly....

  3. I have absolutely no intention of just going out and finding "anything". As I said before, it has taken me up to 6 months to find the dog that I wanted in the past. I surely hope it doesn't take that long this time. I am a bit picky on what I end up with and there are several factors that go into my thinking of when it's the right dog, but as you say, I will definitely know right away.


Today marks day one of my manager's vacation.  I'm hoping to get a couple days off, even 3 if possible, but without asking.  I don&#...
