The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it

3 June 2011

I am considering a dog.

I have been talking with himself about it, and it seems like a good time. We’re in a house, with a small garden, a quiet estate, and a big field nearby. Plus as he isn’t working at the moment he has the time to spend with our potential pup during the day.

And today at work a message went up, some one had a message up saying they have 6 puppies looking for new homes. Their mother is a collie-cross, the father is one of two spaniel-labrador crosses. And they are so very cute.

So I am very tempted. Very very tempted.

Himself wants a smaller dog. I’d much prefer a bigger one, these puppies look like in between, so that’s a good compromise, right? Right?

We’ll have the weekend to think it over and then we’ll see.

    Good luck with your decision to get a dog or not. I love my dog. He was a rescue from Hurricane Katrina almost 6 years ago. Even though he's a lot of work, I can't imagine my life without him.

  2. I have always wanted a dog! I would ask santa for one when I was little and, alas, I never got one :(

    Good for you for waiting until a good time to get one. Good luck with your decision.

    Aw, a dog! I would like a dog, but having one here is just impractical. However, you offer very compelling reasons for getting one yourself, and it does sound like a good time, so… I know you'll make the right decision. Has anyone asked Lady M her opinion?

      Well we have been watching how she reacts to the neighbours dogs and they don't seem to freak her out, so fingers crossed. I figure we'll get a baby gate so the dog can't get upstairs, Mew will be able to have a space all of her own if she needs it.

    That's great that you have a rescue dog, we were thinking about going to the pound/shelter too, but we think that Lady mew (our cat) will get on better with a puppy rather than an older dog.

    Aw :( Dogs are great to grow up with. But I think that Santa doesn't have a license to transport live animals. Or so they told Karen in Outnumbered :)
