Well its been over 3 months since Sauron disappeared and I don't think I can go through the heartbreak of adopting a kitten again. I have decided that maybe it is time to get the dog I have wanted to get for a while.

I am now on the hunt for a puppy. The animal shelters only seem to have pitbulls and I really don't want one of those, I don't want to get a pedigree from a store so I suspect its going to take me a long time to find the right sort of dog.

Best of luck in your search for the perfect companion animal, whether it turns out to be a kitty or doggins.
Personally, I have found that the best way to get over the loss of a beloved cat is to find another wonderful cat.

Cats are more easy to have than dogs.
Dogs need excercise every day. At least one hour per day.
Perhaps the most important thing having a dog.

There are lot of things to concider if you want a healthy dog.
Cesar Millan has a very good website that might help you find the right sort.

Esme, I only ever got one puppy from the pound. All the rest, I got for free/rescues, born here and the latest two, by just putting the word out.
Make a wishlist, such as size, age, maintenace level, housetrained already etc pp.
Vets, neighbors are great sources.

To be continued in the cat thread.

I am going to check out the vet. I was going to yesterday, but Mr 99 broke his car again, so I had to ferry him around yesterday.

I am not in a hurry so I can wait until the right puppy comes along.

What a kind person you are, I bet Mr. 99 even has thumbs
and every thing, and there you are driving him around.

...and I bet there is a bus route there as well....

No, don't mistake me, its not kindness. He needs the car for his job, but (don't tell him I said this) he's a terrible driver. He's one of those drivers who thinks he is a really good driver, but is actually just really hard on cars and sometimes terrifying to be a passenger with. I could have lent him my car, but I was feeling really sorry for its gear box and didn't feel I could put it through that again.

Makes me very sad that she will not stay.............she shall perish in the wintertime.

You see, that is what makes me sad at times, because no matter how I try, I just cannot save them all. My kitty curse. I need to save them all, and cannot.

Eugene Bostick may have officially retired about 15 years ago, but in some ways that was when his most impactful work began.

Not long after, he embarked on a new career path of sorts — as a train conductor for rescued stray dogs.

My hunt for a puppy continues. Last weekend some lovely puppies came into the local shelter, but they were rottweiler crosses so would end up as large dogs. We looked at the adult dogs, and there is a lovely Husky called Bandit who my son is very taken with. However, Huskys are a lot of work as they need lots and lots of exercise.

Today I messaged the shelter to see if we could help out by taking said Husky for a walk as my son really liked the dog. However, they don't let people take them for walks, but he is a fussy eater so they'd be really grateful for some cans of single flavour dog food.

Well, if my son is serious about helping take care of a dog I guess he can help find some money to by the shelter dog some dog food.

We haven't even adopted yet and already its going to cost me money! lol!

Here is Bandit, as you can see he is a lovely dog.



If anyone wants to help me buy this dog some food that I have no intention of adopting, let me know, I can let you know what shelter he is at.

She was very surprised.

Abby may be beginning her final walk with us. We think she has Tracheal Collapse due to the heart swelling from her Mitral Valve Disorder. We were up all night. She'd settle down for a bit-then have a coughing attack and have to go out. Vet appt at 7:45am Tuesday
