For some women the most dangerous website to their wallet is a designer shoe or purse site. In my case it is the animal shelter website! I already have 3 four legged and there I was yesterday on the shelter site looking at available dogs…what is wrong with me?? I was supposed to be purchasing lottery calendars through their website and I “accidently” clicked on Available Dogs. Riley was up on my desk going through the photos and thankfully he didn’t see anyone that he thought would be a good fit! I don’t think this house could hold one more!
After Bella passed away Riley and I looked for buddies, but he didn’t show any interest in dogs that we met. We actually considered getting him a goldfish! He likes to have company, but doesn’t want to share his Mom with anyone. #MommasBoy
Months later I saw Bailey’s photo and I knew she would be perfect. Her eyes were so gentle and kind. I knew Riley would love her. I clicked on her photo and it said she had been surrender with Rufus. I thought to myself, “Well this is never going to work. I can’t have 3 dogs. Rufus is huge. Riley will never go for it!”
The day we drove to the shelter (just to look) I brought two leashes with me, but that was it. I didn’t tell anyone we were even considering bringing another dog home because I did not think Riley would like both dogs. I would never separate dogs that had been surrendered together because if something ever happened to me I would want my dogs to stay together. Riley hopped out of the truck and met Rufus and Bailey in the yard at the shelter. He took to Rufus immediately so I signed the papers and we headed for home. After 10 minutes into the trip it dawned on me that I did not have dog bowls, food, collars, or a plan.
We are almost to the four month mark and so far our plan of having no plan is working out just fine!
