I came home from work and this little guy was hiding out on my front patio.

I started a Facebook thread.

Everyone told me that I need a dog and to keep it.

I wanted to go through the proper channels as I knew someone was misssing a pet so I had plans on calling animal control in the morning.

The dog followed me all over the yard, it was all dirty, muddy and dusty from some rain we had.

I provied the dog with a couple hours of companionship outside and some hydration, he was really thirsty. I found some dog food from when I dog sat, and he was also very hungry. I figured he would be outside all night. I left the outside lights on to keep the bad dogs away and my .40 S&W stun gun helps...we have coyotes

After a long and at times very inappropriate facebook thread a coworker sends me a text, she had a friend that lost a dog. His name was sparky.

I let the dog in the house. I said "Sparky"

His ears pearch up...and jumps up on the sofa, laying between my back and the rear cushion...he was no longer scared.

The dog owners just left my house. The daughter had been very upset. The dog accidently got out this morning and had been missing all day. They had been looking all day and putting up posters.

Several people on Facebook told me to just keep the dog as they are expensive....there is no way I was going to risk keeping someone else's pet. That is not simply fair to the other people, if there was any other people...

It ended well.

It was an awesome dog.

I saw your fb post and I was hoping you'd keep him. Looks like it's a great ending regardless. Good thing he found you.

Maybe this is what you need to do, just get a dog, boyfriends are to much trouble.

I have two cats, I fostered another cat and kept her too. I now have 3 cats. I don't want another pet.

And Yes, you are right about the boyfriends.

Some of my friends were really trying to lay the guilt trip on me!:biggrin-new:

If I wanted a dog, that would be the kind of dog to have.

My mother is going to need 3 surgeries in the next year, I will have enough to deal with while taking care of her cat while I work and take care of my mom.

I am not really looking for a boyfriend either.

A nice girlfriend would be ok.

Yeh, dogs are a lot of work. That's why I like the felines. I wish I had more time, I'd have dogs too.

Don't tell the boyfriend your house is full of cats, they frown on those things.

When the owners showed up to pick up the dog the last thing it did was walk over and stand by my leg.

I think it wanted to stay.

It's easier to be gone for a day if you have a cat.

I love dogs, they just are not for me right now.

You owe me a new keyboard, it's now drowning in white wine.


Yes, it's a wine night.

You can be gone a long weekend. Just put out water and dry food. Yes, you'll come home to a full liter box(s), but that's why I had a cat door built that leads to the garage. It doesn't stink up my house.

I have a dog and a cat. They get along, for the most part. They are both pretty old, now, but my dog is much bigger (45 lbs to 5 lbs), so the dog always wins when they do fight.

My cat has always been fascinated by my mom's little rat dogs. She has a Yorkie and a poodle/Schitzu mix.

Big dogs keep you warm on cold nights. They stay in your bed all night every night, they don't steal your money and they never mistreat you.

They make you share half of your sandwich everyday though.
