Dog Day

I hadn’t realized how many of our friends got news from the site here until I didn’t post for a few days. Sorry, folks. The server has had the Christmas Flu the last week or so. Intermittent and grumpy.
Just wanted to update everyone on the dog. Short version: we don’t have him anymore. We kept him for 24 hours as part of the “loan-to-own” program that the wonderful Blue Dog Rescue group has. We enjoyed having the fellow around the house. He was smart and seemed very teachable, even though, at 40 lbs and 7 months, he was still in his puppy phase. In the end, we determined that a bigger dog is probably not what we want after all. It was a very hard decision, one that we didn’t make lightly, but it helped that we weren’t taking him back to the pound. Blue Dog is no-kill and they really strive for a good match between animal and owner. Did I say they were a great group?

We’ll probably scale back the search for awhile, but ultimately, I think we’ll go for a dog that doesn’t take Erin for a walk when she puts the leash on him. Kinda funny to see, actually.

Thanks for all the thoughts, emails, and calls. Scott and Bess: Pixel is still welcome to visit. 🙂
