I will be moving in to my own apartment soon. This is the first time ever I have lived alone. Like really ALONE. No kids, no roommate, not even a pet. Which got me thinking. I want a pet.
When my kids were little we got a kitten from the neighbor whose cat gave birth like clockwork every few months. Because of his coloring we named him stone (because this is a sponsored post I am not allowed to include a picture but trust me he was cute). But they really wanted a dog. As soon as we moved in to a house with a yard our first stop was to the local shelter where we found the Link to our hearts.
Stone died suddenly no notice, nothing, I just came home from work and he was lying on my bed in his favorite spot. We had Link put to sleep after an arduous time with hip and leg problems, she stopped eating couldn’t walk and it just wasn’t a quality of life that she deserved.
As time has gone onI have considered getting another pet, but my landlord (Kathy) was not amiable to it.
But now! Now I will be living alone (hmmmmm I should probably go check the lease before I run out to the breeders) and I think I want a pet again.
There are so many types of animals to choose from, I vacilate between dog and cat all the time. Can you believe how cute these guys are?!
I have always leaned towards the larger breeds, thinking if a dog was small it was more of a toy than a dog. But those little Mini Wirehairs are something else indeed.
Boo! I just checked my lease, no pets allowed! Maybe I can get a fish.
However, if you are looking for a specific type of dog you can check with the AKC Rescue Network and they can direct you to rescues in your area. When adopting a dog from a shelter be sure to do all of your homework. ASK QUESTIONS!
