This afternoon, on a whim, I decided to go to the Lost Dogs Home to see if I could adopt a dog.
Hubby and I have been wanting a dog for ages and go all gooey when we see one in the street. I will stop work to go pat the pet therapy dogs.
So off I went. We are after a small dog, as we have a small backyard, who can tolerate sitting and watching telly with us.
No such luck in the cages – an Alaskan Malamute, a Bull Terrier, a German Pointer and a Bull Mastiff! The littlest one was a Kelpie cross named Kramer.
It was love at first sight. He didn’t bark, just walked up to the wire, stuck his face up against it and looked at me as if to say “you know you want me”. The Vet nurse got him out to have a play and we bonded, and I even taught him to sit. He even sat for a cuddle. He was a lovely dog. Unfortunately, Kelpies require big backyards and twice daily walks, which we cannot manage.
Another little fella was bought in, a maltese cross shih-tzu (a shih-teeze??) He was a small dog (tick), very quiet and cuddly who was just happy to sit and be patted. Unfortunately, he is on hold for somebody, but if they don’t take the dog, we can adopt him!!
Now for the Ben Cousins match – four words – who gives a shit?
