in other news


Meet my foster buddy, Mr. Al. The rescue named him that but I've been calling him a variety of names - Mr. Nanners (short for Bananas Foster) and PJ (short for Puck Jr).

He's a great little doggy. He has separation anxiety that destroyed my blinds, but that can be fixed over time. He does great on the leash and loves the cat. He loves people and kids, too. Also, he is an awesome navigator in the car and loves Petsmart. Such a sweetie little hound dog.

Part of me wants to keep him but part of me knows I don't have the time for a dog as a single person. It really limits my social activities and if I don't have a social life, I resort to sitting on the couch watching endless hours of vapid television programming.

I guess I don't need to worry, though, because they think he might have an adoptive family who wants to meet him this weekend! I'll be sad to see him go but it is for the best.

He looks so sweet. If only you weren't 3000 miles away and if only he didn't have horrible gas... :)

You have such a heart to shelter an animal. But what happens when you get really attached to one and you feel like keeping it?

It's hard to say. I guess I'll know this weekend. I really don't have time for a dog year-round, though, and that's not fair to him.

Also, once he leaves, I'll open up the bill of over $300 for the blinds he destroyed in my house. That kind-of helps with the detachment.
