Thankful Thursday:) My New Puppy~RAMBO

Yesterday, my neighbor Kathy wanted to go over to the SPCA of McKinney over on Stacey Rd. She asked if I’d ride along with her because she was planning on getting a new kitty. She had seen several that she liked on the website. She had two cats, but one got sick a few weeks back and he went to kitty heaven. Poor Mo was missing his buddy Stan, so she wanted to get him a companion.

We drove over there and all the dogs were yelping and barking and wagging their tails. And, the cats were doing their elusive, “Yah, what are you looking at, Lady.” She found the tabby kitty that she was looking for and was elated. In the meantime, I was admiring the cute tiny puppies and the larger older dogs, with absolutely NO intention of bringing one home.

All of a sudden, this gorgeous white dog barked at me, then bowed down at the edge of his cage and whined a long sad song. I bent down to say hello, and he rolled over on his back as if to say, “Pet me, love me, take me home.” I thought to myself..”Absolutely NOT!” I like my freedom too much.

I’ve been lucky these past five or six years to doggie sit for Mr. Mike and kitty sit for Kathy or Diane. So, I really didn’t miss having a dog. We used to have dogs. When I was married, HE…the EX…A.H, would just bring home a dog or find a dog at a breeder’s website and just bring him home without ever consulting me. That’s why I always called them his dogs. I never had a say in it. I just had to feed them, walk them, and take care of them.

When this adorable dog picked me out, I thought, why not. I get to pick and choose this time. I’ll have a say in this decision. Mr. Mike has moved away, so I don’t get to watch Bella anymore. When I inquired why this adorable calm dog was there at the shelter, the volunteer said, “Mr. Rambunctious” is a handful. He has too much energy and can’t sit still. He’s come back three times when the owners said they couldn’t handle him. This adorable dog was just lying there quietly, submissively, and asking to go home with me with those big brown eyes.

So, Kathy got her kitty and I brought home RAMBO, short for Rambunctious.

Puppy kisses.
Hopefully I got you! HAPPY APRIL FOOL’S DAY!!!!

This is really my neighbor’s dog, Maisey. But, she does love me and I’m still pretty happy that I don’t have a dog to take care of, not even this beautiful well behaved pup.

      Thanks. That was my goal. Some of my really good friends know me better. But, I’ve even fooled some of them on occasion. Thanks. Have a good one.

      She is adorable, and still growing. Tim said that she has many allergies, so food is a big problem snd she has to get regular shots. I’m glad not to have such responsibilities. But, she is adorable.
