Over the past several years the kids have wanted to add a dog to the Superhero house. At certain times the opportunity came up but that time wasn't right for us.
For example: A 10 month old male Yorkie, MY DREAM DOG, was needing a home.
Why we didn't take him: I just had Baby M and was on my first day of depression meds when we got the call.
Then there was the call about a rescued Yorkie. I took Lil O to see her but she wasn't a friendly happy dog. I am assuming that there was some abuse involved. Hence why she was rescued.
Then my sister thought her mini Schnauzer had gotten knocked up by the neighborhood wienie dog. I toyed with the idea of taking one of the pups. Turned out she wasn't pregnant.
Now to get to the point!!!!!!
We have been given the opportunity to open our home to a 10 month old Shih Tzu male. His owners aren't able to spend much time with him because they aren't home. As you know I am always home! HA HA! He belongs to my friends cousin. It is heartbreaking for all involved. They are sad about giving him away but they aren't able to be with him like he needs. Then my friend is sad because she wants the dog to have a better life even though she knows this is hurting her cousin and niece.
That's Oreo. Isn't he a cutie pie??? I tease my friend that if we get him I am changing his name to Fat Boy. H had a friend that had a chihuahua named Fat Boy. I thought it was hilarious! I told H that I could change the spelling to Phat Boi. I tease or do I?
Then there's me who just wants the dog to love and be in our family. I just know he'd fit in perfect in our crazy house. The kids would love him!!!!
Superdad is leery because he's not fond of the breed. He wasn't fond of yorkies either BUT agreed to let me get one when I thought the time was right. :) Plus, there is the whole money is tight right now issue. Adding one more mouth to feed worries him.
I just have a gut feeling that this puppy should come here to live and I know he'd have a wonderful life here. There is one thing this house has lots to offer and that is L O V E!
