But every evening, I'd find Roger scouring the pet section of Craigslist, ooo-ing and ahhh-ing and letting out deep pitiful sighs of longing. "Come here and just look at that little face!" Which, of course, would be my cue to slip into the role of the nagging-non-animal-lover-wife, and say (oh so pleasantly) "Not yet, remember?"
To which he would say, "Nobody's bringing anything home....I'm just looking."
We've got her on a 24-hour trial period, and if she doesn't work out, she's going back. The good news? She's quiet, well behaved, doesn't bother the cats, and has taken a liking to the children.The bad news? Mesa keeps gettin' up in her business, growling when anybody goes to pet her, and has started circulating a petition for her immediate removal.
How long does it take until you know if two dogs are going to get along? And is it possible (as we heard from Mesa's previous family), that some dogs prefer being an only child? Any animal behavior specialists out there? Khristie, where are you?
