Good thing I have two flights to sleep through tomorrow!
Honestly, it's after 2 now... The alarm goess off at 4. I'm counting on Chris to wake up. :)
I met the dog tonight. She was cuuute. Way older than in the picture.. Not a puppy anymore; she's grown up at the shelter. And 40 lbs! 15 lbs bigger than any of our dogs... Hehe.. one of the rules Chris laid down about any new dog was that it had to be the same size or smaller than our current dogs.. He's very strict, as you can tell. I said, um, Magnolia's 40 lbs.. is that OK? "Yeah, that's fine." Very strict. It's okay though.. They may have to squeeze to fit in their crates together, but they'll still fit.. :)
So she's no tiny puppy, but she's still oh-so-cute. Confused when we took her out of her room. Then she got scared. Tail between the legs. Shaking. I had her on my lap and she was shaking terribly, just like Ellie used to do when I first brought him home. I couldn't get her attention after that.. It was hard to get to judge her character, but from her description on the site and from what they tell me at the shelter -that she's a great dog but with no obedience since she was raised at the shelter.. I think it'll be good. It'll be work, but worth it!
So yeah, Chris & I are going to get her.. one day, next week, when we can work it out. Monday would work only they aren't open. Tuesday I have class. It may wait until the weekend.
One of her kennel friends got all worried when she came out to see me.. She stood on her hind legs and was looking out the window for her. My heart broke. Seriously, my eyes were tearing up.. I sized her friend up and realized she was DEFINITELY too big for our house. I wish I could take them all home, I really do. But atl least this girl is not going to have to live her whole damn life there, never realizing there's more to life than that... As Sebastian snores next to me as I type this. All dogs deserve a life like these guys have, ya know?
Okay, now I'm REALLY not going to get any sleep.. Yeesh.
