Got a call from the pound and I decided to not adopt the bulldog we saw. The woman from the pound was very negative about him, and after listening to her for a while I stopped her talking and said "you are being very negative?" She explained that she didn't want anyone to be under any illusion what they would be taking on.
This bulldog had allergies (like we don't know anything about allergies in a dog!), and had just had an eye operation, so would need lotion put on his eye twice a day for the rest of his life. Then she thought he would need an operation on his knees and hips, despite the fact the vet had found NO problems with them. On and on it went. She figured he would need $250 spent on him per month.
She also said there were 17 other people wanting to adopt this dog, so I said fine let one of them adopt him. I feel so sorry for this poor bulldog if he only has this very negative woman advocating for him. So dh has said we should just forget about looking for another dog for a while, and I agree.
Pleased with myself as I managed to take down the snow fences one handed on Tuesday. Dh just has to take down the posts and put the snow fences away, they were too heavy for me. So I have decided there will be no more snow this season!!!!!
