I stroll down the runway, all eyes are on me. Everyone wants a piece of me; "Jean Knee , over here...over here Jean Knee , over here, pick me, pick me ,pick me!"
"I love you!! you are fabulous!!!!!!! Wooowww she looked right at me!!!!, Jean Knee, May I lick your hand?!!!!!!"
Just strollin down the runway, that's me. " hellooooo everyone,,thank you thank you, hello, how you doin?" You wnat to fullfill this same dream?????? Of course you do. Take yourself to the nearest animal shelter, stroll down the dog-runway and this could be you.
This was me on Saturday. A long Holiday weekend. What better time to choose a new companion for my dalmatian, Polka Dot? HMMMMMMM so many cheerful, longing faces, wagging tales. Oh the pressure, how to choose just one? the right one? For Polka Dot? Try them all out of course.....
Some hours later we've adopted a black lab mix, female, 2 year old canine. Named Penny.
Penny meets Polka Dot, they sniff each other, scuffle, repeat. She checks the yard out, we pet and play with them for quite a while. I go inside, return after 15 minutes. They've had their first dominance fight. Polka Dot got his mass kicked, in a big way (so glad I missed it, that's my Polka Dot she's messing with!) Pet-n- play lots more, we venture inside. Things seem calm outside, no scuffling or growling, ahhhh, the sweet feel of a family gently melding together.
We go outside to praise Penny. She's gone, she jumped a 5 foot fence and is running with the neighbor dogs.
Repeat all of the above countless times. COUNTLESS TIMES. We take shifts breaking up fights, returning errant dog to fence on and on and on. We are invited to a swim party, oh no we can't go because we have a toddler, er new dog, to look out for. On and on and on and on.
Through a Holiday weekend. Yes, this could be you.
to be continued.... I know the absolute total suspense is killing you...it's killing me too,.. . .literally
GUESS WHICH ONE IS POLKA DOT
