How Much Is That Doggie in the Window

The office supply place where I normally shop downsized — half of their space went to the big pet store next door and now that shop has a place where they showcase dogs that are available for adoption through one of the local shelters.  When I was there the other day, I decided to browse and fell in love with a large brown dog in one of the cages — I even asked if I could take her into the official play area to spend extra time.  She was affectionate and gentle and I thought she would be a perfect companion for our dog Cinnamon.  I went next door where my husband was buying printer paper and cajoled him into hanging out with this dog — and though he admitted that the dog was wonderful and in the past we’ve had as many as four dogs at once, he really loves having just one. I grudgingly agreed — though I yammered about this wonderful creature for the next three days and even dreamed one night that I brought her home.  After a while I couldn’t stop myself from going back to see if the dog was still there. She had been adopted — probably a good thing or she’d be sitting here next to me now.

    Although the dog in the pic is most likely not the one you saw, you’ve just GOTTA love that face.

      You are correct — the dog in the photo is not the one I saw at PetSmart. The picture comes from an online photo base but I agree — it’s a great looking dog! (“Mine” was just as cute!) 🙂
