Indecisive and Klutztastic
The Doggy Debate Continues:
We were so close to having decided what kind of puppy to get. We'd found a breed that we both liked and all the information about the breed indicated it would be a pretty good fit for us and for what we were looking for. We placed an inquiry with someone who has a litter to place and we talked to someone who has one that we've always adored. It was starting to look we'd be new-puppy-moms in just a couple of weeks.
And then Saturday morning happened.
On Sunday, SweetPea was flipping through ad after ad for puppies, stopped at one, looked at me and asked "Why mess with a good thing?" She turned the laptop around to show me the ad.
For an Akita.
We were so close!
After doing more research today online, I have to say I'm a big Akita fan. I know we got extraordinarily lucky with Tatiana. Every time I think of Akitas I think of her and how cute and fluffy and sweet and protective and loving and hyper and protective and big and fluffy she is. She's such a beautiful dog with so much personality and she's just about my favorite thing ever.
But would another Akita be the same as ours?
I don't know.
Then SweetPea was looking at more puppy ads and popped her head up to say "What about a Rottie?"
To which I replied: "Do you think it says something about us that the only dogs we seem to be interested in are banned breeds?"
I guess the search continues.
In the Meantime:
I've already warned SweetPea that when I get home tonight, Tatiana and I are going for Walkies, and, if she wants to go, she'd better have her shoes on when I get home.
SweetPea said that we need to go shopping tonight. But, you know, I'm not "normally" home until almost 6, anyway, and the shopping can surely wait until then.
I managed to step on and break my iShuffle earphones. Because I am a dumbass.
Hey! They made it a full year... That's kind of impressive!
Too bad they're essential to the survival of my sanity.
