More on dog search

The quest goes on, and I appreciate the comments I've received on this subject.  Thanks "gracehoper" for the comments about the Bradshaw shelter.  I watch their website every day, and receive info almost daily of new dogs to the shelter.  

I also met a man with a shepherd puppy at Liam's soccer game and got to talking with him about the puppy.  He has a contact who called him about his puppy, and he offered to let this contact know of my search.  I told him I was looking for a male black lab or german shepherd puppy, so I hope putting the word out will help.  I know puppies chew and have certain behavior issues until they grow a bit and get used to the routine.  However, I think I would like to be a part of shaping the behavior and training rather than maybe finding an older dog with issues that I might not like or be able to handle.  We'll see - I'm not as obsessed about this as I was, so whatever develops is going to be ok with me.

I finally got the pilot light fixed on my heater, but I haven't heard it click on as yet.  I was sure the heat would come on in early morning but I didn't hear it.  I'm warm enough wearing my long underwear, sweater, etc.  I took some laundry across the street to the Park's laundry room this morning.  It was so nice in the sun I decided to come back home and get my clothespins, so a lot of the wash was line dried.  

It has been a beautiful day.   We'll have to wait until Sunday for a little more rain, but in the meantime let the sun shine!


  1. I guess it's time to have my heater turned on too. It's down right cold. We never had any Fall weather it just went straight to Winter. But it was a beautiful day here too once it warmed up a little

  2. I sure hope you find the perfect pup. I do know that I don't ever want a puppy again. Too much work but then labs are so much easier to train than a dachshund. I also don't want a puppy in case it would outlive me. I don't have anybody who could take it. Enjoy your sunshine but I'm still hoping for more rain for you guys.

  3. Glad you are getting some nice weather. Love fresh line dried clothes. Rain coming up for us too. You guys need it, we sure don't.
