Puppies. We all love puppies. Puppies are adorable, fun, playful and cuddly. WE ALL LOVE PUPPIES. Recently an acquaintance’s dogs had an accidental litter. They live out in the “country” on a large ranch with lots of animals. Don’t get me started on the spay/neuter deal, because you all know how I feel about it. But they did have a litter of puppies nonetheless. So, of course, we were offered a free puppy. However, after lots of thought, I turned down the offer to adopt a new puppy…
For months I’ve been wanting to add a fourth dog to our family. Twice I’ve found an American Staffordshire Terrier mix that I wanted to adopt but the same question came up both times: “Do you know if she’s good with cats?” This is what I would ask the shelter volunteers because after all, I have two kitties. And not only that, but my tabby cat Joey is disabled. Although I was heartbroken because I wanted these dogs, I wasn’t willing to risk Joey’s safety. So what happened when I found a fourth small dog to adopt? I risked Joey’s safety.
