Yesterday was Bo & I's 12th anniversary. WooHoo!
We couldn't think of anything special to do, so we decided to drive to Lubbock (about 2 hours away) for the day and just goof off and eat out. While we were there we remembered that Lubbock is where my neighbor, Suzanne said she got her little dog, so we thought we would call Suzanne, get the number to the breeder and just go LOOK at dogs. Yeah, that would be fun. Well, we got the number, called the breeder and headed out to their house. When we got there, she said she didn't have any puppies ready right now, but she had two 5 month old female Yorkies that she was saving to use as breeders, but had decided they were just too small, so she was going to sell them. They were about 3-4 lbs each. Oh dear, that sure is small, but they were just so cute. Another couple was there looking at them too. We stayed for 30-45 minutes and of course, we couldn't help but want one, but I just couldn't decide for sure. (Such a big decision for me, you know). The other couple took one of the dogs and left. Bo & I decided we would go back to town and eat and just think about it for a little while. I worried and fretted about it the whole time. Should we? shouldn't we? should we? shouldn't we?
After a couple of hours, as we were driving around we just happened to wind up at Petsmart. Mmmm. Imagine that. So we wandered in and bought a few dog things. OK, we were gettin a dog. ....Oh dear. ....I am so nervous about all this. We called the breeder back to tell her yes, we want the dog.
I'm sorry, I just sold it. She said.
You're kidding! Did you really? (After all the agonizing I did about it?)
Yes, I did. I really didn't think you were going to take it. .....But since that happened, I do have a 6 month old female that I was going to use as a breeder that I will sell to you. She is a little bigger than the other two though. She weights 5 lbs.
OK, we'll come look at her and see what we think. (We didn't mention that we had already loaded down the car with doggie things)
Well, of course "Lilly" was so very cute too! We filled out the papers, wrote the check, loaded her up, and headed back home.
So now we have a dog. Oh my gosh! Me, with a dog. If you know me very well, you know just how odd that is. I have never liked dogs, ever. But, I like Lilly alot so far. We'll see how it goes.
Today Lilly & I went for a bike ride.
Oh, and Bo says this is a trial. He will hold off getting too attached to Lilly. If I should change my mind in the first couple of months, we can sell her. "Carol with a dog" is not written in STONE. (I think maybe he just said that so I would say yes to getting her) LOL.
--But I'm going to give it a good shot.
