Default Mustard is still with me

Well, Mustard was supposed to go an awesome home a week ago, but it (yet again) fell through. This poor dog, first he had a foster lined up that didn't work out, then an adoption that fell through, and then ANOTHER adoption that fell through. The first because they decided they couldn't handle two dogs, the second because not everyone in the household wanted a new dog. The third is the most heartbreaking... A dog experienced, pit bull experienced family with no other dogs (perfect for Mustard) and four kids (Mussy loves kids!) with a work schedule that meant he would hardly ever be home alone. Why didn't they take him?

The wife's STUPID sister convinced her that Mustard's "history" (or lack there of, basically) meant he was more likely to "snap one day" on their kids. The woman didn't really know what to believe, but with the seed of doubt sewn, felt that she couldn't put her kids at risk. I would NEVER place a dog with four kids of that dog wasn't sound as sound can be, which I told her, but nevertheless... He's still with me.

On the bright side, Ketchup has a new home! He's now named Rex and he's doing great! He plays fetch in the yard, goes for lots of walks, and dotes on their grandchildren.

Um so... the real point of this thread is to tell you guys that I still have Mustard, and... I.. um.... I'm not so sure I really want that to change???

Awww! What a face!

I know how frustrating it can be with potential adopters backing out... especially when you start to get attached to a dog.

I'm just gonna say this... He fits in with your color scheme perfectly Therefore its meant to be <3
The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.

Some things are just meant to be. I bet years down the road you'll thank your lucky stars those adoptions fell through...that is...if he stays with you. If you're in a position to keep him and you're in love, why not?

LOL. Love that!
"If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." -- Samuel Adams 1776

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."
