mini rant. I got new pictures of the puppies. They consisted of the 2 boys and the 2 patched girls. Umm not the ones I was interested in. *Sigh*

I make him stick to the original plan.

it has taught him to put a lot more planning and prep into his decisions before he makes them that's for sure. OTOH I don't make snap decisions so if I did decide to get another puppy, it wouldn't be a spur of the moment thing (which it also sounds like your decision was also well though out) so he really wouldn't have anything to gripe about anyway.

He did tell me to go ahead and go- but sixteen hours driving alone would not have worked I think he is regretting it now. Don't know what he expected me to do.

Dropped my camera about four feet onto solid asphalt.

My 50mm lens literally snapped in half and the camera is broken. Done for.

Everyone I called to cry to won't answer their phone. I'm drowning my sorrow in pie. And maybe tequila. Or rum. **** this ****.


My roommate at least got a laugh out of it when I said, "GREAT, another thing that I've broken that I can't afford to fix." It's sad but true. I don't want to think about this any more.

Telling myself there are worse things that could happen but I feel like I lost Byron all over. Hadn't even met her and I was attached. I've been crying all night. Even worse now I told the breeder.
I read this before and meant to reply. My other half had major cold feet before we got Fred too. Like zomg it's not the right time, we shouldn't be doing this, what are we doing.... It was horrid. Tears, tantrums the lot!

I couldn't have gone and got Fred if he'd stayed like that, but actually..... He just had cold feet. We talked it through. And we got him, even though it was scary and unbeknown to us, was going to be the hardest year ever.... But it still worked out he just needed to share how he was feeling, and actually, I'd rather he did that than just pretend it was all ok and he was feeling 100% fine.

Is it too late to chat and change your minds?? Can't you just call the breeder and explain and arrange a later collection? I'm sure they will understand, theyre human I hope it works out. Tell him my other half would die for Fred now! He'd have sorely regretted it if we never got him.

Had a root canal done a couple months ago. Now out of nowhere I have pain in that tooth and sensitivity to cold and hot. That shouldn't be possible. Everything in that tooth should be deader than a doornail. I so do not want to go back to the dentist, I am still paying off the last time

my friend decided to tell me last night that when we go to drink, I get loud and talk about how I want to take the bartender home.


I can't go out and drink anymore.

Correction: I need to take you out drinking.

I think that might be something a lot of people to through when getting a new dog, or a new ... Anything for that matter. There really is no "perfect" time for anything, there is (IMHO) "being prepared as best as you can" time ... I think that's as good as it gets lol, for everything from a new dog to a new truck.

Every dog I have ever brought home regardless of age I always had a "what was I thinking!!!" Moment.
