Almost





This past year w/ the whole bullying incidences, I've been wanting a larger dog to hang out in the yard w/ Isaiah...but something that would also be a good family dog, that Xander could wrestle with, and that would be good w/ company. I had decided I either wanted a German Shepherd or a husky. I've been scouring the shelters and craigslist for a while with no luck. I went again Friday on my day off and saw a beautiful Siberian husky. I played with her for a while and took her for a walk. She was so sweet and gentle. I took her around the other dogs who were barking their heads off, she just looked at them and walked away. I took her around a cat who hissed at her, she wasn't phased. I tugged on her ears and her tail...she kissed me. I fell in love! I took a couple of pics of her and went home to show the husband...Mr. No himself...and to my surprise after he saw how much I wanted her, he said yes. So I grabbed Xander and we went to go get our new dog. We got to the shelter, and I told them I was there to take Skye home...they asked their routine questions...do you own your home, do you have a fenced yard, do you have another do...I answered yes to all the questions...the lady said we would need to bring our dog in to make sure they get along first. Crap! Kylee can take a little bit to warm up to other dogs. So I called Rob to bring Kylee in. Kylee was scared of the other dog...but she did ok, but the pound lady wasn't convinced. Finally it got too late and they were closing so she told us to sleep on it and come back in the morning. Well at some point before the night was over Rob changed his mind about her.

I have to admit I was devastated...in my mind, she became mine as soon as he said yes. I know it's stupid, I never had her, but I still felt like I lost my pet. I'll be honest, I'm still sad about it, I don't know why...I wish I wasn't...but I am. A part of me keeps hoping he'll change his mind...but I know he won't and if he did it would be too late I'm sure.

That's terrible that he would change his mind at the last minute like that!

I'd get the dog anyway.
But that's just me. ;)
