I Want This...

Sometimes our goal of getting out of debt first seems to be taking sooooooo loooooooong...

Hope there's another Samuel or William out there when that day comes!

(sigh...)

Dreaming of dog days to come...

They are beautiful!

I agree; they are so very tempting. I'd take the adult, having lived through Jackson's first year of incredible chewing prowess. To me a dog is a need, not a want; if I had to live in a cave and chew on bark for food, I'd want a dog there with me!

I would love to have one of them too but we already have 2 dogs and they are short haired....I do love that.

I had just broken my habit of looking at the rescue sites! Now look what you've done. :)

I agree with Michelle, my dogs listen to all my rantings and let me love them, and they are still able to ask for dinner without annoying me... . I'm a certified dog person or should I say certifiable?

Robbyn said...

Shiloh, yes. Yes. Yesyesyes.....
And now I must stop looking. For a few minutes. :)

Michelle, I TOTALLY agree with you about a dog being a need not a want. However, we're at that crucial Every Penny Goes to Debt point and made a promise to ourselves to wait till then...or it will postpone our move. Ugh. Watch out what you promise yourself! :)

Kim, I love so many sorts of dogs and would love to have several different kinds. I guess right now our best idea of the right "fit" for us (or should I say ME) is an Aussie. But take me to a shelter and ubboy...watch out! :)

Nita, I hereby inflict all my Can't-Have-An-Aussie-Angst on the deserving....YOU (heh heh) Seriously, there are so many dogs on those rescue pages that seem to jump right out when reading their descriptions. Double sigh. Patience. Isn't. My. Virtue. !!!

I love all my dogs, even the Spaniels (I used to hate them after meeting my sister's, but mine are so sweet) & bed without dog/s = no sleep now. I have 2 (Field) Springer Spaniels (probably x due to stud failing their mother's owner & lost the bitch in heat!), a Wolfhound, a Bedlington Terrier, a strange fluffy Lurcher (Lurchers are rough coat or smooth coat NOT fluffy!) & 2 unsold Beddy X Border Collie X pups who look so cute with the Beddy beards on their tiny faces. OK 1 Spaniel, & the Lurcher are Annon's really, but I'm the 1 at home with them. Our stray (BC X) has been gone 3 weeks now, he just upped & left on a Spaniel hunt & never returned

(moderation is pupets...)

Oh I wish you could meet Pepper, the wonder chicken dog! She's dual registered Aussie - and beautiful. And hilarious. And well - a member of the family. But my - what I'd give for a place that was fenced and she could run to her heart's content. As it is, we're basically in town, even though we're on 1/2 and acre, and we rent - and have no permission to fence, so I feel so bad for her - having to reign in that inborn need to run and herd and play - HARD. Your plan to wait is wise.
But I gotta tell you - every little Aussie pup that I see just wraps itself around my heart and I could easily show up at home with - oh a dozen of 'em! :)

killi, you're the canine queen!! :)

Dina, I love your pictures of Pepper, and yank go my heartstrings :)

dina ~ could you get & use a radio fence? It goes along the ground around the perimeter of the area you want the dog to have access to. The dog wears a receiver collar & is warned aubibly if it gets close to the boundary, the warnings getting louder, then a shock if they disregard the warnings. I want to get this for 3 of mine. Most of the kits come as 1/2 acres (I need 5 as I'm going to let them run in the adjascent forestry.) There is no obvious fence there ~ you've built nothing & the dogs can't jump or dig under it; well they could try... Just an idea

Killi said...

dina, could you use a radfio fence? Invisible barrier for your dog. I want 1 for 3 of mine ~ 3 would wear receiver collars, so would be warned audibly if they tried to cross the barrier. If that fails, then they get a shock. Means my dogs can roam where my other animals can't get to due to usual fencing, as well as those bits where I have stock.
