"Mom, can we go to Petsmart to just look at the dogs"
"Sure, because I'm soooooooooo NOT ready to get another dog. We are just looking so I don't want any tears!"
"I know, I know. Just looking"
And I was serious. Totally serious. We had to find another home for our almost 2 year old dog in May and as a first-time dog owner, it was terrible experience. So, I was definitely not ready to take on the challenge again.
Then while looking at these yippy dogs in the kennel that were up for adoption, I went to pet one and Zoey decided she was going to roll over on her back and look up at me with those sweet eyes. The girls saw my sliver of interest and pounced. And then dad was cornered ("you said when mom was ready we could get a dog"). And so after a couple of hours of no's and tears, and maybe's and are you sure's, Zoey came home with us.
And she is so so sweet. How anyone could have dropped her off at a kill shelter I'll never know. Welcome to the family sweet girl!
