What am I doing?

Look at this face. We're going to meet her in the next few days. She's about 6 years old, 55lb. lab mix, spent all of her life until this summer in a parking lot. She's being fostered by someone who can't keep her any longer...

So Matthew and I are taking Duke to go meet her soon. If it works out between her and Duke we'll at least foster her for awhile. As I type this I am fully aware that if she and Duke get along and she moves in here for a planned short period of time we will never let her go. I think we are getting in a little over our heads... and yet I can't stop it. What am I thinking? 140 lbs of dog and a baby! How will I handle that? Ah well, when it rains it pours. This pooch needs a home and if we can give it to her that's what we'll have to do.

Caroline - I know! She is the best worst influence!! ;-) While there is a teensy part of me that is hoping she and Duke don't get along, the overwhelming majority of me hopes they're BFFs and we get to bring her home.

OMG, OMG, OMG!!!!! You really are getting as bad as I!!!! Of course, you'll keep her!! LOL!! Let's do the math .... 2 large dogs, 2 adult humans and 1 teeny baby in a NYC apartment. Nah, you're not on the totally crazy list yet, but getting close!

She is cute!! Does she have a name? I'll bet Duke will love having a buddy around. Labs make wonderful pets, so let's hope her Lab-side is strong.

I love it! I love being a bad influence!!

One more thing...I think it will be good for Duke to have a buddy since he probably won't be getting as much attention once the little one arrives.

I'm such a sucker for dogs. If hubby didn't have those three cats...I'd probably have a pack-o-dogs runnin' the place! heheh.

I bet Duke will love her. He'll think he's gettin' an arranged marriage...LOL

A parking lot? Gah well of course she had you at hello with that story, how could you not???

Just start with fostering - you don't have to keep her unless it feels right. You're doing her a big BIG favor giving her a good foster home too. I'm saying all this but I know damn well you're gonna keep her.
