Rejected

I applied for a wire haired terrier. The person who is charge asked all kinds of questions and after sending the application this morning, wondered if I had any other pets other than only ONE dog? She was really very critical and asked if I knew the dogs bolted toward the door to run out. I told her I should look to get a puppy instead of rescue dog that way I would be able to train a puppy. she seemed insulted that I wondered why she asked so many questions after filling out application with as much honesty as I could. I told her to forget about it that I would adopt from the puppy mill as her dogs that were rescued had no history if they came from mill or not. She claims if I wanted to promote or encourage puppy mills than to go ahead and do so. Here a person thinks you are rescuing a dog when the person in charge tries to put stop to it. I told her to just forget it. I don't know why she questions my hope to rescue one of her dogs. No wonder they are up for adoption! When you do you best and that isn't good enough, what are you to do?

I can understand places wanting to make sure pets are going to good homes, but some of them seem to go a little overboard. Some of the forms I saw when we were looking for a dog were so involved that I think by the time you finished filling them out you would qualify for top security clearance at the White House! And there always undeserving people who know how to get around the rules. Of course that doesn't mean you should get rid of the rules, but sometimes I think they are a little too rigid.

Appreciate

Thanks Barbara L, you must know how I feel. They say that the sun will come up in the morning,so I hope it is bright because I feel so lost tonight. (Good time to have a James around! Someone who would try to understand) My little one just seems to be having the same feeling due to age. Both of us know what it means to be disappointed. He even makes the situation worse cause he always is like reflection of me. I wish he wouldn't be so caring. He is actually shivering. As they always say, these things have reason why they are happening. So just to let you know how I do so appreciate your thoughts. Hope one day I will say the right thing for you too. You're a good friend BL. I am thankful for you.. I wish you and James a bright day too.

That's so nice of you to say. I'll say a little prayer for you that you have a great night and that tomorrow really will be sunny for you in more ways than one.

I don't believe in breed discrimination because a small dog is "cuter"...

Lol pacanis! Never thought of it in that way (breed discrimination) but you're right!

You and me both, foodstorm.
Sue Zee Q - how sad for your husband...and your time!
Our next door neighbor purposely walks her dog to our yard every single day, and if she sees me walk out or drive up to the house, she scurries back in the house, sometimes even forgetting the dog. Drives me nuts. And she wonders why I won't take down the hedge between our homes.

Ive done the rescue dog thing once.I had to answer many questions fill out forms tell them where I live, my vets number etc,etc. It was for a redbone coonhound.When I told the lady I lived on a six hundred thousand acre ranch she didn't believe me. It's not my ranch but Ted Turners and thats where we live and work. Anyway she called the vet and he confirmed that it was true.We got the dog he was flown from Syracuse,NY to Colorado Springs dh picked him up.All we paid for was the plane ticket and to send crate back.Plus I sent a girl $20.00 to cover her gas to drive him from one town to the next to the airport.He came already neutered,tatooed,shots and health certificate his name was Clifford we had him about six years before he died. All I can say is he had a wonderful life while we had him. People are always saying they want to come back as one of our dogs because they have a great life. Not to say dont get yelled at just about everyday.

What annoys me is when we walk our dogs on the beach on their leashes (as you're supposed to by law) and other people just let their dogs run free which means you spend a lot of your time fending off other dogs.

No one loves their doggies more than I do, but I realize that my dogs prefer to be at home. They aren't a fashion accessory. Keiki prefers to be at home, and she whines and cries when we leave her. But she can live with it. It is more safe for her to stay at home (she's a Jack Russell). Yes, occaisionally I have to pick up after her if we've been out for more than a couple of hours. She is ancient. Those of you who read this a lot know that she ran away from home one time (8 days). But I love her, and I do NOT believe that, even small as she is, she doesn't belong as a fashion statement. My one bit of advice to dog owners is to crate train them. Keiki is almost never in her crate these days, but when I pull it out, she crawls in and feels happy.
