Corey, Maybe if you offer to pay the gas and a nice lunch the owner will bring Deuce to you, especially if you explain your situation.It may be worth it to the owner as they are sure Deuce is getting a good parent. Or you could advertise in the paper or radio to have someone bring him to you if they are going that way anyway of course you would pay the gas and maybe another $ 20.00 for a tip

Sounds like a good plan!

I'll run that by her, but she might be in a rush when she drops off Deuce so that he can be with me.

I'm trying my best to prove to her that I can get Deuce home with me safely. I want to give him the best love that there is to offer.

I've never been more serious than I am right now.

Haven't heard any more about Duece lately. He has two candidates though - me and a couple who might be interrested.

I hope they turn him down so that I can have him. He needs to be here with me. The owner DID say that she's not in a rush. He's still with her. I offered to pay her gas money for her trip back and buy her lunch if she gives him to me.

Good news everyone!! It's official. I'm getting Duece!

I've desparately worked my magic, and it has paid off. I'm now going to prepare the apt. for his homecoming. He should be here next Wednesday if the weather is good.

I'm so happy! It's almost like adopting a child! Wish me luck, y'all. I'll post a pic of him as my avator.

Oh, Corey, how exciting! I'm so happy for you. I'll bet you're counting the hours. He's going to be a very lucky little doggie.

Thank you both! Judging from his pic, he looks like a fat little butterball.

The owner doesn't want to drive up in bad weather, and wants to bring Deuce to me during warm sunny Wednesday.
