    Two things
    The more people I meet the more I love my dogs (& cats)

    A house without a pet is not a home

    Jasmine in a typical pose. She HAS to be the centre of attention. I've been in my sick bed for the last few days - which she has spent by my side. She goes out for a 30 second pee and rushes back in like she hasn't seen me for a month - at a fast lick with a tail like a propeller:) And I get a face wash.

    I love both of my dogs but she is special. Found her in a pet store as a rescue. Had no intention of taking a dog home - just some cat food. But she trotted down the aisle to me, I picked her up and got a lick and I was sold then and there. Sometimes they just find you.

    A wife is great but it's not a home without a dog/cat (we have both).

    That's exactly the reason I don't go into any rescue shelters... I know that I would melt if a dog looked at me like that and I wouldn't be able to resist. Someday, though!

    We lost our Bonnie just a couple weeks ago, but my wife is already talking about picking up a rescue puppy, and naming her Layla.
    I guess there's a great big hole in her heart that needs filling.

    And so the cycle of life and love repeats.

    You went to a Humane Shelter?

    No need for that in my neighborhood where they wander into our yard all the time without collars/ID, I consider it an audition!!....no keepers yet as one Lab is enough already.

    Lenny was an owner surrender at my local dog pound. He had already been there 9 days was scheduled to be euthanized the next day. We adopted him. He's quite smart, happy and spoiled.

    I know this from the customer side. We had a very nice guy come to read the meter, for years. Our dog Bella threw the love on this poor guy so hard. At first he was sort of embarrassed by the attention. Then it was obvious how much he looked forward to stopping at our house. Dogs are absolutely the coolest!

    Dogs are one of my true passions, along with music. I adopted both of mine and have fostered a few others. All of it is the most rewarding thing I've ever done.

    It's emotionally tough sometimes to volunteer at the shelter. Knowing that you'll most likely leave without a dog is hard...at least for me it is. I guess I take comfort in the fact I am donating instead of volunteering. I hope that is enough.

    Aw man. How could you leave that dog in the OP picture?

    I understand though, my girlfriend got another big dog after I'd had Flash about a year and it did throw a wrench into things. I like Bear, but where Flash is following the Lab maturity timeline and getting more manageable...this other dog is not.

    I can certainly see where you wouldn't want to upset the household with another dog, or where you would wait for the right time.

    Indeed it does. I remember reading about it, and my heart breaking with yours and your wife's.

    You and your wife will know when it's time. You and the right rescue dog will know when you meet. It can't be avoided; and that's a good thing for everyone involved.

    Yeah, but If you could read the thought bubble over the dogs head , you would see steaks and Ribs and Roast chicken.

    It is actually a look that says, "Get me the F*** out of here! Please!"

    Here's some love from Flash to all of you.

    I think he was also saying, "How long do you really expect me to keep still??"
