Hello! As many of you know, I am adopted. I wasn't adopt as a puppy from a breeder, I was adopted through a rescue group. My human mom says I am extra special because they looked long and hard to find me - I was the special angel dog that came along to help Mom feel better after Emily passed away.
I also have to say that as an adopted "rescue" dog I have a pretty great life. Good food, lots of toys, several dog beds, I go on trips and I have a loving family. Let me assure all my furry and human friends - being an "only dog" is GREAT!
What has been on my mind lately is MOM has been looking at other dogs. No, not just reading our doggie friends blogs with me - but actually looking at other dogs on the Labs4Rescue website!! I am worried - does this mean another furry four footed beast will be taking up residence?? Will I have to share my lap of luxury life and home?? Will this new dog eat all my food and nibble all my treats and steal all my toys??
This is all very perplexing. Mom tells me she would like to rescue a "senior" dog that needs a good home. Now I love my "senior" doggie cousins, but that doesn't mean they can move in! I'm going to have to work closely with Mom on this. I like volunteering to help rescue other Labs but I didn't realize it might mean sharing my space with one.
My Mom says this is all in the "thinking" stage, she says she misses the days when she was a two dog house, that of course was in the DBD (Days Before Dory). Back in the day, Mom first had Lucy and Fox, then when Fox passed away she got Emily - I guess now that Lucy and Emily are part of the Daisie Chain her mind has been pondering a second dog.
My Mom says "don't worry" and Dad says "it may be awhile before we actually get another dog" - but in the mean time I am going to start hiding my toys! I am also going to work on a list of both my concerns and the positive things about possibly adopting another dog. Our friends Maggie and Mitch are a great example of a two dog house and Joey and Tanner certainly demonstrate that two can be twice the fun of one. Oh and I suppose Peanut does have Flash and Jasper seems to like Jack.
I'm going to have to give this some thought!
