We have had dogs since 1966 but since my last two dogs died about 6 years back I have resisted getting another dog because I felt I really can't take care of them anymore by myself.
I have 10 cats but cats are easy to care for.
I miss my dogs and even though I was very tempted I have turned down a number of dogs and puppies I would have liked to have.
Last Saturday, while a couple lady friends were shooting at my place, one of the ladies showed me a picture of the last two puppies she had.
Immediately I said I really like that dog............but I just can't take care of him, especially with an impending shoulder operation next week.
Well, for two days I argued with myself but in the end I brought the little guy home.
Son of a gun, I forgot how much trouble a puppy can get into and how they have to pee every hour.
But he took to me right away and I really like the little bundle of energy.
Can't say the same for the cats though.
Right now he's under the desk chewing on the computer cables.
Oh me, what did I get myself into?
