Woof, Woof!

I want a second dog. My husband is being stubborn and won't give in to me this time. Of course, Noodles is my one and only true dog love at the moment.

True Love
But through my friend, Amber, whose aunt does dog rescue and through Amber's friend, Shannon, who fosters dogs, I have become aware of a Shih Tzu who is in need of a good home. I would love to take him in. His name is Pooh. But I would probably change his name to Mr. Jones (like from the Counting Crows song). But Eric is not budging.

That's Pooh in the back of the photo. The two dogs were on their way to an adoption event to find their fur-ever homes.

To satisfy my Shih Tzu fix, I get to babysit (dog-sit) Roxie whenever her owners go on vacation. She is sort of like my part-time dog and also a Shih Tzu. You have probably seen her around my blog or on Facebook.

Little Roxie Fox!

I love Shih Tzus as we had one when I was in high school. His name was Dewey and he was wonderful!

Lately, I have also become enchanted with Cairn Terriers. There were a couple of them at Noodles' doggie daycare who were adorable. They are just like Toto! I would also like a Cairn Terrier.

A Cairn terrier - so cute! Just like Toto.
Anyhow, right now Eric says no but I take no as just a jumping off point, a place to negotiate. I never take no for an answer. I seldom give up! How do you think I got Noodles?
What do you think? Do you have to run things past your signficant other? Of course, a second dog can be a big change to a household and is a commitment for the lifetime of a pet. I am a big believer that if you adopt a pet, then you just made a commitment. Pets are not disposable. So, of course, all people concerned have to agree on the addition of a new four-legged member to the household.
I am just wondering, what sort of things do you have to run past others in your house and do you have any tips for swaying my husband? Ha ha! Leave any tips in the comments section.

And you can read more from me here and here. It's where I also blog (on occasion - bad blogger!)

OOH! I have been writing about the adoption of our 2nd puppy, Jaffery! :)

This is an ongoing discussion at our house. I sorta sprung our Noodles on the rest . . . they knew I was looking and suddenly a puppy was coming home! Probably not the best scenario. Once Noodles was here, she won over all the chilly hearts.
Love Noodles's Mommy #2

I really, really, really want you to have Pooh! I really think he's a perfect dog for you and Eric and that Eric would really like him. He just needs to MEET POOH!

I have to say, just keep pluggin' away at it. I've been considering getting a playmate for Wiggy but the problem is that the apartment will only allow two pets. When I get a house, I think it will be a whole other ballgame entirely with two pugs and a cat *LOL*
