So, the puppy has escaped. He dug out of the back yard yesterday while I was out running errands. The boys are sad, the hubby is sad and I'm kinda sad myself. We did look into getting a new dog, a REAL puppy this time. You know, a little bitty 2 month old that I can carry around like a baby for awhile. Not some 8 month old monster that weighs more than the youngest child.
Hubby is determined it will be a large breed. Ok, I can handle that, but I'm looking into dogs that are low shedding or seasonal shedding. Buster was a constant shedder, which means I have dog hair all over everything in my house. We really like the border collie, which are medium shed. We also like Irish setters which I believe are low shed. The other one that calls to me is a basset hound or a beagle. I know hubby will agree to a basset if I find one, but I'm not so sure about the beagle. They have the cutest faces though!
We have to ask the management company if we can have a dog for real. I'm assuming there will be a pet deposit and all that crap. We didn't have to make a pet deposit on the animals we had when we moved in, since they're caged animals and can't make much mess. As it is, the fullest tank we have is the turtle tank and it's probably got about 7 gallons of water in it.
Ok, I'm babbling again, deal with it, lol

Poor Buster! I hope he found his way home safely. Time to get out and start looking for a new puppy!

I've been looking. We have to get permission from the homeowner before we actually get one that we KNOW we're going to keep. Hubby's supposed to ask on Friday.
