For the past few weeks I have been thinking about a traveling companion. Several readers recommended a dog as the perfect traveling companion. I don't make decisions easily; especially ones that require a long term commitment. I decided it may be time to take the plunge so I started looking at pet adoption sites and also checking out craigslist.org in search of the right dog for me.
Sunday I came across the following ad: http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/pet/2343494672.html
I made a decision, that even though Charger was a little larger dog than I thought appropriate for Dod's small size, I could not let this beautiful dog be put down! It felt good to have finally made the decision. I called the animal shelter and learned that Charger had been adopted just a few hours before I called. Good for him!
There are hundreds of other dogs facing the same fate Charger was so I will continue my search and even plan on visiting the local shelter. I am hesitant about the shelter visit because I am such a softy. The first dog to lick my hand will probably be starting a life long relationship.
