So now dog number 2 is on the horizon. Also a rescue dog, also a spritely senior, but one that's had a bad life and needs a gentle loving home. I'm totally across that.
The problem was that dog number 2 is at a shelter and they have a list of dogs that need housing and now dog number 3 has turned up on their website and I'm trying to talk myself out of getting a THIRD senior dog that needs a loving home in which to spend their remaining years and he's not so spritely but completely beautiful and I DO NOT NEED THREE DOGS.
I'm going to hold out. Seriously. Three dogs is crazy dog lady territory, I know it.
Also, I'm learning to fly. And work has been insane this year. But I'm learning to fly.
