Has it been a week already? However many days it has been, its been enough for our newest addition, Bailey to get totally settled in. She did great adjusting to her new schedule. And, even though she was a little nervous at the vet, Bailey charmed everyone there.
I got a phone call from a "perspective adopter" interested in meeting Max. Despite that I didn't get a good vibe from perspective adopter
, I overlooked it because on paper, perspective adopter
seemed perfect. So, we arranged a time to meet.
We got to the park on time and we waited.............And we waited...
When we finally met, Max, who likes everyone, wanted nothing to do with perspective adopter
. I let them go for a walk together alone, but Max only wanted to come back to me. From a distance I watched the two together, and I just didn't feel like they were connecting. The rest of our nearly 2 hour visit fell flat. When we parted, I told her we'd talk in a couple of days. But I decided to not wait and I let her know that evening that I felt that she and Max were not a match. I never heard back from prospective adopter,
so I'm not sure if she agreed or not. If she did or didn't, it was my choice to make.
So, onward through the week we've gone. This little intruder found its way into our garage. I was so sure it was poisonous and its sole mission was to kill me and the dogs. I was insisting that Carl "make it dead" but he refused and scooped it up and tossed it into the neighboring field. It turned out to be a (non-poisonous) baby rat-snake, so I guess that was okay.
It was also okay that the rest of the week was quiet and uneventful.
That just doesn't seem possible with Todd around.
