lol.. okay some clarrifications... yes, Oakley is a dog, but I think bfoster knew that, and yes, he is altered. (at 4 months!
Oakley is also a male dog, so it would end up being a male/male mix if I were to get Raymond. As for if he's neutered or not, I am assuming he is, as he has been with the rescue for a while, and he has posted recent news about another dog that joined the rescue only recently already being scheduled to be altered. So, I'm betting he is, and irregardless, would be if I got him.
Some good news today, my gf called me only hours after posting that she was a homebody to say she got a new job, with a hefty, 26% raise over the position that she was 'downsized' from. I feel he weight already lifting off my shoulders and she doesnt start until the 20th.
The only bad news about that is, we really haven't adjusted Oakley to her not being at home over the past 2 months, she's almost always been around, and only crated from time to time... so we need to start working on that again. If I wasn't torn about getting poor Raymond before, I definetely am now. I don't think we have the time as I've also been informed from my work that I'm gonna be doing lots of travel, ranging from an upcoming short, 2 day trip to Dallas to a long 3 week one at an unknown time in Denver. I know in my heart that just isn't fair to a couple new dogs that are still adjusting, let alone the puppy we already got, he's gonna be so depressed, it's bad enough when I go to work for 8 hours, whines for the 1st hour, then mopes for the next 2, refusing to play. Odd thing is, he doesn't do this with my gf leaving with me staying behind, maybe mopes for 30 min, but will still play.
Sorry everyone, I went and did it again, started a thread, got everyones two cents and life came and thew me a curveball, albeit one we wanted. Also, sorry for jacking my own thread, lol... not sure anyone cares about my news, but I've started to get to know some of you through your posts and just thought I'd share. All I can think is poor Raymond, at least he's being treated VERY well in the rescue he's at... 3-4 trips a week to the dog park and many hikes, the guy that runs it is a great person.
