Why? Why Can't I Have Them ALL???

This lady that worked for my groomer that I was somewhat friends with died a few weeks ago very suddenly. She was big into animal rescue and I was asked to take her birds in (she had six of them :eek:) because she knew that I used to raise birds years ago. So, today I went to move the birds an in addition to finding homes for her birds her husband is also finding homes for her 7 dogs. Yea, can you see where this is going???

I want them! I want them ALL!!!! They are so sweet, and they are all small. I mean really, why should this be an issue for my husband. Seriously, I would only have like 9 :eek: dogs and I just don't see the problem here, lol!!

But really, they are wonderful little dogs. She has 2 miniture poodles, a welch corgi, a min pin, a terrier mix, a cocker spaniel and a teeny tiny teacup poodle (that I think I may be in love with). I am just so sad for them. Can you even imagine how stressed they must be? There mom died and now they are having to leave their home and they won't be together anymore. So, I was thinking if I got them all that would make it better, :rolleyes: right? Except the fact that I would be homeless because my husband would make me move out with ALL my dogs, cats and birds and I just can't see me being able to live in a box with all my pets. They just don't make boxes big enough! :)

Aww, poor babies... I know what you mean. My husband worked with a man (now retired) who takes in rescues who were otherwise about to be euthanized. Get this, he and his wife now have FORTY-FOUR DOGS. :eek: When my hubby told me this, I frowned and said, "That is animal abuse... there's no way they can give that many dogs the love and one-on-one attention they need."

He said that's what he had thought at first, but the man and his wife actually make a point to give each and every dog a ton of love and attention. They're retired and spend all their time caring for and giving love to all these pups. They have two king-sized beds next to each other in their master bedroom where a lot of the pups sleep with them, and another king-sized bed in another room... they have a huge fenced property where they can romp and play with each other, but spend a lot of time indoors too... it sounds crazy but I guess it can work! :D

That said, although my dh and I joke about having five Poodles someday, that's a LOT of time and work! Hopefully all of these seven pups will find wonderful loving homes!

OMW, my husband had my daughter in here video taping her with her right hand raised (as if she was in court) stating her name and that she promises to clean up after the new puppy everytime she is asked. He told her he was taping it so in case he had to take her to court later when she doesn't clean up after her. Oh, our daughter is 8! We have to go through this kind of stuff everytime we want any kind of new animal. The puppy we are getting in the morning is going to be the kids dog so they are the ones having to do the begging and make their binding contract on video tape. My husband is too funny!:D Maybe I will post mt daughters video on here so everyone will get a good laugh!!
ROFL - that is hiLARious!! Please do post it if you have a chance! I'm married to a nut too, so I can relate! ;)
