So far our trip has been excellent and uneventful as far as bad things are concerned. I don't mention it often but one of the purposes of our trip is to rescue a new dog. Last year we had the horrible experiences to have both of our dogs die and we miss them so much. We needed some time being dogless just to be sure that was what we both wanted. It is not a good idea for one partner to want a dog and the other not so much. But it turns out we both hunger for another dog. On our whole trip we both seem to be on the lookout for a new dog. So at this hotel we are staying at a little yellow dog approached us and we did a lot of thinking. The next day a white dog not only approched us but followed us around. So what to do? Our final idea was to take both dogs. The white dog followed us to the vet and we left with assurances that she would be cleaned up and be okay to touch. One never knows what horrible things you can catch. It has been known to happen that people catch mange from dogs. So we went back with full intentions to take the yellow dog to the vet too. But we can't catch it and we need to move on today. So as the caprices of life happen the dog we fully intended to take first will be left here probably to die while the dog I suspect is its mother will remain with us all the days of its life. She is so shy, quiet, and well behaved it is amazing. I am sad about the other dog whom I had named Lilly but this one is Chica and is going to fill a large part of the hole in my heart.
