So.... DH adopted him today while I was at work, but we met him this weekend at the Adoption Center in our local pet store while reviewing their bulletin board to make sure our flyer was still visible and checking out for any found dog flyers.
His name is Columbus and he's a sweetheart. Other than that not sure how else to describe him, gotta get some pictures I guess.
We had to sit and think on it over the weekend to make sure this was a good decision and not just acting on trying to stuff an emotional hole with another dog, but truly I believe we can be a good 2 dog home and we still want Roscoe back ASAP obviously, but decided we have room to love and care for two dogs when Roscoe comes back and wanted to go ahead and start taking care of this sweetie, too.
I'm really hoping that there is the added benefit of having a sweet doggie to love and keep us occupied while waiting for Roscoe to come home, but he's no replacement. Very different personality. Anyway. He's just ANOTHER dog, not "the new dog". You know?
One part of me is still SUPER depressed, but I still have hope, and I'm keeping it together.
