Well, today my husband checked off another item on his wish list: a puppy. Actually, a dog.
We went to an animal shelter/rescue shelter, and we both liked a house broken beagel/basset hound mix. She's between 2-3 years old, they think. So far, things are going smoothly and uneventful. She's very quiet and makes no fuss.
My husband took a picture and sent an e-mail with it to lots of people. We got a call in about 3 minutes from our daughter. She'd wanted a dog for years when she lived with us but we weren't home during the day for so long that it wouldn't have been kind to the dog. Now that we're retired, we have time. Our daughter lives and works elsewhere, so she's jealous. Of course, now she's working hours that leaves her no time for a dog. She gets her pet fix through her roommate's dog and boyfriend's family's cats.
