As soon as the prompt, Feel the Love, came this week I knew what photo I was going to post. It is of my husband and our dog, Angie, who is now in dogie heaven.
We got Angie in Arizona as a companion for our puppy Christi. We had just adopted Christi and she was lonesome and destructive. It is my theory that no dog should be alone as they are pack animals but our Shatzy had just died and I wasn't in the right frame of mind to get another right then.
Kirk went to the local Petco on Saturday to get some cat food and the Humane Society was having an Adoption Event. He saw Angie and thought she would be perfect for Christi. He came home and told me I should call and see if she had been adopted. I said, "I don't want another dog!"
On Thursday I went into Prescott to do a side job making sandwiches for a gal that had a lunch truck. I earned $35 cash. On the way home I saw the sign for the Humane Society and turned down the road to just look at the dog.
Angie came to the fence to look at me but when she didn't know me, she turned away. She was looking for her people. I went back to ask for a leash to walk her and she led me to the parking lot to a car and waited to get in. I knew I had to have this dear girl.
When I asked how much it cost to adopt her, the man said $35.
I wish people would realize that owning a dog is a forever commitment. They have feelings and you hurt them deeply when you get rid of them.
I recently joined another challenge, Lori Anderson's 7th Bead Soup Party and was partnered with Kathleen Lang Klik whom I have already introduced. It turns out Kathleen is also in this challenge and I was blown away by the photo she posted.
Yes, that's her husband and her dog, Twila. I don't think Lori Anderson could have made a more perfect match for me. We even think alike.
I wonder how many other's will post their pets in this challenge. I will try and keep count and let you know
