How can you say, "No" to this poor puppy? You wife wasn't nagging, she was appealing to your better nature!

A full male Pit about 1 year old but he has been abused and will never be able to have full use of his hind legs due to the surgery to correct the abuse. He is the most lovable big headed dog with a powerful broad chest in the world. Name is Lamont. [/quote]

Liz,

I hope so cause Buddy is one handsome dog. Everytime I walk him people always tell me how beautiful he is.

Margaret,

See that's her plan of attack. First she finds something and then I vehemently object and the she says "OK but we have to keep it just until I find a SUITABLE owner" all the while just buying time knowing I'll sooner or later get attached. I have pressed very hard on Lamont and the other day she told me that she had found Lamont a new owner BUT he couldn't take him until next Thursday. Yeah right, she just wants one more week to work on my butt!! This ain't over yet. Lord help me when I finally retire and have no more excuses re not having any time to care for something.

Dear David,
Gee, I wish I could find it in my heart of hearts to feel sorry for you- but it ain't gonna happen [that's an old Southern expression, Honey] My 3 house dogs were all discards and I love them dearly.
Congrats on being the top poster!! Shows how much you really care.

Or it reflects how many cases of Carnation's drink he has made a commission on..... (just kidding, not trying to start anything... you have to be so fracking careful on the boards these days)

I agree with Liz on this one. LOL When do you find time to be a CPA David? LOL. Must have a good staff in that office. And yes, keep the dog. He sounds like a winner.

Amy, Margaret, Marlene, EZ and others re Lamont,

Getting real close to Thursday and she's now made her last move. Last night as both Buddy and Lamont lay on our bed with 3 cats BTW, she teared up and told me that the new owner only lives in a 1 bedroom; has a rocky relationship with his GF; has another big dog already; is a recovering alcoholic and was seen drinking a beer in the restaurant yesterday. So what kind of life will that be for Lamont!!! Then the floodgates opened.

I haven't told her yet but I know I can't win this. Man I just don't have time for 2 big dogs and I know that as soon as she gets to keep Lamont, he's mine and she will be off rescuing.

Brian,

I wish I had been able to get something going with the Carnation people. Lord knows I have tried and tried and tried to get someone with some decision making authority to return my calls. It just seems so natural that a symbiotic relationship could and should exist between OFC and Nestle.

Cookey and EZ,

Like a good CPA I manage my time properly to do the things that I consider important each day and making sure that others that get caught in these headlights learn what to do and what not to do is on the top of my list.

It's funny sometimes as my wife will drag a customer over from her restaurant and bring them into my office, clients or not, and introduce them as "David, this is xxxxx, he has cancer." She somehow thinks that I can help anyone with any kind of cancer. Maybe I'll start giving them Brian's number.

David,

Is it really that much more trouble to walk two dogs at once or open two cans of dog food instead of one? This new home doesn't sound like a good match for a dog with permanent health problems. Maybe you could keep Lamont until you or your wife find a better home for him. Two dogs vs one doesn't necessarily double the work and tax season is almost done. Just a thought.

Take care,
Eileen
