Piggie in the middle lately.
Elderly neighbours lost their doted-on dog few weeks back. both are desperately sad, lonely and lost. I have been spending( too much) time looking for another dog for them. They are lovely, lovely people with loads of love and time to give to a dog. She is relatively fit ...almost 80; he is mid 70's...and be has some mobility problems.
Up to now I have been looking for a dog 5 years or thereabouts.....small, lap size,,cuddle size really. It is a slow process....i have been to visit a few kennels but none suitable.
they...the neighbours...ring me daily. This morning she saw an ad for a puppy. She is desperate for it. He is worried they cannot manage. Whilst she was out I went to see him and we talked at length. She says they are not too old. He is worried about what might be.
I will take them to see this puppy if they decide they want it
so folks........too old? Live for today? (That dream small dog on their laps could be this puppy cuddling with them tonight or tomorrow I feel they will be swayed by what I say
not a major problem as most are on this thread but thoughts appreciated
