We have been feeding this stray dog hubby likes for about 2 months now. It started out at being out a away from the coop, in a large hay barn, and has progressed to feeding it along side the coop. A blue heeeler looking like dog, possible a Austrailian Cattle dog as its taller. Docked tail, young I think, male. We cannot get close to it, but, we have been feeding it all the time. (Now I started) I named him Sampson, as I do not know what hubbys intentions are with the dog once we can gain its trust. However, that is NOT the topic of my discussion. tonight, I am packing for a bird show Saturday I leave for tomorrow (escuse any typos, I have had alcohol LOL) and I am loading a bunch of stuff into the car for the raffle. I hear the dogs (our two dogs) barkeing ans see Aampson around the coop. However, behind me I see something slinking off, I thought was a scrawny orange cat. Turns out its a little terrier mix dog. It looks really skinny, so I fed it some cat food. Came right up to me and ate, though I was cautious. When hubby came home he petted it right away. After that we talked about trying to find the owner or if the neighbor wanted him. We THINK its a young dog, its teeth are really white still, and it is a male, but still squats to pee. However, it has a terible underbite, and a curly tail, so we think it might be part pug? Anyway, after hubby got home, the dog has been like my shadow ever since. I realise, we have a small house with two dogs in it already, and two cats....but hubby has no idea I think how badly i want this dog. It will curl up in my lap like it has always lived here. I n thruth, to get rid of it (unless it belonged to a family already) It will kill me to part with him. I am already bonded to it I think. It is almost everything we have wanted when our outehr dogs are gone, small dog, gentle, friendly and a mutt. The bad things are our otehr two dogs are pansies, and I fear they will not get a long. Tonight, when I let our dogs into the house, the large one just wanted it, but the corgi, whom I was the most afraid for, seemed excited to have the little dog and the dog, does not seem t chase cats. The problem is convincing hubby I love this little dog. I am hoping that if I can show him the other two do not care, maybe I can convice him to let the dog stay, but live outside unless it WANTS to come in. It is sleeping in my wagon right now on top of the gas grill cover, looking at me through the window. I saw it poop, and did not see any worms or anything, but it was very hungry. OMG, it has a terrible underbite uit is so ugly it CUTE! I am dvestated . we agreed to get a small dog at some point afte rthe other two were gone (partly due to the outher dogs being female and both pansies), but I almost think this is fate. Plus its a male, which I did not ever want. I just really need to rant, I am upset.
