Doggie Saga

I had been on a pretty good “making things” streak, but am sort of stalled because of this little lady:

Isn’t she cute? Well, if you think so and also think “I wish I could have a dog just like that,” you’re in luck! She’s not our dog. Actually, I have no idea whose dog she is, although we’ve been trying our hardest to figure that out. We think she was dumped or ran away a while ago, and her owners either don’t care or have given up looking.

Anyway. She was hanging around the house so we gave her water, and then she was still there in the morning so we gave her more water, and then because she was still there at the end of the day, we fed her and put her on a lead so she couldn’t run into traffic, and now here she is.

She’s very sweet, but kind of a nut. She doesn’t really understand “sit” or “shake” or anything really except for “stay.” She loves treats, though, and learns quickly, so we’re hopeful. Now the task is to get her spayed, up on her shots, and crate trained so that we can find her a good family.

We’re not that family. I had this realization after a rather impressive allergy attack, when I remembered that I’m actually allergic to dogs, and also actually quite happy with the cats.

So if you know of someone who needs a lovely little bully mix, or recognizes this particular little lady (to be known as Ginger Ladycakes until somebody else gives her another name), please let me know. I want her to have a happy home, but I am smart enough to realize that my home is not that home.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.

    Do you want to borrow our crate? I don’t think we can take in a dog right now (although Argus really would like a dog friend, she’s pretty lonely since Lucky disappeared).

    What a beauty! I wish I could take her, but we won’t bring any more dogs around my old Bouncer. He doesn’t need that stress at 14 y.o. 😦

    I’ve met some bully-type dogs recently that I really like though. I bet she’s a Very Good Dog.

      She is a Very Good Dog! We felt really bad – we’ve been keeping her in the basement until we can acquire a crate, and she is the saddest thing, because she’s afraid of the stairs. If you hear of somebody else who is looking, please do connect us! I really want to find her a best friend.
