New year, New dog...

January 2nd, 2007 at 10:31 am

First of all: Happy New Year everyone!!! I wish you all the best for 2007.

Ok, now back to the new dog part. Well, that was DH most wanted present and he finally got it. It is crazy how much most shelters want for dogs. We could not find any place that required less than $350 for a mix race, nothing-special dog. I told him that at this price we could get a pure breed, but finally, on Sunday, as I was looking (one more time) at shelters around Eastern Mass, I found the Baypath Humane Society of Hopkinton. It was still a good chunk of money, but not as much as I was getting myself ready to spend, and we are already ssoooo in love with our little Beaux. His original name was Gomer. Not a big fan! He's a 6-month old black lab-terrier mix and the most adorable thing.
Hubby's happy, I'm happy... The cats? well, not so thrilled, but they're getting used to him.

    I though all shelters wanted was the dog to be "fixed" and you pay up front for that.

    Ima - oh no! well, yes and no. The shelter will spray or neuter the dog if he/she is not already. The line we got most of the time is "the fee we charge barely covers the cost of care to get the dog up to date on its shots"... which is almost a lie. All these shelters have agreements with local vets and get special discount for that kind of things.
