Red face DH is gonna kill me....

I've fallen in love with a little guy on Petfinder and am talking with the rescue about setting up a meet with Todd to see if he's a good match for us...OMG!!!!! What am I thinking! Lol...
Once you see his face you'll totally understand..
Meet Cruzer!

Uh oh! But, what a smiling little face, and after such a hard life thus far, it sounds like. I hope he's a good match for you, and that your husband doesn't divorce you!

OMG! I get it. Do they know for sure he has schnauzer in him? I'm not so sure about Schnauzers....they can be pretty high strung. He really looks a lot like a Hav in his face, but then a lot of dogs look like Havs to me lately, I think I see them everywhere.

He will get snapped up if you don't take him, I'm sure. Would you still be able to foster if you take on another dog permanently? He is beautiful, though, and I can picture him in a nice fluffy coat.

Me too..lol
I haven't broken the news to him yet..I'm still waiting to hear back from the shelter before I take that step.
Todd's birthday is next Tuesday...wouldn't a big brother be the best gift ever!

That's why I wanted to talk with the shelter before we make the trip to meet him and then at the meet and greet (if we have one) I'll be able to assess his personality myself. My cousin has two mini schnauzers and they are great dogs but she's put alot of training into them.

I'd probably give up fostering for the near future.
DH has said many a time that he'd rather have another permanent dog than see all the the fosters come and go...so it may be a relief to him.
I'd miss fostering but I can still do volunteer work for the shelter and the rescues that I'm involved in.

What a great person you are Eva, making this sacrifice for your DH . I think he should be very grateful that you had only his emotional well being at heart.

(Cruzer is a doll, I'd risk it with DH....one look and he'll think it was a great idea!)
