How I got my Dogs

I didn't want to hijack Katies thread.. so Ill put this story here.

I posted this to Ann..

Ann... I am going to share a secret with you. This is how you do it.. You "babysit a puppy for someone.. like a breeder? Because that puppy is being bullied. So you are doing a favor for a week ( which might turn into two). When he sees that puppy playing with Roxie... and then falls in love with it.. BAM it becomes HIS idea.

Ok maybe that only works in my house? HAHA

Missy asked if thats how I got Goldie

No.. Goldie was my first. I basically said I am getting a dog.. would you like to keep living with me and the dog? LOL

Then came Maverick.. who we BABYSAT and he belonged to the breeder. Thats when we saw how Goldie played with him and they had so much fun running around the house. BUT JOAN WOULD NOT LET ME HAVE HIM!!!! SHE IS EVIL!!! EVIL!!!! I BEGGED! She thought he was going to show and be her little Stud. So she took him back. Fast forward to Stogies litter being born.. and what was right in the middle of all these black and white puppies.. a Gold Brindle JUST LIKE MAVERICK! I knew I MUST HAVE THIS MAVERICK LOOK A LIKE. So I waited.. because I was second on the list. And waited.. to see if he was going to turn out ( Stogie) and waited.. and Sure enough.. JoAnn.. first on the list wanted a black and white. so I got Stogie!!! YAY!

THEN Joan asks if I wanted Maverick because her tiny precious Mav wasnt SO TINY AFTERALL! I could not, because adding two dogs at the same time woud have been too much so he went to a new home.

SO I got Goldie because I just knew I wanted a Hav. Anything but a white girl I say. They are born and she says we have two white girls.. do you want one. OHMYGOSH YES I AM SO EXCITED IM GETTING A WHITE GIRL! HAHA.. Im lucky too.. Goldie is an original.

Fell in love with Mav so I got Stogie.

Then we babysat Rumba..because he was being bullied. ( There is a thread here.. you can search Rumba. ) and again wanted to keep him. And the mister did too once he saw how cute and happy he was. But if I was going to add a third dog.. I really wanted one I could show since the bug had bitten and now Rumba has a great home.

I NO LONGER BABYSIT FOR JOAN! HAHA

I love happy endings Melissa. Ummm, if Joan needs a new babysitter since you are no longer available...

yup, I told the breeder when I got Jasper, could be anything but an all white dog....

Melissa, look on the bright side, if you had not become the crazy dog lady, we would not all be able to be a "collective group" of CRAZY DOG PEOPLE!!

I thought I'd never find people as canine crazy as me. The Forum saved me from an involuntary commitment to the nut house from my slightly worried family.

Oh and I completely forgot to add that your photography Melissa is stunning. Now let me show you how dense I am...is this also a new puppy announcement? Oh now I get it, it's the puppy that got away story too.
