IMG_iP0993eWhat a strange coincidence we witnessed this weekend when, for the second time in three days, a stray dog showed up and lingered all day. Again, this one had a collar with license and veterinary information, but it being Sunday, there was no way to get a number to contact the owner.

This guy was friendly, and when it became obvious that he was happy to hang around, I let Delilah out to meet him. In minutes, they successfully navigated an introduction and seemed comfortable with each other’s presence.

IMG_iP0996eWhat are the odds that we would have two stray dogs visiting us in such close succession? As Cyndie and I watched Delilah and her new pal playfully running together, it occurred to both of us that maybe we should be thinking about getting a 2nd dog.

The interesting thing about that idea is, Friday we decided to go to the feline rescue organization during the weekend to see if we could get a young kitty as a companion for Pequenita. As soon as we made that decision, a series of situations played out that repeatedly disrupted that plan, culminating in a surprising change of thinking from the possibility of another cat, to considerations of another dog.

We aren’t sure what we will do next, but I believe it will involve queries into what kind of dogs there are at nearby shelters that might be awaiting a new home and canine companion.

Sorry, Pequenita, your new pal will have to wait.

  2. Hi my friends! When I just started reading I thought, maybe a message to get a second dog. And then I found it in your words. I believe is your good energy hat attract them. My vet says cats like loneliness, they prefer not to have companions from their same specie. And dogs love pals! All our love to you!

    • You guys are good examples for us of having multiple dogs that get along. I never really planned for this, but I think it may be in our future.Thank you!
