    I so wish I could have her!! But my mom said never again will she have three dogs in the house because it's too chaotic.:( None of my friends are allowed to have, even if they were they would not be a person for a Border Collie.:( I'm going to show her to my mom anyway, there's always hope!*crossing fingers*

    I've tried talking everyone I know into letting me get this dog or adopting it themselves. I'm in love.

    But I also love this one

    I have a soft spot for Poms, my last dog was one, and they are just so amazingly loyal and wonderful dogs.

    I want to foster this girl. She has similar heart problems as my pom and she stole my heart. She needs a life long foster home. I need a convincing argument to convince my roommate and my mom! Help me you guys.

    Keeping my fingers crossed for you Southerngirl! I've had three dogs before, one was a golden oldie, so it was really like a two dog household as far as chaos went.:D Maybe you could swing it on that line?

    I'm in love with all three:love::love::love: Never owned a Pom, but boy those two are real heart breakers. They do have a loyal look about them, plus alert and intelligent.

    O.K. now convincing arguments. Not necessarily in order, just ideas.

    1. Show them Pom Pom's picture, that should soften them up for a start.

    2. Make a written Pledge that you will do ALL the work, feed, train, clean up etc. etc.

    3. You will pay for everything, food, clothes etc.

    4. Play on their soft side, "how lovely to help a sick doggy" type of thing.

    5. It's Christmas, give a gift that keeps on giving - no other presents required just let me have Pom Pom.

    6. I'm experienced in looking after Poms with heart problems., so I know what may go wrong, how to deal with it etc. etc.

    7. Doesn't she look so much like (insert name of your last Pom)

    8. Promise to wash cars, housework, laundry for an entire year (or more if necessary).

    9. Emotional blackmail - they know how good you are with looking after sick Poms, so wouldn't they want Pom Pom to have the best Pom Mom in the world.

    10. They get free cuddles and kisses.

    Hope this helps, I'm sure others will have more. Or, do what I did, just get her and let them find her at home. Worked with my partner who was totally opposed to me getting another dog. Just made all the arrangements and Ra Kismet was home before he arrived home from work. Initially, colder than an iceberg, five seconds with Ra Kismet turning on puppy charm and he melted.

    I'm going with emotion black mail. My mom is hesitant to have another pom because of how close she was to mine. So I'm hoping emotional black mail will work.

    My mom would use having Chase as a reason not to get her because she could hurt him.
    So I went to show the border collie pup to my mom and she wasn't there, so either she was put to sleep or adopted. I'm really hoping that she was adopted(it would have been nice if I could have.):(

    I'm praying that the pup got adopted Southerngirl. It sucks that you weren't able to adopt her. :(

    Has everyone already clicked through my sig line and looked at the Calvin doppleganger pups?
    If you want to know what the pup will look like in a year, please see Calvin two weeks ago: Calvin logs.JPG

    Now Calvin was fixed two years ago, so I know it ain't him, but I gotta wonder if one of his littermates escaped to RI ...!

    PS Look at the video of the Petfinder puppies. Just seeing that little clip, you know it is a dog with an awesome temperament. Can barely see, can't hear, and is walking around like she's sure the world is a wonderful place.

    OMD!!!!!!!!!!!! A & C thank you for pointing to the video:) Brought a tear of happiness to my eyes to see her trotting around, you're right, she thinks the world is a wonderful place.

    They are both absolutely ADORABLE:love::love: I'd have them in a flash if I didn't live so far away.

    And yes, definitely Calvin doubles!!!!!!!!!! Calvin is so beautiful:love:

    I'm praying too she was adopted. I am sure she's in a wonderful home right now, being loved very much:)

    Zeus is an older dog and Ra Kismet has never hurt him at all, in fact, it's a bit the other way around as Zeus does 'boss' Ra Kismet at times. Though he's never hurt Ra Kismet. And it's actually made Zeus decide to learn tricks he wouldn't have dreamed of doing prior to Ra Kismet's arrival.:) Maybe you could use this to convince your Mom.
