Okay, so I hadn't really planned on getting another dog anytime soon, really. As the poster child of the Petfinder Addicts Support Group(LOL, not everyone will know where this comes from...), you all know that when I break down and check Petfinder, I tend to find a dog that I want desperately, and one way or another it never works out. The dog is already adopted, can't get phone or email responses from the shelter, something comes up in my life; something always happens so that the dog I'm just in love with doesn't work out. It's just not meant to be. A good friend of mine adopted a dog from a New Mexico shelter several months ago. I posted about him a while back, as I was helping him with training. The dog is a little genius, very enthusiastic, and slightly on the crazy side. Smart + eager + crazy=Tx is in love. I was crazy about the dog since the first day I worked with him, and jokingly told my friend that one of these days I would pupnap Cowboy. Welll..... My friend has had some life issues come up that I won't go into, and may be rehoming Cowboy. Of course I'm the first one he told. The shelter does not ask that dogs are returned to them, but if my friend can't find a good home he will take him back there. He is trying to figure out a way to keep him, but if it doesn't work out, I will probably take him so long as he gets along with Mud and Z. He seems like the right fit for them, because he has a middle-of-the-road personality--he isn't really dominant or really submissive. In my post about him, I think I explained him as being a perfect mix between Mud and Z--he is like Zeke in that everything he does is in high-speed, but he has more self-control and is medium/high drive, like Mud. He learns VERY quickly. He's confident like Mud, but bouncy and exuberant like Zeke. I am completely smitten with him and have been since the first day I worked with him. ^^ Sooo......there is a good possibility that I will be getting Cowboy. The shelter had listed him as a Catahoula mix, but I'm not so sure. He's about 50-60 pounds, Zeke's size, he's tricolor, smooth coated, and 2 years old. I'll have to get a picture of him. He's really cute. Anyway...so we'll see what happens!
