You're right, lady. They really love him, it was obvious, and were very excited to take him home. The woman already posed a comment on the humane society's Facebook post about him going home, saying he was on his dog bed chewing on rawhide. I welled up again. I'm so happy for him, my heart is very full. I would like to think the love and time spent with him every Saturday did contribute to his happiness while he was here and his disposition. It just really hurts sometimes being dog-less. Especially when I wanted that particular dog so much. I have been walking dogs there since June and I have liked them all, but really adored maybe a half dozen of them. He topped my list.
Rich - my cat is just naturally very skittish. She's afraid of any human being that isn't me or my dad. I'd just be worried she'd be stressed out, and the dog would get in the way of our relationship and bond. I don't know how I could test a dog out without bringing my cat to the shelter. Any suggestions?
I wish I knew someone with a dog and could have them bring them over or something... but sadly I do not.
