Quick "Dallas" update! Losing my new friend...

Well my friends,

This has been a week of challenges. On top of everything life throws at us I showed you a clip of "Dallas" my newly acquired family member. We are getting along famously. Including Jill although she still gets a little perturbed that her quiet world of "Old dog rest" is being disrupted.

Dallas came home with me on Tuesday afternoon after a semi-traumatic neuter session and was still groggy from his anesthesia. He recognized "home" after having to stay at the animal shelter for three days while all was being prepared at home....or so I thought.dallas coming home

I am trying to be a good master and make the right decisions and to acclimate him properly.

To Date the expenses have been occurring quite rapidly and my head is spinning!!!

ACTUAL ADOPTION: no biggie....$85.00

New chain link dog run with product and labor..............$950.00

Target/Walmart, toys, food, bed, collar, leash, bowls, brush, etc....$103.00

Wellness appointment with Vet....yet to be determined


Thursday after the completion of the fence I finally was able to let him in the yard and go do some necessary shopping without worrying whether or not my sofa would become a chew toy. So, in he goes in to his very own brand new dog run and off I go shopping.

Home from shopping three hours later I went to let him out of the dog run.


Dog gone.

Panic, shock, disbelief, mourning, fear and dread were just the beginning of what I was feeling. After throwing the goods into the fridge I ran out to start driving to look for him.

Around the corner came a very smiley Dallas with the look on his face like "where have you been?

Smart dog came home. He had simply dug two feet under the fence and let himself out.

So, Monday there is more work to be done on the fence and I'm quite sure there are more challenges to come but we are going to be a happy family soon enough!deb n dogs

Hi Deb. What a cute story with a happy ending. I would adopt more dogs but I have already adopted to dogs and one cat from the local SPCA. ~ Lana

Deb, your older dog looks just like my Cooper:

Hi Lana! Yea for you! I love it when I come across animal lovers. How could anyone turn away such lovely souls?

Karen! She sure does! How old is Cooper? They have the very same markings on their faces. I have always loved the eye liner painted on! Australian Shephard right? Aren't they smart??? Pretty dogs. I like your little one too!

Deb :-)

Deb - Glad to hear that Dallas came back!  I see that you have changed your "look" a bit since I last saw you.  :)

Deb, Our furry friends sure can get expensive...just like children.  And just like children they're worth every penny!

What a beautiful dog; my dog Lars is my whole life at times.

Debe - A pet can become such an important part of the family.  It is amazing how costly it can get but more often than not well worth it.  You had me sitting on the edge of my seat, I was glad there was a happy ending.

Deb he looks like a digger and a climber. Be prepared. If he can not dig he might try climbing then what. Good Luck!

Debra, I'm so happy that he returned home.  It doesn't take long to get attached does it.  We have a fairly new rescue also.  I think he was found wandering and he stays very close.  I don't even like to leave him at the groomers as he gets separation anxiety.

Deb, I love that picture!  It is so cute, all of you!  Your older dog looks perturbed that you are hugging the new one :)

Ha ! Now how many times was I on the phone with you screaming that my damn husky's were out of the fence AGAIN ! Dallas is proving the handful. Try the electric fence that was the only thing that seemed to stop mine. That's until they started tripping over the wire and pulling the plug that is !

BTW - LOVE your new look ! You are glowing, really, truly you are !

She wants to play, and run around the yard, and of course smell a butt or two!

Glad Dallas is fine with a happy ending, and Jill gets along fine too. Love you new hair look Deb!!
