It’s no lie I’ve been wanting to adopt a dog for awhile now, gazing longingly at adoption sites, Craigslist postings, and even going so far as attending puppy fairs at Petsmart, as staunchly opposed to their practices as I am. This weekend I came across a handsome 1 year-old Blue Heeler named Bo. I’ve got an appointment to meet him and his owner this week and will let you know how this pans out. If all goes as planned, come this weekend, the young gent and I will be at the park, playing a game of fetch and meeting new, ahem, people. We can both even wear our Tanner leather to seal the deal .
The $125 re-homing fee even includes toys, brush, crate, bowls, food, leash, old collar (gotta upgrade), and treats. That alone is a deal. Plus I get the dog. One question remains: Is a 1 year old dog too old to go through a name change? I realize it’s all in how he’s responding to his current moniker, but I thought I would posit the inquiry just for good measure.
