What do you mean, I can't have him? I don't get it.

Finally, Fosterbitch called me back (she was actually pretty nice, but it took her forever to call me back, so the name stays). And with bad news, no less. Apparently, some stupid Canadian is driving down to see him on Saturday and will most likely take him home. Isn't there some law about taking animals over the border? If not, there should be. Because I wanted that dog. Not another dog, that one. Why can't she understand it was fate that brought me to that site to find that one perfect dog. Why can't she realize I want him, therefore, I should have him. What is wrong with her?

Yes, I am throwing a bit of a fit over this. I may even be stomping my foot in anger. I could be plotting to figure out ways to stop those Canadians from taking him. If I knew their names, I would call them and tell them something horrible had happened and not to come, and then show up at the foster home and say I was them and take him home.

Somehow, some way, I am getting that dog.

Canadians are known for being super-polite, and totally non-confrontational. Americans are known for the exact opposite... I think we need to get in touch with the Canadians involved, and make it quite clear that if they want MARLEY they are going to have to fight for him! They will, of course, have to acquiesce give him back!

Geez, in the time it took you to write this post, ten dogs at your local pound were just gassed. Now just go the fuck down there and get another one.

For crying out loud, there are all kinds of dogs awaiting adoption-slash-rescuing at cosmetics factories, drug companies, and Michael Vick's ranch. Why not just go take your pick? If you play your cards right, you might just get free mascara or prozac out of the deal too!

Marley, chester the molester IS cute....but ya, there's lots of dogs out there that need love. I know you've seen those commercials on tv.....those pitiful looking dogs in shelters that are just crying and begging someone to take them home and love them.....
