I’m not sure what you’d call it, actually, but the OSC family is considering adding a dog to the mix. She’s a 2-year-old German Shepherd–a 90-pound puppy, for all practical purposes. She’s had all her shots, she’s apparently quite loving and has been well and responsibly raised and trained. And she’s free to a good home. The story is that the dog who birthed her is getting hostile with her, and one of them must go.
We’ve talked about getting a dog for a while, and our son absolutely loves them. So this week we’ll take her into our home. If it works out, she’ll stay. If not, we’ve got an arrangement with her current owner, who simply wants to put her into a good home. I respect that, and it feels like a good fit at this point. At the end of the week we’ll know a little better.
Of course, anyone who has any words of wisdom in such cases is welcome to comment. Thanks.
