update on "my house isn't a shelter for homeless animals"
YAY! Dh worked it out so the Bull mastiff dog (who is part pit) is going to go live with ss19. Ss19 just moved into his own tiny one bedroom house but it has a big fenced yard. Yesterday we called him and asked if he could take the dog if we help him with the expense of getting the dog fixed and help out with food if needed. Ss19 can bring him on visits weekly. The original owner was actually ss19's childhood friend, so the dog is going to be taken care of by all of us, we'll all pitch in for his care, even original owner said he'd send money up from college once in awhile for food or toys. Whew, problem solved, but we had to really sit down and pound this one out b/c I am not going to let my cat suffer on account of a dog.
The other problem is dh's lies. I addressed this too and he admitted to lying by omission and when I told him that he'd get better responses from me if he just outright told me the awful truth he agreed to do better. We also have a marriage counseling session set for next week!
Anyhow, I know some of you think I'm a woosy but taking out a gun is simply not my style (foxie lol you made me smile) and working it out to find a home for this dog was so relieving for me. The dog is a good animal, just not in a household with a cat!
So just thought I'd update on that since it was a stressful weekend for me. :O
