- Wedding: December 2009
In 2001 I brought home a dog. My friend was giving them up for adoption and I took one home.
When I got married 3 years ago, I left her home with my mom because I could not take care of her at the time.(Yes, I lived with my parents up until marriage). However, I still pay for her shots etc. My mom asked me to take her with me because she no longer wants to take care of a dog. My dad and my little sister were opposed to the idea because they said she was old and wouldn’t adapt easily.
She has grown old and she just wants to be left alone. She bites anyone who would disturb her peace, even if it’s only to fill her bowl with food (Yikes!). I still think we can train her to live with us even if she won’t play with us.
DH wants to get a pet but refuses to bring home my old dog. He says that she’s too old for us to dramatically change her environment (We live in an apartment and work full time). He also says that we need to raise the dog so our dog would respect us equally (she doesn’t like him). I feel that we should not get a new pet because we technically already have a pet that we can bring home and rehabilitate for her to adapt to our life style.
So what do you think?
