ive been dying to buy another puppy for ages but fi says no. and today, i was sitting at the back of my house smoking (filthy habit, planning to quit) and in a terrible mood. Literally, as i was thinking “eugh, things have to get better” a puppy scampered up to me! My yard backs on to the street and the gate is broken. so hed run in, and come round the back
i was dying to keep him, but instead i picked him up, played with him and returned him to the house (ten houses down!) where he apparently came from. i feel i deserve a medal for not puppy stealing!

Oh man. You definetly do:) I have such a soft spot that I might have done something crazy like investigate it’s current home by knocking on the door and giving a “once over” to deem if they were more worthy of having this puppy than I, lol! But you did the right thing-especially since they are almost neighbors. woulda been kinda hard to get away with 😉

Not gonna lie, I came into this thread hoping for pics. But good job resisting the urge to puppynap. I want to steal all the puppies.

@russian_doll: id been to the local shop to buy breakfast things, so went inside to drop off my bags before i tried to return him…and my fi’s face “did you go and buy a puppy?!” but he was quite accepting of it, made me tempted to say yes. or buy one in the future
@Leemarie: oh i was tempted to paint white spots on the puppy so i could keep him and they wouldnt recognise him as theirs haha
its hard for me to get used to the fact that, here in mexico…no dogs live inside. in all kinds of weather…the dogs stay outside. they see it as unhygenic. and if they dont have wire fencing…then the dogs go out..wander on the road. etc. My fi is a bit horrified that i let ours inside

First of all–here’s your medal.
Second, if you want to stop smoking, I’ll tell you that I used Chantix and it worked! I was afraid that it was expensive and it wouldn’t work, so I told myself that I’d only take it for one month, not two, which would cost me such and in cartons of cigarettes. So I took it very seriously taking the pills for the first month. I smoked for the first 10 days of it.
It gives you more memorable and vivid dreams, and you might have to cut the pills in half and make a schedule to take them differently than the way they instruct.
Sorry. Hope I didn’t thread jack. I just really wanted to tell you that about smoking.
Now, we return to our regularly scheduled topic.

@honeybee1999: that does help actually! i tried the nicotine spray in the mouth and was nearly sick so got put off by quit smoking aids. and the patch burned…i had a big welt on me for days after. maybe a pill is the answer!

@newname_99: Yeah, but if you get sick like that, I highly recommend breaking up the pill. Like I said, I smoked for about 10 days, then I forgot, I went to the gum after the 30 days with the pill. I started on 4mg gum, now I’m on the 2mg. I stopped smoking in June 21st, I think.
Go see a doctor and tell them that you want it, but you do get sick off the aids. Also you can go to the chantix site and get a coupon to help pay for it. Trust me, you need it.
You gotta know this, too. You will feel WORSE when you stop smoking and you will feel like you can’t breathe. You will feel like something is wrong with you and you will want to have doctors run all kinds of heart and lung tests, but there is NOTHING wrong with you. It’s withdrawals. I read a lot of forums for quitters and it was helpful in knowing what to expect.
You have to eat something before you take this chantix, cause it will make you nauseous. I couldn’t handle it, so I broke the pill up and took half then like 2 hours later, took the other half. I was really determined to quit after 13 years, so you need to be sure you are determined.
