If it's a puppy FF, go get it, it will make you laugh anyway through all the naughty times...
I did go back to get him.
About an hour or two after I wrote that post. I have no will power at all.
Sometimes ya gotta listen to your heart.
And he's already made me laugh. He's 3 months old, absolutely adorable, very alert, inquisitive, playful, affectionate, and just about everything a puppy that age should be, including being a non-stop ball of energy. He finally knocked himself out after joyfully playing with his new toys and he's asleep in his crate, hopefully for the night.
As soon as I got him home, any hesitations I had about getting a puppy, and this puppy in particular, seemed to vanish. He is such a sweetie pie. I am already completely smitten.
Of course, I may change my mind if he starts peeing on the rug, eating the furniture, barking all night, and destroying my shoes.
Tomorrow I'll probably take him over to my Vet to get him checked-out health-wise. He seems very bouncy and healthy and bright-eyed, but I'm already feeling like a nervous new mom and worrying every time he gives a little cough--which he just did. He's not really coughing much, it's just a single cough, and the one I just heard was only the second one since we got home 6 hours ago. I don't think that's really anything to be alarmed about, but I'll be happier if I hear that from my Vet.
Anyway, I feel like a new and wonderful furry friend has just entered my life, and it does help to ease the pain, and fill the void, I've experienced since the loss of my dog in January.
I'm glad I went back and got him.
