Just got back home. My boyfriend bought a moped and we went to pick it up about half an hour from here. We pulled in the driveway and they had a huge St. Bernard/chow mix, and a little Beagle mix tied to a cable in the front yard. A third dog, a female Beagle came running up... she was really skinny and dirty and covered in ticks. Of course I fell in love immediately. I sat there petting her and she climbed in my lap and proceeded to lick my face. The guy came out and said "you want that dog? someone dropped her off here yesterday" :angryfire: . She was about 6-7 years old, soooooo sweet, very small. As hard as I tried I could not talk my boyfriend into letting me bring her home. I did pull all the ticks off of her though, that should make her feel a little better. The guy doesn't want her hanging around, he's annoyed because she keeps trying to run in the house whenever the door gets opened, and he's moving soon and will probably leave her behind which makes me so sad. Poor little thing tried so hard to get into the car with us... she even tried to jump up in the trunk when it was open. I felt so bad, and I'm hoping if I really try, I can talk my boyfriend into letting me at least foster her. I hate to think of her being left behind to fend for herself there. So please send good vibes that I can talk him into it, and if you have any advice for difficult men, let me know.
