His name is Tanner, and he's a Pekapoo from Louisiana. He's five months old, and will only get to be 10 pounds at the most. I have been searching petfinder.com every few days for new listings, and on Monday I came across this little guy. I immediately emailed the person, and within seconds she emailed me back an application. She had JUST posted his profile, and within the hour she received 7 emails about him! THANKFULLY, I was the first that had responded, and even though I live out of state, she let me email her pictures of our home and yard instead of a home visit. Tonight I had a scare because she had emailed me and said that she needed to check with his other shelter to make sure he would be okay by himself (without another dog or children to play with). I thought for a few minutes that I had lost him and about burst into tears. But she promptly emailed me back and felt that everything was okay, and that she knew it was only fair that I be able to have him since my application was in first. Whew!
I hope he knows that I went through a LOT to get him (and I was rejected by many snobby pet people in the process). Also, I hope he doesn't get a big head because he's big man on campus----everybody wanted him! I am so excited, and I hope it doesn't jinx anything that I blogged about it before he's officially home. But I have it in writing that I am to be Tanner's mommy.
I almost have my new baby!!!!
