wishful thinking

This is Riley. He is in a rescue. due to a divorce. This dog just kills me. Can you fall in love with a photograph? It would take me 7 hours to drive to where he is. Then you know they have to approve you. I'm crazy about him. I think he's the cutest thing I ever laid eyes on. I'd let him sleep on the bed. He looks like a leaner and a grinner and just the right kind of a guy. How am I going to ask my husband if I can go on a 7 hour trip and look at a dog and hope that we fall madly in love at first sight? But you know it's only with dogs that it happens that way. I sure wish there was a real Santa Claus or a good fairy or some magical genie in a bottle. I just can't quit looking at him. Riley.

Does your hunny read your blog?
From one rescuer to another, he looks like YOUR dog. Just like I knew Carson was my dog, and even now with the house full of grandkids and company, even with me gone for days at a time, he knows too.
Your hunny needs to read your blog today.
A 7 hour road trip can be an adventure!

You have such a tender heart. Here's something to help you:

He is probably already adopted by a little old lady who will spoil him rotten.

He drools.

He hogs the bed.

He licks your feet.

Heidi said...

I say GO FOR IT! I would make the trip with you if I lived closer!!!

Farmchick is right. Life is too short. Go get this dog. He's calling your name.

signed sleep deprived and frazzled with her 3 new dogs, which incl-ed a 9 hour drive to pick up the 2 pups from an animal shelter. i may be a total a wreck and the house in shambles with this new hunk of fur, but its worth it...

shh don't tell them~

now get in the car~ oh and prequalify before you drive, its like taking a test these days, i sent in a 10 page essay with pics from my first childhood dog on up, it paid off, i really had to sell myself first!

riley needs you, he is waiting...
