about a dog

I had this whole post drafted up, to write about  dog sitting for Wilfredo, Lisa Congdon‘s beloved pup, while she and her wife were in New York for 10 days.

20140527-165031-60631624.jpgHow Wilfredo was a sort of dog trial to see what life with a dog is like. Because I’ve never had a dog, but there’s been this dog-wanting-itch.

So I was going to write about Wilfredo and what I learned. And I was going to muse about the dogs we’ve been looking at on Petfinder and wonder what sort of dog we should get.

Except, before I could write that post:

We don’t know what kind of dog he is or how big he will be. All we know is that he is not house broken or crate trained, likes to chase cats, and is overflowing with puppy cuteness and love.

  2. You are killing me with your menagerie! Rufus looks adorable. Does he like to chase chickens?
