Pet Rescue Operations

I am trying to adopt a rescue dog. I do not want a puppy and I have a good history as a dog owner.

I had to fill out paperwork which I felt should have allowed me to adopt children.

I am looking to adopt a 10 year old poodle with the shortest ears I have ever seen in my life. Doggie is a male, white haired, short cut, no mustache guy who needs a home.

The rescue people answered my email and told me that they would be in touch. They explained the delay as the foster family was on vacation. Okay.

Maybe meet the dog on Wednesday. Then the powers that be want to inspect my
home. Hate that people want to look at my stuff.

How does one dress for this this?


  1. I don't know how you dress, but I suggest vegan hors d'oeuvres.

    1. What, I gotta feed these people, holy shit.

      I was kinda hoping in and out the door, thank you maam, style.

      I was not happy about the coffee thing, I gave up on the tea as I was too cheap to order the pot-rather buy 3 dog beds than one tea pot. Oh holy shit, this is not working out well.

  2. Sorry, I was kidding about feeding them. But they might poke around a lot and be cluelessly rude.

    Don't give up. I know some of these animal rescue/shelter people can be extreme. I volunteered with a number of them. But maybe you'll get lucky and hit one who's actually sane.

  3. That aLL sounds bizarrely overcomplicated just to get a dog!

    I think it is interesting when I see a sign that says, "Free Kittens" - hah! "free" - pets usuaLLy cost alot of money, especiaLLy if you want them to be healthy and happy.

    The downstairs renters adopted a dog and it was very much like adopting a human baby.

    What do you wear? Clothes that say: I'm friendly and like to talk walks with dogs. :-)
