We didn’t get Betty Boop. I have no idea why, but I hope the home she did find is in fact, truly, the best home for her.
I feel like world has turned upside-down and inside-out and *I’m* the dog in the kennel in the shelter in that Pedigree commercial who keeps getting passed up even though I’m so clearly very awesome. (You know the one — the one with David Duchovny’s voice-over that makes me want to give the dog the lines, “David Duchovny, why won’t you love me?!” I keep trying to post it here from YouTube but it’s not showing up for some reason.)
I feel like baying a sad song, “Ar-roo-roo-roo.”
But, there’s still hope. There are other doggies we’re interested in who need homes. And tomorrow the regional coordinator woman is going to visit our home with one of her dogs, and when she sees that I have the perfect Brittany-sized arm chair in my study, where I spend all of my time, and where a Brittany can happily hang out and watch the birdies in the tree outside, and when she meets Bullock — whom she hasn’t talked to — and finds out he’s gentle and kind and adorable around dogs, she’ll know we’re the *perfect* Brittany home!
