The Impossible Choice when Searching For A Pet
The Impossible Choice When searching for A Pet
It was time for the kid to have a pet and we all wanted him to have the family favourite which is the Boxer Dog .
We are all mad on Boxers. One exception is my Daughter, who is 'Boss' in this matter, and doesn't want a big dog. The search is on for a little cuddly mite. Help ! Where do I start ? Poodle,Fox terrier, Wow ! there's millions of them.
Where have all these dogs come from? Well, thought I. Surely the best place to start is in the park as everyday, when out with my Boxer, we meet hundreds of little 'sweety,sweety' breeds, so in my usual optimistic fashion, I went 'sweety' dog hunting' .
One hour later and frustrated by failure I put my mission aside until the next day as all I had accomplished was lots of conversation with owners of Great Danes,Bull Mastiffs and every big breed imaginable .
It's easy to pick up a newspaper and read about a breed but, I reasoned ,that getting information straight from the owners was a better idea. Early next day I walked to the park fully confident that by lunchtime I would have the name of the breed which would very soon be installed in our family or rather our daughters. I saw a group of women walking by, about five of them, and they had about Six different breeds between them.
Can we talk dogs ?
"Excuse me" I called, "can we talk dogs ?" well Two hours went very quickly ,as each woman vied for attention to tell me all the good points about her breed, and I was more confused then ever. I felt like a judge at a dog show." maybe tomorrow" I thought as I made my way home feeling not quite so optimistic........
