potential doggie update  
So I didn't get a reply on the application I made for the pug mix doggie that I was all in omglove with, so I sent another email, and was told that she's being held for another family. :( (I was actually too disappointed yesterday to post about it because I am that awesome and was so looking forward to having a dog again. I went home and moped in my dog-less house.)

Now, I could have taken this as a sign that the universe is Saving Me From Myself And That My Mother Is Right And Having A Dog Will Completely Ruin My Life In Untold Ways. Or I could spend the entire day on Petfinder.com conducting lots of elaborate searches. Which do you think I chose?


She is a mutt who was made in Taiwan! No, literally, she was found under somebody's car in Taiwan and shipped to Aloha, Oregon in somebody's luggage. OMFG. (Somewhere between Taiwan and Aloha she was spayed and house-trained.) I sent in an application and asked to find out more about her, to see if she would like living in the Aloha Island Abode (and future unknown residences of the Little Red Household). They might think I'm too weird, though, after requesting a pet meet for my pet rats (HEY, it shows responsible pet ownership, so shut it).

Do you think I will have to learn Chinese for a non-English-speaking dog?

I <3 you so much!

And yes, you'll have to learn Chinese. I still automatically try to speak to all dogs in German, since that's the language our dog spoke. :)

wow, what a great looking little dog... seriously, she's got a great face and eyes that seem to reaching right out to you... what a little world traveler she is... hope you get her... and if you don't, I hope someone gets here that will be good to her...

(I can't go to dog pounds... they just about kill me)

That dog is smiling. I love that dog, and need to have it.

For some reason, she looks like she would be an LR dog. Cross my fingers for you!

Do you realize that you are, quite literally, in my backyard? I did not, until this post.

I actually grew up in Aloha. Holy cow. How did I not know/remember this? Okay, I know we don't know each other well enough to meet, yet--so far, I've just stalked your journal, but still! How awesome is this!

And yes, that doggie is precious. Not that pugs aren't completely ugly/adorable, but...awwww....

Heh, made in Taiwan! That is too cute!

Cute! And bizarre origin story!

What I said about terriers last post? Ignore it. I forgot about the rats, and the insane cuteness will not compensate for the terriers thinking they're prey.

OMG with the extreme cuteness!!!

And I'm sure they're pleased that you want the dog to meet the rats. It means you are awesome and love the pets you already have. *nods*

maybe one of the rats speaks Chinese?
