I’m about 75% sure we are adopting a dog tomorrow that we just saw at the Animal Shelter. He’s part German Shepard and part Great Dane–about as big as that there horse. Not the way I expected to spend my twilight years, looking after a small horse. But sometimes life just sneaks up on you.
I don't know what it's like to live in a house without any sort of animal-buddy, be it a small horse or a big snail. This, life sneaking up on you, I think you're going to enjoy it. 🙂
We've had hermit crabs, a snake, 3 rats [sweetest things in the world but they don't live long enough]. I've never had a dog, so I figure it's about time. I'll let you know what happens.
