I hate to report back with what I am going to tell you guys but im not a liar either so I'm going to tell you what happened and try to make this long story short if possible. I looked at the Basset Hound that we had the adoption pending on and liked him but still had my mind made up to take Earnest Tubbs the Beagle. So I took Earnest out and played with him for 30 minutes and decider I was going to take him. His medical condition is looking really good and he's actually very happy too and when I took him back inside, he was actually glad to be going back to his little kennel or pen whatever u call it.
I told the lady that I was gonna take Earnest probably but that I wanted to take the Basset out of his cage and take him for a walk outside and get to know him just to be sure of my decision. We lost our Basset hound 4 months or so ago...had to put him to sleep and we are still heartbroken over him. I've been trying to adopt a Basset but they are very hard to come by and they literally NEVER show up at a shelter. Anyway this Basset is a really great dog also and we really liked him and I could tell my gf liked him better than the beagle so because of how hard they are to come by and stuff we ended up taking him because we felt like we just couldn't pass him up.
We don't get him for a week because he's got to be nuteured and micro chipped first. Right now I am sitting here with a blank face and not as happy as I should be for a guy that just found one unbelievablely awesome dog. I am really sad and beating myself up alot right now, I wont.lie to you. I shouldn't have said that I was going to get Earnest until after I adopted him but I was 99% sure that I was going to get him and I was happy about helping him.
To anyone that gets mad and downvotes me, honestly I do not blame you if you do becsuse I'm more than a little upset with myself right now as well. I should have just kept my mouth shut about Earnest and not said anything until it happened, but I was excited. The good news is though that I am going to keep tabs on Earnest and if he does not get adopted really soon, we are going to go get him and take him in. This was a super tough decision that I made and honestly it felt nearly as bad as the day I lost my dog a few months back. This is not a happy day guys at all. Please don't pound on me too hard because I feel bad enough already believe me.
