I don't know what rescues are like in Texas but the experiences we had with rescues are that they tend to view working a lot as a demerit, it shouldn't be but it was, hopefully you have a different experience.

Yeah, we shall see.   I generally try and work at least one to two days a week from home, so that would give the dog some "human" time.   And of course, dogs generally sleep all day so between being able to glare out the front windows and going in the back yard and lounge while I am gone, the dog should be entertained.

Oh, they called me today and are going to give me a home inspection tonight.   I guess they want to make sure I don't have any Mike Vick posters up.

Jees! When they see your pad, they'll probably want you to adopt more dogs.. :o

Well, I hid all the chains and Mike Vick posters and "passed" the home visit and the background paperwork check.   

Next step, someone calling me back and we discuss dogs.

Awesome! The wheels are definitely in motion. Is it like a match service? Do they make you do a video of you just waving a tennis ball in front of the camera?

Ha-Ha!  

My guess is they will have me review the dogs online (linked via the "available" link) and then discuss what I am looking for and if any of the dogs available and I would be a good match.   Then I would meet the dog, etc.

I like long walks in the park, cudding, bacon and I have a fireplace.   WHY I have a fireplace in houston is anyone's guess.
