Next step is to go over to the foster house and meet the below dog.   We might be able to get together this week if our schedules work out.

Look at that sweet face!

This is my favourite part of the description:

Anabelle adores people but barks convincingly at the door when someone rings or knocks.

I wonder if she can also do accents. :)

I like that her ears are uncut.

The Meryl Streep of dogs apparently.

I much prefer the "uncut" look for the ears than the cut look.

Okay, just got back from visiting the dog and she is a giant sweetie.   After discussing all her personality traits, about the only downside will be that she really does not like other dogs or animals, so I probably should avoid dog parks.   But since I am not really a dog park person, I can live with that.

Starting the paperwork and with any luck, will have a new pooch on Monday.

On the way home, stopped in Pet Smart and spent a small fortune on dog bed, leash, bowls, food, training snacks, etc.   

The dog is going to eat better than I am.

Honestly, the ingredients read better than most human food.   And they actually have this (although I will be using dry dog food).

Yeah they also do Pork Stew though I'm puzzled as to how they can do that.
