I lost. I pointed out all the hassles. I pointed out the expense. I pointed out possible future complications. I made my point very clear. I established my position on the matter very firmly – nicely but firmly. And then I lost. Did I expect to win ? Hmmm…….why have I not learnt by now ?
The current name (as chosen by the girls) for the hound is Winston – I have chosen and will stick to “Beast”.
It has waaaaay more skin than body and is uglier than it looks there. A lot uglier – but then I love cats, not dogs. Cats rule – and both cats have already begun to teach Beast that in the food chain, he is at the bottom. But J loves dogs and if she is happy, that’s what matters. He’s a Great Dane (not yet he isn’t !)
