Divided Loyalties

The lady down the street has 5 chihuahua puppies-yes they are for sale. Gorgeous gorgeous creatures, each one it's own little furry person.

I always feel guilty when I "want" something like that, because there are other dogs that are just as deserving of homes that no one will want.

Now admittedly, sometimes I'd like a little roll with Brad Pitt....and I don't feel a bit guilty for it. But, wanting these chihuahua puppies makes me feel bad-probably in part because I could really HAVE one, whereas with Brad, oh well.

And yet, I couldn't love the gorgeous blue puppy any more than I already love Greta. An in fact, I could buy the whole litter for a lot less than I've spent on Greta's health. So, maybe I'm not such a bad person after all.

I know exactly how you feel. I feel the same way everytime I seriously consider buying a puppy from a reputable breeder, because just once I'd like a healthy pet. But there are so many in the shelters...

so I bring home the three legged kitten and forget about the puppy for a while.

You are a woman who is in serious need of starting some sort of dog-related business. You love animals way too much to be working in a boring old office. There must be some way you can help animals and also make money.
