William and I went to the poodle shelter today. This was in place of the pool. William was excited...He calls me at work and tells me that is does not make sense to take a shower before he visits the dogs. I agree with him. Initially I had planned to have him shower before I got home from work.
William wanted to eat lunch, but I told him that we had to visit the dogs. William absolutely loved it. He was not too excited about the really excited jumpy dogs. They made him nervous. But, luckily they had alot of quieter dogs. They loved being help and groomed. William petted them and I groomed them. They would snuggle up to William and want to be petted. William was afraid that they would bite him. But, he got over that.
After we got home, he told me that he wants to go back again. I told him since they arer 2 blocks away. we can go as often as he wants.
He agreed with me. This is better than having a dog in our house. He watched them peeing and pooping and said that they were like him. I saw that and thought, I do not have to clean that up. Yes, visiting dogs will work perfectly for us. William wants a dog and this way he gets to spend time with lots of different dogs.
There was one dog that has congestive heart failure. William loved the fact that the dog had the same illness that he has. That dog was perfect. Older and just wanted to sit and be petted and brushed.
