I want to have pets. Maybe a couple of dogs and a couple of cats. Having animals around makes life better. But, unfortunately, I haven’t been able to have a pet since my last Beta fish in Tuscaloosa, Alabama in 1996. Work and travel made it hard to keep my fern alive (that fern lasted 8 years with me before I had to give it a better home when I moved) much less something that needed food and water.
My mother has had two very sweet little dogs over the past 15 years. Rusty was a little red poodle. He was shy and skittish but he was all heart and sweetness. I got to meet Zoe, the Lhasa Apso a few times. She was perhaps shyer than Rusty but she was a tough girl and very loving to my mom.
I can’t wait to meet the next member of the family and hope that Zoe and Rusty have a good time playing together in the big dog park in the sky! If anyone is in the Murrells Inlet area and is looking for a new pet, this may be the place to go, All 4 Paws.
