In the Dog House

I should be in the dog house for several reasons..
1.) It is already Friday and this is my second post of the week? Really, Katie, what happened?

Well, not to make excuses but I had a j-o-b interview. I spent all of Tuesday preparing for it and then Wednesday was doomsday, I mean the day of my interview. I spent two and half hours being interviewed only to be told I don't have enough experience. I was told if I had one more year of experience the job would be mine. I was pretty bummed, but I am in real estate classes to become a Realtor.

Then yesterday I spent the better part of my day driving to visit Bob at his school. Usually I take the train here but this way I figured we'd have a car at our disposal. So here I am visiting my man, and what did we decide to do for fun? Go to the dog house, per say, the animal shelter.

We went to the local humane society and visited with all the homeless dogs. We are such dog people, how can you not love the most loving and forgiving species available to man?

I'm not sure if any of you know about this site, but we love Petfinder.com
























Petfinder allows you to get "in the dog house", if you will. You can search their database of every shelter throughout the nation and find different animals by species, breed, age, sex, and size. It's fun and shows all of the available options without the outlandish prices from a breeder. And at the same time you're rescueing an animal without a home, while bringing that new addition to your family. It's basically win-win for all included.

The search bar is so easy to use, and the results are constantly being updated. Some animals even have a video to watch of them too.

About three years ago my Mom and I drove to Wisconsin (which you never have to twist my arm to do, it's where a grand majority of my favorite childhood memories were made) to pick up a little yellow lab puppy mix for our very good family friend and priest. He had just switched parishes and lived alone in a new home, he is quite the animal lover but we knew he wouldn't buy a dog for himself, so we took matters into our own hands. We bought him his dog, Lady, and the two are inseparable. It's nice to see a happy ending to an unconventional beginning.

I hope all of you have a happy weekend ahead of you, and I am terribly sorry for my delayed post. I promise, it wont happen again.

  1. That is so frustrating when someone says that you would have the job if you had more experience. It's hard to have a comeback after that. Well, good for you for trying and keep on keepin' on... :)
