So yesterday our neighbor stops by...."Hi Cindy, have you seen my new dog?"
"Well sort of, I saw him through your window the other night. We drove by your house to see him, but you weren't home."
"Well, I brought him over to meet you."
"Um, I don't really have time right now, I have to pick up a kid in five minutes. Can you come back in about 15 minutes?
15 minutes later.....doorbell Buzzes (does not ding dong like normal doorbells)
"Can you meet him now?"
"Sure.....Vinh you want to meet Phil's new dog?"
"OMG he is SOOO CAAUUUTTTEEEE.....HE IS JUST SOOO CUTE...BLAH BLAH CUTE BLAH BLAH BLAH CAAUUUTE"
"Do you want him?"
Shocked look on Cindy's face, as she thinks... fell right into this trap.
"Sure, but D will never go for it."
"Sure he will. When he came down last week he told me to talk to you."
"Why don't you want him?"
"Well, he and Beau get into mischief when I leave them alone. But they are great when I'm there." (Beau is his dog)
"Well....." I'm trying to think as I watch Vinh cuddle and hold him like a baby. Can't think Can't think......Can't think clearly....."where did you find him?"
"The A's found him."
"Did you put an ad in the paper?"
"No, I should have."
"Yes, you should have."
"Did you see if he's microchipped?"
"No, probably should have."
"YES you should have."
"What if D comes home and says, NO?"
"Bring him back. I want him, but I'd give him to someone who would let me visit him. I want him close by."
"Well, I'm going to put an ad in the paper, and I'm going to see if he's microchipped. And he'll be back to you within two hours if D says no."
"OK - bye"
I'm a sucker....
But it took him all of 30 seconds to take over our house and home.
