I was out picking up some Christmas presents for The Wonderdog at Petsmart yesterday and they had a couple of dogs from a local, n0-kill facility. Just too cute and a good thing that the husband was unavailable. As I was walking around the store, though, I saw the most adorable dachshund. She was just the sweetest thing and I really wanted to bring her home.
Snippet of conversation....
Me: "I want the dachshund."
Her: "Mom, that's a felony."
Me: "I really, really want the dachshund."
Her: "You could grab it and run."
Me: "I could?"
Her: "It's still a felony. But that rather big dog you could adopt."
