|I'm going to be retiring from corporate America very soon. I lost my Standard Poodle, Bert, April 20 and his brother Jan. 16 2005. I really want to adopt a couple doggies.
I'm seriously thinking of adopting 2 mini poodles. Must be poodles due to my allergies. Since I'll be retired April 1 of this year I'll have a lot of time at home and for adventures with the doggies. I'm wondering what sort of experiences you all have had with adoption. Things, unknowns, I should be aware of. Unintended consequences and unexpected joys.
This weekend I'm going to an "Adopt-a-thon" at the Franciscan Retreat here in Phoenix. I just want to test the waters. It's a very happy, robust, vibrant event for the adoptables and those seeking pets/companions.
Appreciative of any insight you can pass along!
