I am completely relaxed now. We have a dog ! Some women need a man in their life, and I think that I am the kind that needs a dog in my life. It wasn't easy to get him , but ,we are now a household of 8 legs. Getting "Noodle"challenged every driving
obstacle put in front of me. If you know me, you know that I am directionally challenged. With MapQuest in hand we started out an hour early to pick him up. First we hit one of those Florida sudden rain burst where you can't see in front of you and which lasted
two minutes. Getting off of the Interstate, I thought we were going in the wrong direction , so I turned around and went in the other direction. That was a mistake, I had been going in the right direction. Then when we almost found our destination, I used
my cell phone to call and say we got lost, but were near. No reception. Now we were really lost. It was like being in Atlanta where every street is Peach Tree. I needed 16th Court. I found 16th. Street,lane road,Avenue, but no Court. Finally, with the help
of a woman who was doing yard work, we found him. End of story is that he is a sweet Shih Tzu,10 years old(maybe) some visual impairment , but a loving Noodle. He's still sleeping, so I'll have to ask him later how he likes living with us.
