We decided to get Shasta. She is really the best fit for us. Arnold (the boy) is a great boy and wins on the the sad story. But he's a bit more iffy on the cat front. Where Shasta was lying on the floor getting her belly rubbed as a kitty snuggled with her head. And she didn't react at all. She will just fit into our lives a lot better. So since Arnold is at the Berkeley Shelter that I just started volunteering at.. I will just have to help him find a great home.
So excited! I've wanted a dog for many years.
Oh and I sold the yarn from the post.
