That lady with the dane called while I was gone and she wants me to come pick up the dog. My problem is Brad keeps on saying no. And he's not here at the moment and he doesn't know she called. I want the dog so bad. What do I do? I think the least Brad could do is give it a few days here and sees if it works out. Don't y'all agree? Help!!!
Personally, I would never go against my husbands wishes to get a dog. If he agreed to try it out, and it wouldnt effect the dogs ability to be adopted by another, I would go for it. I could see it causing tension between a couple though otherwise...which is good for no one. Just my opinion. Good luck though on getting him to see your way!! =)
I would go get the dog and tell Brad that the lady was going to bring him to the animal shelter so you had to take him until you located the owner. Continue to look for the owner but if you can't find him/her just say, Well what do you want me to do? Ill bring him to the shelter if thats what you really want (hopefully he wont agree). Good Luck!!!!!!
My main problem is that i don't want someone that doesn't know anything about danes to get the dog because it is free. Brad even said that he wanted another dog but he doesn't know if he wants one now. Plus its our 4th anniversary and it would be a good present.
Go get him! If he gets mad just cry and say Oscar and (daughter) thought it would be a really nice surprise for you, but I guess it wasn't! Make it seem like you thought he would be happy. Add in how the lady was not able to care for him anymore so she was going to bring him to a shelter. When are you supposed to pick him up?
I would either go pick him up today or tomorrow. We only have one car right now because mine is at my moms. So I would have to wait for Brad to get home. I have a friend that lives in a near by town that also has a dane but she also has five other dogs too. But she told me that if it didn't work out here she would take him until we could find him a home. I'll probably go pick him up, hopefully. Wish me luck for when Brad gets home.
Good Luck, I hope you get him! =0) I know it's easy for me to say because I am not married but it is about compromise...and just because he says 'No' does not mean that's the final answer. Ask Oscar and your daughter...majority rules. =0) jk. Good Luck though!
I would never go get a dog hoping my husband would come around in a few days. That could back-fire big time. I would give this more thought and at least talk to him saying that the lady called, and you can have the dog.
Since you said you have to wait until Brad comes home to even get the pup because you don't have a car, I would talk about it with him then. Maybe suggest fostering the dog. Say to Brad that the lady is going to take it to the shelter, and that you don't want that to happen. Say that you would really like to at least foster the dog until you find a home for it. Tell him that would be a fair compromise, because then you get to make sure the dog finds a good home, and if he doesn't want the dog, you are just fostering it anyway. Then, when you get the dog, see if Brad likes it. Continue with your commitment to find a home for the dog. Maybe after a few days tell Brad that if he likes the dog, you would really like to keep it, but if he doesn't you understand. Maybe being with the dog a few days he might change his mind. But if he doesn't, then I would respect that. Good luck with everything! I wish it was in my state, I would take it! lol.
Update............ My friend went and picked the dog up. She said that he is so pretty and she is positive that he is a full blooded dane. And he is a blue merle. Brad said yesterday that he wanted to see the dog and told her to bring it to our house and see if Oscar likes him. So later today she is coming with the dog. I can't wait to see him. I hope brad then changes his mind. We might keep him over the weekend just to see how he does here. My friend is planning on taking him Tuesday to get him fixed and his shots though and if neither of us take him she wants to be paid back for the vet bills and the place she takes the dogs only charges like 60 bucks for all of that. I do know of one person that would take the dog. They are a really nice family. The husband is a preacher and he had a Dane but someone stole him. Sad. So I figured that since they have had danes then they might want this boy. I'll keep updating.
Missed the beginning of this story. See if the preacher's "stolen" dog is the same one before you get it fixed? Sometimes a dog runs off & seems stolen. Or folk take it, realise how much it is to keep, then dump it.
