Listening to my gut again, dh is gonna kill me?!
Well I had a woman who emailed me around xmas time about a puppy for her mother. Spoke to the mother, she came out and visited, even brought her vet with her as they are friends. Apparently the woman is well off, paid alot of money to save her dog after it was attacked by a gator when at her sisters house.
Well, something kept bugging me. When I first spoke, she was adament on 2 pups. Talked her into only 1 pup as did her vet. Then she became fixed on color. When I didn't have any the gender she wanted, she switched over to a male. Ok, but still fixed on the male of the "right" color. Then I find out when I'm talking to her, she's still considering 2 pups, PLUS someone was giving her a 6 month old rottie. Hmmmmm...... well I went to training a couple weeks ago, apparently the woman is still looking for a solid black female, then I find out she didn't get the rottie, but then adopted a 3 yr old adult male shepherd. Well all my warning bells went off.
So I emailed her today asking for her mailing address (don't feel like digging it out) so I can send her back her deposit. I know she can afford the care, I know she has caretakers for her property when she's not there, but the collecting dogs thing had red flags and bells all over it. DH doesn't know, and I probably won't tell him either. But ever time I've NOT listened to my gut (twice) I came to regret it.
So this time I decided to follow my gut and so be it.
