Sometimes I meet a dog, and I expect him to be something he is not.
I am very guilty of finding black dogs with white feet, for example. Guilty, because I unfairly hope that if they look like my dog they will also act like my dog.
Every now and then I find a dog that Josh is interested in as well. Together, two or three times, we have gone to meet these dogs.
Over the weekend, we got to meet Sinatra.
Although this dog is gorgeous, good with other dogs, a cuddler and as cute as they come, we knew right away he would not be our dog.
The thing is, Sinatra’s appearance reminds us of another pitbull we know, and we secretly hoped he would act like that dog.
Although I would love to run with Sinatra and teach him all kinds of tricks, he has a little too much spunk for us.
Ace needs a mellow companion. And the hoomans and cats would also prefer a dog with an energy level equal to or less than Ace’s.
As much as we deserve the right dog for us, Sinatra also deserves the right home.
Frankly, we have extremely high, possibly unrealistic expectations for our second dog.
Sinatra loves to swim and run. He gets along with dogs big and small. With proper leadership, he’d likely do just fine with cats. His foster owner says he loves kids. And after meeting him, I can tell he would be an easy dog to train. And he loves to play fetch!
There is so much to love about this boy. He has so much potential.
And look at this face!
Oh, Sinatra, “Can’t take my eyes off of you.”
Sinatra is up for adoption with the F-M Humane Society in Fargo, N.D.
