I’m only a few days away from seeing Puffin again (I’ve talked about her here and here). I’m getting really excited! I think it’s kind of nice to be able to see her two different times. That way I can get a better idea of her personality.
I’ve narrowed it down to the following names (including the meanings):
Angelina (Angie) – messenger
Faline (Falina) – cat like
Sophie – wisdom
Zoe – life
I’m leaning towards Faline. That was the name of Bambi’s girlfriend (Bambi was my favorite movie as a kid). I think it fits her. She’s quite a bit like a deer if you think of it: long legs, delicate face, long back, similar color, big brown eyes….
I think I’ll keep all four in mind when I go see her. There’s a big difference between looking at a picture (or going from memory) and being able to see her in person.
I’ll be just heartbroken if she doesn’t work out with Puffin. It was really hard when I picked Gar, and then she didn’t work out. After I picked her, I then had to wait two weeks for her to get spayed, and then another two weeks in foster care, only to find out that she couldn’t be an only dog. I strongly believe that everything happens for a reason, but that didn’t make it any easier when I went from the huge high of “I’m getting a dog!” to the sudden crash of “no I’m not”.
It will probably work out fine with Puffin, but after what happened with Gar, I’m a little bit scared I guess. I want to be just totally excited and that happy kind of nervous, but part of me is trying to stay reserved. 99% of adopters don’t have to go through what I went through. Most of the time they pick a dog and then are able to take that dog home in a week or two. But I just had to be a special case. 😛
My apointment is 10am on saturday. That seems like a long time right now.
