Adopting a dog is so nerve-wracking! I mean, so far everything is going super smooth but I’ve been jittery all day today. Things haven’t exactly gone as I’ve planned lately so I feel like at any moment, its all going to be pulled out from under me.
So far, I’ve filled out the app (golden), had a phone interview (flawless), sent photos of our apartment (bright and shiny), and of my work too since she’ll be coming to work with me everyday. The adoption counselor still has to call our references (friends, vet, and landlord) and “cat-test” Ruby to make sure she doesn’t flip her shit around felines. She’s going to send us a few more photos too.
I wigged out a little bit earlier and e-mailed our counselor as to whether there are any other prospects - there are not, so that eased my neurosis slightly. I just want to go get her and snuggle her and start our brand new life together. My worst fear is that we’re gonna get a call that says, “nice try, retards. you are monumentally UN-qualified to be dog owners.” Ugggghhhh…fast forward puh-lease.
