This World is Going to the Dogs it is….

by Lisa Donovan

SO, we are desperetley trying to figure out how to get our dogs home, to Nashville, from my parents house in Florida.  They have been living here for a year now - we had a very small, third floor apartment that our eldest dog (12 years old) Jackson couldn’t take anymore.. It was too small for his big Catahoula Hound Dog body AND the stairs were more than he could take.  So, they have been vacationing in Florida for awhile and, now it is time to take them home.  I’ll admit, having two less creatures to care for has been less stressful, but seeing them this week has reminded all of us - kids included - that they are just as much a part of the family as we are.  We miss them. 

We miss them so much that we are moving up our plans to buy a car sooner - sooner being today or tomorrow.  So now, part of our no-hassle, stress free vacation (our first one ever) is being usurped by the ickiness of car lots and car salesmen.  We just can’t fit into our little Toyota Echo anymore as it is - there is physically no possible way to fit two dogs into that equation.  I have never been a fan of haggling and playing the whole “deal-making” game.. That doesn’t mean I am not good at it, I actually pride myself in not being a pushover for these types of business deals.. But, I still don’t find any joy or excitement in it… It makes me wonder why people can’t just cut to the chase and make you an offer that is genuine and good for both parties.. I completely understand that people have to make money - I wouldn’t begrudge someone for that.. But, come on, spare me the schpeal about how you are going to treat me as if I was your own daughter while you are simulteanously sticking it to me with hidden fees and enormously high interests rates..  It should be interesting, if anything.  Swindlers, here I come!
