You May Think You've Seen Cute Puppies Before But Take a Look at This Guy

schnauzer mix dog

My husband said I was going to put this photo in my blog this morning. I don't know how he knew that. It wasn't my intention when I shot it. But this dog is just such a cute little thing. He's about 5 months old. My husband knows me so well. Yeah, I gotta share this photo. It's just too adorable. He is a schnauzer mix, maybe with chihuahua. I love dogs who are not purebreds because they are so unique. Not another like them, for the most part. But I love all dogs, big ones, small ones and those in between, purebred or not.

As a Sacramento short sale agent, I cannot have a dog. I am not home enough. It would not be fair to the dog. Cats yes, but not a dog. Plus, I have enough responsibility in my life. My short sales. They are pretty much all consuming and eat up most of my time and energy. When I am up at 5 AM, it's to write a blog, not to walk the dog. Certainly not to walk the dog in the rain. Every time it rains I am thankful I do not have a dog.

My neighbor across the street has dogs, and I can play with them. Plus, as I so often tell my clients, I am not at their house to list a short sale. I am there to interact with their pets. You can't have enough pets in your life. And you can't pet enough of them.

Unfortunately, this does not stop the occasional hate mail I get about selling a home with pets. People just don't get it. They think I am against having pets in your home, which is the furthest thing from the truth. I just want your house to sell. Not everybody shares my feelings and your sentiments about pets. Those who don't can sabotage your sale.

When I retire, I will let a dog adopt me.
