No Puppy for us 🐶 😞

My mom decided that she wanted the puppy tested for heart worm before we decided to adopt her. I offered the woman to meet her at the appointment and pay for it while there. The woman said she “didn’t have time for all that” and that’s why she wasn’t charging for the puppies. So I had to tell her that we were going to pass.
My mom keeps telling me to keep looking for a puppy, but I’m done looking. I didn’t realize the emotional investment that went into looking for a dog.  Mom is asking me, because she doesn’t understand modern technology like I do. (Like the internet as a whole). I don’t mean to be mean when I say this, but I’ve shown her enough in the way of computer skills over the years. She can figure out how to look for a puppy if she really wants to. It’s not that hard, just go to any social media site and search “Houston Puppy”.  She knows what a search bar is, and can find one if I’m not around, but if I’m around, she’ll be like, “How do I search?”

Tuesday I finish my training for the new job, and then I shadow someone for three days.


  1. Maybe this will be what your mother needs to get over her uneasiness with the internet if she has to do that to get a puppy. Can Evita help her? I found that my son was much better helping his grandparents on the computer than any of their kids were, me included. There was a different dynamic and he had a lot more patience than I did.

  2. I hope you like your new job. The only way to learn the internet is to just jump in and do it, so good for you, throwing your mom in there. She'll probably end up talking to someone in Nigeria and losing all her money, lol.
