I asked Jake my old college roomie who now worked in the pet shop, “How much is that doggie in the window, the one with the watery eyes?” Jake said, “You don’t want a dog that is prone to excessive tearing, because that may end up being a problem, as you would have to constantly wipe the rheumy eyes of that built up mucus, or that nasty looking yellow-green pus. You have a roomy back yard and I just got this Vizsla in from Hungary and they are supposed to lively, gentle-mannered, and affectionate, so she would be perfect for you and you can take her along when we go hunting.
I followed Jake into the back room and he showed me the dog, but I thought that her waist looked too thin and I told Jake that I didn’t want such a skinny dog. Jake said that she would fill out once she got a real home away from the pet shop as then she would start eating better. He said that dog waste can become a nutrient for my mom’s garden, by being composted in the backyard and I was sold.
