WOOOOOT!!!! My application for Winry is officially submitted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have been waiting so long for this day....er...night.
It took a lot of convincing, an official dog care contract, and sincere cover letter to get my parents to say "okay" but it will all be worth it in a few short weeks!
There is a notice on their site about how applications may not be responded to before January first, but I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope one of the volunteers isn't too busy :). It sure would make my holiday!
As for my Christmas in general, it was pretty nice. I got most of the things I asked for, including a year long subscription to Celebrating Greyhounds magazine, and my new favorite game, Bananagrams. Winry even got a few presents to share with Niles, namely a pack of three tough multi fabric dog toys with squeakers, and a gift card of her very own from my roommate and good friend Chesska :). She also still has that gift card to the yuppy puppy pet boutique, come to think of it. Huh. Funny how there is a homeless dog out there that already has all these things ^_^ I can't wait to meet her.
The current (?) dogs on the petfinder site that could potentially be Winry that I like:
However, the site hasn't been updated in quite a while, so it's hard to tell if any of these dogs are still potential candidates. Still, it will be good to have a few names in mind, should any of these gals still be homeless :).
Anyway, off to try and sleep for now, but I'm sure as I acquire new information and updates, my blog and all of you readers will hear of it right away!
