Being his benefactor's only pet is also a good option.

Oh how I wish I could come and meet Enya. She could romp with me in my fenced in yard and my long farmers porch is wonderful for sunning or shading ourselves. My Mistress Mama takes me for walks at the Plaza 4 times a week in the early evening hours and my Mister Papa likes to walk me down the trail along Willow Lake and up to the Dells to climb on the rocks. Then one day a week they take me to the dog park on Willow Creek. If there was vet $ help for us, (my Mama is disabled and Papa works for the state, so his income is very low) Maybe we could work something out. I am a mellow Beagle/Shepard mix. I am very friendly and also docile enough that even frightened dogs warm up to me quickly. Just a thought. P.S. I also play with Martha my two and a half year old cat.
