Some women feel their biological clock ticking. Some get broody wanting a baby. A woman on the radio gets what she calls "old lady baby fever". Me-I have no interest in babies or children, human ones at any rate. I have, however, been getting urges to add to my family. Everywhere I look I see dogs, and kittens, and cute things to buy for them. Many shelters are having adoption marathons and the costs are so low. I want a dog...but since mine have crossed the rainbow bridge, I've gotten comfortable with life without a dog. It's easier. Then I see the wine event where you could take your dog on a walk through the vineyard helping to raise money for a local shelter. Or I see the cutest toy as I pick up cat and rat supplies. I guess I have "old lady doggie fever". Will it pass?
