It is great to experience events in your life when you get to meet people who are not only great people, but are also dog lovers like you.
I had the opportunity to experience this in my home in Anniston, when I encountered a plumbing problem in our master bedroom’s toilet. Somehow, the flush got too loose that the water won’t stop running. At first I did not give it much thought, thinking that it won’t lead to any further harm. However, when I received the monthly water bill, I was shocked to see I had to pay triple the usual amount we pay. I tried to think of an increase in our water usage, but everyone at home say that they have been spending water at a normal rate.
Having great value for money and because my wife implements a household budget, I decided to contact a plumber in Anniston via the yellow pages to put an end to the problem with the toilet in our bedroom.
What started as a day filled with negative vibes and regret for spending more money than necessary, turned into a fun-filled and memorable day, all because the plumber that was sent to fix our toilet, brought along his adorable pet dog.
When I asked him in, he informed me of the situation, saying he had no choice but to bring his dog along for the emergency call I made, because his son was at a friend’s house. When I saw how adorable his pet was, the gloomy frown I had been wearing since I got the bill turned into a happy smile. I told him that it was more than okay that the dog was with him. I also told him that I have dogs of my own and decided that while he fixes the problem with the toilet, I would take his dog to meet my dogs.
At first, my dogs were being territorial and the plumber’s dog was quiet but wary. Despite that, they were still a pretty sight to see – dogs being dogs but at the same time, showing that they are trained enough to not do any mess.
After a while my dogs and the plumber’s dog were soon sniffing each other out but still maintained being good boys. I gave them treats, too.
When the plumber was done, I asked him to stay for a little while longer to have a few drinks and talk about what the plumbing problem was, and of course, we also talked about dogs.
