Things I Said Would Never Happen If I Had A Dog...

Yep, that's my new pup.

We took her in a little over a month ago after her family put up an ad to re-home her on Craigslist. It's been a tough few weeks with all of us trying to get used to each others habits but she's been great. Thank gawd.

Since bringing her into our lives I've actually noticed I've started to do those things that I swore would never ever happen if I had a dog.

Ha, what a fool.

Believe me, I'm eating my words.

I'd sworn "I'd never..." but am totally doing:
  • Let the dog on the couch. (she's only allowed to lay on it if her blanket is down first)
  • Buy "special" dog for delicate a puppy stomach.
  • Spend tons of money on grooming supplies and flea control.
  • Feed it teeny bits of my people food.
  • Sleep in my bed, under my covers, between the hubs and I.
  • Feel guilty whenever I have to leave her for work.
      and lastly
  • Talk to it in baby talk.
I know, I the mighty have fallen. But I mean, who wouldn't for that cute little face and one blue eye.


  1. I've done all of those. I don't want to go into detail. It's embarrassing.

    Oh well.

    At least I'm not the only one!

  2. Haha, I totally understand. The cats are allowed to sleep in bed, I talk to them in a really weird way, I share my pudding with them....Your dog is so cute!

  3. I am so utterly jealous of this! I've been wanting a pup for years now but Luke and I's days are too long away from home :(
    so happy you found him!!
    and that you do all of those things haha

  4. I do all of these! He is my baby. :)

  5. We totally do all those things too. They become family!!

  6. So cute.
    I had a Sharpei who's hair made me itch, he was a fatty and wouldn't accept anything less than snuggling with me in bed.
