I have ‘Puppy Fever’
OMIGOSH, I just typed it out loud!!!
SOMEONE SMACK ME!
I have been saying NO! to Erik about getting a dog for about a year now. I do not know how we came up with this deal, but we said that if I got pregnant with baby 2 (Reese) that we could get a dog. Pshaaa’….. 2 Kids and a dog and then add a puppy! Are you kidding me!?
Did you read my post about the hair that drives me up the flippin’ wall? Well, you are reading from the same author. We went to McKinney Trade Days this past weekend to briskly walk through to check it out and ended up down an aisle of Puppy Galore! I was in love. I don’t know if it was the sweet smell of the puppy breath or the fur balls they look like when they are so young… or maybe it was just the look of sadness in their eyes. I was drawn in and now here I am. Puppy.Fever.
I think I held every dog they had out there. I picked up one of these fur balls and looked at Ryan and said, “Ask Daddy if we can have this one”… Erik said NO (reasons below). This is the same man who has been begging for a puppy for a while.
A little history is that Erik had a Rottweiler when we met who was getting pretty old and cranky. He was not able to move as well and you could tell he was not going to be a kid friendly dog. We made a decision to put ‘Fritz’ down before Ryan was born.. so the need to fill his spot has been open for a while. Our dog Mackie is such a sweet dog… so loving and Erik wants our new puppy to learn from her how to behave and of course give her a friend. Understandable. But he loves BIG dogs and we already have a Golden.
<oh and by the way… side note: we are becoming proud owners of a frog today. Ryan’s teacher said Ryan wanted the class frog that was up for grabs and Erik couldn’t say no, Thanks Emma!>
So what kind of dog does Erik have in mind…. because after all this will be his dog… or the kids dog but since Mackie is my dog that I brought to the marriage (she has been welcomed and adopted lovingly by Erik), its his turn to get his dog.
The English Bull Mastiff
And… The Great Dane.
Those are basically furry children if you ask me….
eek… I want one! SMACK!Pin It
