Oh they ARE like having a child aren't they? I'm not so certain we have it figured out. She runs us pretty well the little beggar. They're SO hard to resist. Our "little" girl weighs in at 16 pounds which is far more than she should. She has grown much taller than a normal Pappy though, but still, she manages to weasel more food than she should get. Every time we eat, she has to as well. Certainly keeps one from snacking much, LOL. My husband caters to her and carries her around. I think he loves to show her off, she's got such a sweet little face and pleasant disposition. Wags tail at everyone! Loves kids, it's hard not to smile when she's turning on the charm. I'm sure YOU know how that is, LOL. I never knew I could love a little dog SO much!
Oh yeah, I'm totally familiar with THAT! They are smart little stinkers. Our girl will charge at a cat, knowing full well that we're going to get after her for it. She'll do the deed then immediately rush to her crate where she's sent when she does something bad like that. Sits there at the opening "smiling" at us...ugh...it's very difficult to be mad and all stern with something that durned cute n' ornery. My hubby takes her on long walks for her exercise down by our creek (we live in the country), she'll come along reluctantly and will wait till they get to the spot where he usually turns back, then whips around and heads for home at top pappy speed. He's taken to hiding in the weeds and calling to her (a favorite game) so she'll come charging back to find him thus prolonging her exercise, LOL. I'd love to see a pic of your baby. It's too funny how he's figured out not to go forward on walks. I read somewhere once that Pappy owners need to be able to outsmart their dogs or they'll outsmart YOU. LOL!
All good moms want the best for their kids! Good heredity never hurts! Ever see a movie called "Gattaca?" Premise was future generations would be judged & classified by their DNA. Those who could afford it had their children's DNA manipulated so they could be part of the "Superior class." Point of film was that one's DNA/IQ doesn't measure creativity, passion or ambition, the qualities everyone needs for success. Always liked that message! ;3
Heer wun fur yew: The Mouse on the Barroom Floor Some Guinness was spilled on the barroom floor when the pub was shut for the night. Out of his hole crept a wee brown mouse and stood in the pale moonlight. He lapped up the frothy brew from the floor, then back on his haunches he sat. And all night long you could hear him roar, 'Bring on the g@d**m cat!'
Tell them no way are the allowed to have kids with a spouse who has brown eyes! That will TOTALLY wreck the genetics! If I remember correctly, brown eyes tend to dominate & would hate to lose the gold flecked hazel eyes. I guess any time you have kids, it's kind of a genetic crap-shoot. We joke that with any luck, our daughter's future offspring will be swimming in the "good end of the gene pool!" ;3
