Now I do not know if you are a ‘dog person’ or not…. but if you are anything like me you probably are. Which therefore means… puppies make your heart melt. (yes baby animals and men playing guitars, you just can’t help it)
I’ve often joked about kidnapping people’s dogs, strangers or not. Since I can not currently own a dog myself, yes you guessed it, it is frowned upon by the OTC. And lets face it, you can’t really cuddle up with a fish… And so. For now. I borrow. have play dates with. and jokingly threaten to kidnap. other people’s dogs.
And I’m pleased to announce that for the week I have done just that! Getting my puppy dog fix. The house I stay at when I compete or train in Minnesota has two dogs. Loveable, wiggly, furry, cuddle monsters. You could say we hit it off. It was love at first butt wiggle. And since northern minnesota is such a ‘happening’ place…. they have slowly become my sole/soul companions.
Jasper and Cedar. My surrogate amigos.
Now I have a question… Are pets like children? Are you not allowed to have a favorite? Honestly I do not know how parents do it. Jasper and I have known each other for a while. (the love runs deep) but now there is the new puppy Cedar. And I love Jasper, but Cedar is so little and wiggly and cute. …not that Jasper isn’t cute… back and forth back and forth. Maybe I’ll understand it some day down the road when I have my own children… or pets? Maybe I should start with plants…
