so i'm a dog person, whatyagonnado?



this afternoon, i had one of those {out of body} experiences.

*i was watching myself cuddle {yes, cuddle} my pet, mr. miyagi.

*i watched myself rub his ears & enjoy a brief session of fetch.

*i watched myself give the little guy a full-on pep talk about how it's okay that the groomers had to shave his ears....

"it'll grow back buddy-it's only hair," i encouraged in obnoxious baby talk.

*i was witnessing myself, treating my dog, like a small furry person.

upon viewing this scene, my highly confused out-of-body-self thought:
"who is that, where did she come from, and what did she do with angie?"

and it was then, that i realized.

i am a dog person.

i love my dog.

i love him when he's shaggy and raggamuffin-esque.
and i love him most when he's buzzed & looks like a hyper asian kitten.

huh.
never thought i'd {really} admit it.
after 7 long years of cursing his existence, i truly can say, i'm grateful for the little yipper.

ahaha i love this.

my dog is talked to like a person as well. in fact, that's why we got him. to keep my company while jess was at work. how do they become members of the family? it's a bit embarrassing sometimes.

I love my beagle, despite his faults... though I am not really a dog person.

BTW... the extra jars from Kayola's (to match your others) are at my house for safekeeping. Didn't want to get them boxed up and hauled away. SO if you in the neighborhood... let me know.

This is why I don't want a dog...I think I might love it.

I love that you said raggamuffin!! I heart that word and use it daily... mostly referring to my kids!! I have tried to be a dog person. I'm not. Well, I am not a big dog person. Maybe a little one.

oh so darling... ps I have that same conversation with myself. After 2 years with my beloved Petcharoo. I still wonder what happened to that girl who thinks animals are stinky and who would NEVER pick up poo or let a dog sleep in her bed. Gross! I hear myself saying "I wub you so much"... ha ha ha. crap.

Oh, now that's just cute.

Some day, we too will have a dog. If it comes sooner than "some day", it will necessarily come pre-trained. ;)
