As Kat says all the time… Guess what ya’ll…(Love ya girl)
We adopted a 9 month old puppy. Easiest pregnancy I ever had. I’ll be honest, I really did not want a pooch. Two woman in our household, including myself, we’ve got plenty of bitch going on.
My daughter and I collect the newspaper and once a month when I go to the mall to pay bills and window shop for things that I can’t have, we make a detour to the local animal shelter. Check with your local shelter, as most, I’m sure offer a wish list. Recycling of newspaper only costs your time for dropping it off. Our shelter exists because of the support it gets from the community.
Last time, as much as I love doggies, I didn’t find one that I knew was the one. Then we went last week and it was puppy love for me. Her name was Beasel. I couldn’t remember that name as I kept calling her Bea Arthur, Bertha, Bacon Bits, Beta Machine and Bah Humbug. I decided to name her something more suitable that I would not forget. “Martini” is what came to mind. This makes for great fun when calling out her name any time of the day.
“CC” was a close second as I had to pay for her with my handy dandy credit card. I will be honest. Economically speaking made no “cents” to get her. Seeing her face makes all the “sense” in the world to me though. To our family, she makes our lives complete.
It was very uncomfortable introducing her to our 5 year old cat, Oreo. Martini is still in puppy mode, as Oreo doesn’t want anyone talking to her until her first cup of morning coffee. That’s how I roll myself. They are into nose kisses now.
I’m still waiting for the brand name “Java Juice Toilet Paper.” Don’t even think about telling me to switch to decaf, that’s unheard of.
Martini’s mostly housebroken, but still being new needs a constant eye on her and many trips outside. There she was on the tiled dining room floor, squatting and low and behold, eye of the poop monster was lurking. I caught her after Mr. Poop Monster made contact on Mr. Tile and I quickly grabbed her by the collar and out the door. Nothing like making the pooch pinch one off.
So my love affair with Mr. Clean is back on. 3 Pees and 2 poops on the carpet, If I”m gonna be on my knees, this isn’t my first choice. Burl’s looking for my Tim Conway button right now LOL.
We think she’s gonna be a good dog. All they want is to be loved. I wish she’d not love my feet and eat my socks though. We already have a sock monster in the washer/dryer, now we got 2!
