WHO could resist this!?!
I love dogs. I grew up with dogs (Honey, Bj and then Bucky). Marathon Man and I had Bob and we have Rita, who's almost 15!. But for the past year or so I've been thinking about taking a break from dogs (after Rita goes - hard to even think about it)...right...
Yesterday we spent the afternoon with 6 Vizsla puppies (7.5 weeks old). One of them will be coming home with us in a couple of weeks (yikes!). It's been a long time since we've had a baby, of any kind, in our house. This is a huge decision that I've decided to embrace, not because I have to (Marathon Man and the girls were very persuasive) but because I want to.
Right now all we know is that we're getting a male (from a litter of 2 females and 4 males). I'm hoping that he'll be sweet like Bob was and smart like Rita is. Not that Bob wasn't smart - but the eating toilet paper off the roll thing always kept us guessing?
We're all very excited, especially Marathon Man - happy that there'll be some more testosterone in the house (always trying to level the playing field, lol!?!).
