Ladies Man

Yesterday we went for a Sunday afternoon drive in the country to a beautiful farm in Leipers Fork, Tennessee, that is owned by one of the hubby’s clients. The lovely Miss Connie, who works for the client and who I have heard about for years, was our hostess. She had made a a big batch of two kinds of cookies, plus the best strawberry jello Cool Whip concoction ever. How is it that I have made it to 39 years of age without ever having that stuff?

Besides the horses and ponies and barn cats, the big draw was the farm’s newest residents: two adorable 9-week-old Corgis. Little girls and puppies go together like Dora and Boots, like Captain and Tenille, like Jack and Coke.

Repeat after me, “We will not get another dog. We will not get another dog. We will not get another dog.”

Puppies, especially, are a lot of work, and not merely cute photo props. Not to mention the fact that we have a psycho old biddy dog who would probably pee in the puppy chow. She is the queen bitch of our house and her glorious reign of supreme psycho bitchiness will not be undermined by some sassy young stud who already knows his way with the ladies.

    Oh so cute! Our dog is older now and I dread getting another. But hubs will need a replacement, so it’s not even a question.

    I’ve been pinning after another dog lately. But I remind myself of the additional mess and hassle and expense another mouth to feed is. When the other three animals…er…family members in my house decide to clean up after themselves, maybe I’ll revisit it.

    Wow that’s a puppy? I thought they were smaller! I have never had a pet before so am pet uneducated!

    Hannah has been begging for a puppy just about ever since she could beg. We’ve said no up until this point, but I have the feeling that a dog is in our future at some point. Not anytime soon though – at least not until she fully understands what a puppy is and isn’t. And that it grows up into a dog. 🙂

    I seem to have picked up a fourth (AAGH!) as I have been dog-sitting for my friend who moved and her dog found her way-2 miles- to my house to break in through my screen door. They had 2 and the other was adopted out and she is so lonely. But I really don’t want four.
