Let’s be honest.
If we had a canine in the house, and we don’t………yet……. I would become Claude Rains.
Jennifer wants a dog.
I wouldn’t mind a dog.
At the moment, a dog just isn’t as high on my wish list.
And if we get a dog, here’s the hierarchy list:
THE ENTERTAINMENT CENTER
You get the picture.
I might as well build a doghouse outside for me, with reading lamp and magazines.
I asked Jennifer today how badly she does, indeed, want a dog.
Here was her e-mail reply:
How badly do I want a dog...
In any spare moment I have to think, I am constantly thinking about good dog names. Not just "how does Fluffy sound" but it has to go well with our last name. So, Fluffy Fischer would not be an option. And of course there is the middle name to consider as well.
I have a "The Dog" mouse pad at work. You know the kind of photos, with the bubble lens that makes their noses look bigger than their bodies.
I tell my friends and coworkers that I want fur for my birthday and if my husband gives me a coat, I will kill him.
I have pictured in my mind where the dog dishes can go in the kitchen and how they will look.
I have planned a puppy shower and "adoption" announcements.
I intend to get a separate photo card for our digital camera just for dog pictures.
If friends have dogs and children I ask about the dogs first.
Does that start to give you an idea?
Uhh, yes dear.
Jennifer often accuses me of not blogging enough about dogs.
So here goes.
I just pray she doesn’t see this.
