The Cuteness...It Burns

It really is dangerous for me to walk into a pet store. I have a very soft heart when it comes to animals, and I have a very hard time saying no. It's even worse when it's one of my favorite breeds like a Boston, a Lab or a Boxer. So, it was VERY hard to walk away from this little girl early this evening.

Those eyes. Those ears. Those legs that go every which way. She was so soft and wrinkly. It was really too much for one man to bear. The only thing preventing me from bringing her home tonight was The Menagerie that would be waiting for me when we arrived home tapping their paws with disgusted looks on their faces implying that we had lost our ever loving minds. That and the vet bill that I had to pay yesterday for the Yakmaster 5000 who is off his feed again and had to go in for a work up to find out if it's serious or just garden variety finicky feline syndrome.

I did get The Queen to agree that, when we are ready, a little Boxer lady will be our next addition to The Kingdom's zoo.


  1. Something tells me that, that cute little puppy wouldn't be so little very long...

    when she grew into those feet and legs it would take a very good income to afford to feed her...LOL

    Just saying.

    she is a cutie though...

  2. Mr. Daddy, you are probably right, but you don't know the half of it. Our pet food bill easily runs $150 per month between the 2 cats and 3 dogs.

  3. It's a good thing you're going to law school. In a few years you'll be able to afford to feed the menagarie. :)

  4. GunDiva, with a little advanced planning and good budgeting skills, you too can afford a Menagerie this size.

  5. Nj wants some sort of Boxer dog. Or maybe it's a bulldog. Okay, he wants a dog that starts with the letter B. He can't have one until he's mature enough to take care of it on his own. Yes, I know he's technically a grown-up, but he doesn't act it.

    The Etsy link for the "special" koozie is http://www.etsy.com/listing/69775413/boob-koozie. It's $15. It would be cheaper but putting a nip on a crocheted boob isn't as easy as you'd think.
