Parker gets a puppy...


For Parker, Christmas came a little early.

For the past year, I have heard puppy, puppy, puppy, and today we purchased a Christmas pooch… a schnauzer named Sophocles.

Actually, I started looking a little early because I wanted to find the right price and find the right price I did. I bought Sophee (pronounced Sof-ee) from a schnauzer breeder in South Georgia. Most purebred, registered schnauzer pups are around $500 but we got him for $300 because Uncle Fe also purchased a pup, Chiroc.

Interesting to see how this will play out… I grew up in the country so dogs and cats were always a part of my life. So much so that I grew to dislike pets a great deal. I actually said I would never have pets, especially house pets, but here I am living with two (my cat Aristotle has been here for FOUR years now if you can believe it.) Parker, on the other end, because of his father’s line of work (politician, remember) could not have pets so for him a puppy has been something he has always longed for. Again, I guess we’ll see how this all plays out. Pictures and updates are forthcoming…

And for the record, I am no longer allowed to mention Parker after this blog... We are together and doing well...

No - you're not allowed to mention him? You need to let him know that we are living vicariously through you guys! We need you to mention him - we love you two and we get strength from your stories....This isn't just your relationship, ya know...it's all of ours!

Anyway - eff the freaking puppy. I'm mad - lol.

No for real - cute puppy!

Hmm . . . .

No longer allowed, or did you two come to an understanding/arrangement that you wouldn't mention him. Funny how we all read the entire post and focusing on the last sentence. LOL!

Anyways,
I've always had some type of animal growing up. As an adult I've never wanted one, but low and behold. Once you have kids, your needs and wants somewhat go out the window. I've had cats, rats, and gerbles. They've wanted dogs, guinea pigs and snakes (You have to put your foot down at some point).

Enjoy Aristotle and Sophee. Keep us posted.

LOL, when you would mention your lover I had a feeling that you and Parker had worked out some ground rules about not mentioning him on the blog anymore :) Whatever it takes, baby!

It must be the season for getting new pets! I got my first pet two weeks ago, a little kitten that I named Obi, after Barack Obama! I have never been a pet person, but I fall more in love with that little kitty every day :)
