Good Morning! Happy Monday. Hope you are off to a good start!
As you know, we are in Jacksonville for the Ravens v. Jags game tonight!! Sooooo this post is going to be short & sweet. I will be back to my regular blogging later this week- I’ve just been enjoying time with my parents & being DISCONNECTED! It’s SO nice taking a break from technology. I mean I love it & all, but sometimes you really just need a break!
Anyways, on Saturday my Mom & I went to the mall & did some shopping. Well while I was there I remembered that The Avenues mall also has a pet store inside of it. There is no way that I can walk by without going to look at all of the puppies..they are just too cute! (Even though I think it’s terrible how they have them pinned up in little crates😦 It kind of breaks my heart..and I want to take all of them home! )
(plesae excuse the bad quality of these pictures…they were from my phone)
How cute is he?!? He looks kind of yellow because the poor thing needed a bath. (another reason why I hate those puppy stores)
I was this close to buying him. I’m not even lying. He was $900, which of course is really expensive, but honestly the kind of dog that Craig wants to get (that was like my dog growing up that he fell in love with) is anywhere from $1500- $2500!! (the type of dog is a Maltese) So I really didn’t think that was too bad.
I really wish that we could adopt a dog, but with Craig’s allergies, we can only get a hypoallergenic dog. (which are the dogs whose hair grows..and they don’t shed- like a Maltese or Bichon frise)
Needless to say, I did not buy him…but I really wanted to. The only reason that I didn’t was because my Mom told me that buying a dog is something that we BOTH really need to be involved in. Which I agree, but I really just need a need to bring a dog home one day because I know for a fact Craig will fall in love with it…especially if it look similar to the dog I had growing up…because he loved that dog so much!
I have never been without an animal in my life for so long, I’m just not used to it. Growing up we always had a ton of pets- at least 2 dogs & 3 cats..all at the same time. I just love animals. Craig never had a pet growing up (well I think he had a hamster..but that doesn’t really count ), so he’s kind of leary about owning our own pet. I also realize it’s a lot of responsibility..but we are at a point in our lives where it’s a good time to get one. We are home every night (we are not partiers…the closer it gets to 8pm each night, the sleepier I get ), we do not have kids (yet.), and I just think it would add a nice little addition to our family.
Well that was kind of a ramble..oops! I intended for this to be ‘short & sweet’- guess it got a little longer than anticipated.
I am off to study for my Series 65 before we head down to tailgate for the game. I also need to get my workout in too…so I best get moving!!😀
If you are in the area, or going to the game tonight- let me know- we can root on the Ravens together!!
Questions for you:
1. Do you own a pet? If so, what kind? If not, do you want a pet?
2. What is your favorite kind of dog?
3. Do you love all of these ‘mixed breeds?’ (like goldendoodles <– LOVE those, but too big for Craig..he wants a little dog; or Havachon’s, or Labordoodles)
