My hubby and I have been together for 21 years. We have been married for fifteen! So, when he asked me what I might want for our big one-five anniversary he threw out some suggestions - a trip to a tropical beach, a diamond, etc...
"I want a puppy!" I said, sounding like a six-year-old.
"A puppy????" he asked surprisingly.
"Yes! A puppy!"
"Hmmm... A puppy? Really?" he questioned one more time as he scrunched up his nose.
Then he said, "Are you sure you don't want a diamond? It would be WAAAAYY easier!"
So, I researched and found the place! We put a deposit down in December. Then, we waited. We waited some more. I have never been one for waiting.
Then! Yesterday! Was! The! Day! We got to bring our new girl home!!
Here is a synopsis of life according to Shay!
"Um, hello. My name is Shay, I guess..."
"Wait! Where am I going?"
"This kid's nice but really, where am I going?"
"Wait! Why are we moving?"
"Ok, this motion actualllllyyy feeeeeelllsss niiicccee..." zzzzz....
"WHAT IN THE HECK?"
"Um, well... Ok..."
"Hey kid, could you please put me down?"
"This one seems nice!"
"Tug of war is TOTALLY fun!"
"Excuse me lady. Could you please stop laughing and put the camera down and um, I don't know... GET ME OUT OF THESE BARS!"
"Whaaattt? I'm a dog. We get dirty. Oh, and please do not put me back in that God forsaken sink. Seriously, I mean it!"
"I. LOVE. THIS. BONE. Yum! Yum!Yum!"
"AHHHHHH!!!! What the HECK is that?"
"Got it! Weeee!"
"Man! This all so tiring..."
"A little to the left, please."
"Ok, I seriously looovvvveee this guy..."
"Alright Stan from the "oh-so-special" Disney Channel.
Looks like you are not the only dog with a blog. Because I made up my mind today. I'm officially staying with these people which gives me total access to my own blog."
As for me, I love her! We all do! She fills the silence that my beloved King left behind.
The only thing is, my hubby was right for the 100,000 time in our fifteen years of wedded bliss. A diamond would have been easier!
