Our (Temporary) New "Baby"

Rob and I love dogs. They turn us into complete putty, with no willpower to say no.

I guess I shouldn't be too hard on us-- Who could say no to this face?

Now, before I give my parents a complete heart attack-- This little guy is not ours. WE ARE NOT KEEPING HIM!! Every Spring, my theatre has a Gala with a live auction and one of our auction items is a puppy. At eight weeks, this little guy was ready to leave his Mama, but there are still three weeks before the event. So we're his foster family, until he finds his new home.

He's so precious and tubby-- Tate & Chloe (our two dogs) don't know what to think about him! He just kind of waddles around, stopping every so often to pee on our floor. He's a sweet dog with a good personality, but we certainly had forgotten how much work a young puppy is!

I'm sure it's like childbirth and parenting an infant-- obviously people forget how difficult, painful, etc it is, or else no one would have more than one!!

Rob and I have constantly taken in dogs (remember Sophie?) and have drooled over puppies at the Humane Society, but now that Baby Blakely's on the way, I don't feel the need to keep every dog we see. Thank God, we have a full house as it is.

But for the next few weeks... isn't he sweet?


  1. Um, how are you going to give him back? I don't think I could ever part with that adorable face!

  2. So adorable! I miss those puppy stages, but they are so much work.

  3. AAAAH!!! That sleepy liddle face! I want to snuggle him so much!!

    LG suggested a few weeks ago that we get another puppy to take our minds off TTC (Keep in mind: 2 people, 1 dog, trying for a baby, living in 850 sq feet). I told him if we're still not knocked up in a year, he's on.

    Meanwhile, your bump pic is ADORABLE! How dare you be ashamed. You're so freaking cute.

  4. OMG!!! I will bid on him, send him my way! Oh he is too sweet. I could never do a foster with pets because I couldn't let any of them go!

  5. Oh he is adorable! He looks like the toilet paper puppy!
