There's this nasty rumor that has circulated which I feel must be addressed. It has something to do with after becoming a parent, the obsession with your furry friends will fade. Well, I thought I'd take my mind off our nonexistent court date to pay tribute to two of the most spoiled pups on earth. The little Whippet is named Scarlett (O'Hara - Gone with the Wind, she's very fast and has a very similar personality...all spunk). The Greyhound goddess is named Annabelle aka Big Baby. She's a southern belle, born in the South, and raced there and in Mexico. At 3 years old, she is taking her retirement VERY seriously. When she cries, I believe it is equivalent to a unicorn dying...for she is the only pure soul (sorry Baloo, after the Animal Control incident you officially lost your title). Therefore, we obviously try to avoid Annabelle crying at all possible costs. I was forced to reprimand our friend Bryan (an animal lover and self proclaimed lurker on this blog) this week when I felt he just wasn't making her feel special enough. No one puts Big Baby in the corner.
We just got home from the dog park and now it's time for their spa treatments...long luxurious spa treatments. Seriously, people act like I won't have the time after our actual baby gets here to spend full days making sure all of their emotional needs are being constantly attended to, those people are just crazy. :P
