This dog

Oh my god. He'll be the death of us, I'm sure. (Or at least our financial ruin.) I know, I look at this face and think, "How could that precious wittle puppy wuppy get on anyone's nerves?" Cha. Right off the bat, that spot on his nose is from him neurotically trying to get out of his crate. He's crated maybe once or twice a week. Seriously. (The ear bows are just for pretty. And my, isn't he pretty?)

Yesterday he got a hold of a nearly empty Desitin tube. He chewed on in just a little before I got it away from him, but I honestly didn't think too much of it. But later, when I gave him dinner and he proceeded to blow chunks all of the kitchen floor, my heart almost stopped. I told the husband what had happened and pondered if it was all related.

I wound up calling an emergency vet since it was after hours. I explained what had happened and they told me to keep an eye on him but to bring him in if there was any more vomiting. I had a tiny breakdown and went to work, texting the husband often to make sure he was still okay. He seemed just fine, and he seems okay this morning. He finished breakfast without incident and he's running around like crazy again, stealing the babies' stuffed animals and waiting for Boobers to drop his sippy cup so he can lick the few dribbles off the end.

This is all important because it was last night that I realized that I really, really, really like this dog. He is such a pain in the ass, but man, I'm attached. The thought of him not feeling well or something worse happening just about breaks my heart. He's a good boy, and chewed tubes of butt cream or not, I love him.

He's still humping the kids though.

Haha! I hear ya! I've got a truly annoying dog that I really do l-l-l-love (ok I said it!).

ps - my dog has eaten everything under the sun...I think they have steel lined tummies!

I want a dog. :(

I can't imagine how any dog wearing those ear bows could possibly have ISSUES.

my dogs are total assholes, but the love them to death.

Kelly said...

Oh, shoosh, Keely. He really liked those bows. A lot.

You should totally get a dog, FoN. They're (mostly) worth it. ;)

Your puppy is adorable. When I see cute dogs like that, I think I want one. Luckily, I have the best of both worlds since I get to play "fetch" with my cat.

Oh, he reminds me of my dachsund, Sandy, who I gave up because I got pregnant with Lucas and became allergic to him.. :'(
