Okay, I couldn't choose just one…
There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face. ~Ben Williams
I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive. ~Gilda Radner
I wonder what goes through his mind when he sees us peeing in his water bowl. ~Penny Ward Moser
You may be wondering why I'm flooding my blog with dog quotes all the sudden. You may even be wondering why I haven't blogged in a few days. Well, my fiancee brought home my Christmas present a few days early on Tuesday. He got me a Hungarian Vizsla puppy!! We had researched and talked about getting this breed of dog after we got married, so the type of breed wasn't surprising… but seeing Pete come home with the sweetest little puppy a couple days ago was so surprising! Since then, we've been training him to go up the stairs, tell us when he needs to "eliminate" and when he's hungry. Needless to say, we've also been watching the "Dog Whisperer" marathon on the Animal Channel! He's such a good puppy… he's already about 95% house-broken and he already knows the command "sit." Look at me… I'm such a proud parent! 🙂
When I was looking for quotes for todays blog, I came across this one:
The most affectionate creature in the world is a wet dog. ~Ambrose Bierce
I know that first-hand because yesterday, little Dino went outside and apparently discovered our pond. Before we could stop him, he jumped right in! We were SO afraid because he's only 8 weeks old and we didn't know if he could swim yet, but a couple seconds after jumping in, his little happy head surfaced and we helped him out. But boy was he COLD!
Merry Christmas and enjoy these pictures of baby Dino!
