Meet LuLu


It’s been a struggle getting used to having a dog.  For all intents and purposes, I’m a “cat person”.  I like my cat to sleep with me, sit on my lap, snuggle, talk to me, etc. etc.  If I wasn’t married, I’d be a cat lady.  Yeah!  I said it.  Cat Lady Lainey.

But, about 2-years ago Birdie talked me into getting a dog.  I thought for sure I was doomed.  That our cat would run away, and that I would hate having a dog.  My brother had a big dog once.  It jumped up on me and scared the shit out of me.  They lick places they shouldn’t and most of the time they don’t mind.

Overall, I wasn’t excited about a dog.  It was at a time when I was very sick and in fact, after we had picked the type of dog and picked a breeder – I ended up being in the hopspital for the first 6 weeks that we had our dog.  I missed the puppy part and came home to a little crazy dog.

I love my dog Spot.  Spot is a Smooth Fox Terrier, cousin to the Wire Fox Terrier (see the link below for Wikipedia).

Spotty will have the addition of a new little girl on Friday, Lulu.  We went to the breeded last week to pick her from the litter and she was just as cute as a button.  I’m not excited to go through the training process but once they get the hang of it, these are excellent dogs.  They are high energy and love to play!

Lulu is Spots first cousin, and she will be a great addition to our family.  Even our cat Pete would agree – dog’s make good pillows!  I’m getting very excited for our new puppy.  Here you can see a picture of Birdie holding up our new addition.
