[Comments] (4) And they call it "Puppy Love": Susie and I went to the Irvine Spectrum last night, just to look around, as Susie has never been there before. There was a pet store there (seemed a little out of place, but that's another topic), and they had the absolute cutest puppies I've ever seen! They were also selling birds for $800, but that's another story.

In particular, I fell in love with the silk terrier, cocker spaniel, and mini schnauzer. I think, eventually, when we have a home, we'll end up with a terrier of some sort.

There were no prices on the puppies, which were all born and bred in Iowa. I guess they wait until you fall in love with them to give you the price. There was a teenage girl clinging to a puppy begging her father to let her have it. After much debate, the father won out. I thought to myself, after witnessing their little display "Duh! You knew this would happen. Why did you go inside in the first place?" One of the workers, who noticed that I had been watching the altercation, told me that it happens every day. Needless to say, I can't go back, cuz I'd come home with a wuzzle.

As cute as Sadie? Ha!
That's how it was for me except when we got home the first night, she wouldn't stop howling in her own room that she slept in, she had to sleep with us. And when she slept in our bed, she peed and pooped on the bed to thank us. I never thought she was so cute anymore.

I had two dogs growing up. The first one I inherited from my older brother, who had already house broken him. The second one was house broken when we got him. I guess that makes me extremely spoiled. But I think it's easier to get them a little older and house broken (and past the "chewing up important things" phase). Do you think you'll ever get a dog again?

I will never get a dog again. At least I hope so. I really don't like smelly dogs I don't know why and I don't like animal hair on my stuff.
