The Practically Perfect Pet


My sister drove up from AZ to get her daughter settled into life as a freshman at the Y. On the way they stopped to visit us and spend the night. I love it when my fashion-forward nieces come to visit so I can learn the latest trends in hair-styling. Okay, what I did this morning was actually more like spying. I hung around the bathroom watching as my neice teased her hair this way, then that way, and pretty soon she was looking like a runway model. I wonder if I can duplicate that look on myself tomorrow....
Anyway, this blog is not about hair trends--it is about dogs. Our guests brought with them a litter...yes an actual brood of the cutest little bitty playful puppies you have ever seen--well contained in a laundry basket with towels. They are called "Yorkies" and on the trip up they are going to give them to a "dealer" we'll say, who will sell them for some good money.




Here it is folks--the perfect pet. They are a special breed that is extra intelligent. That means they won't jump on your leg and mistake you for one of their own kind. They are very friendly and cuddly--great for kids. In fact they didn't even mind all the neighbor kids coming over to swarm them, pass them around, and love them up. They enjoyed it and showed it with lots of licking and nuzzling! Also--this is key--they do not shed. Who knew a dog could be hypoallergenic? So you can't use the excuse--"sorry kids, no dog for us, I am allergic to pets." Also, they don't bark--they can,of course, they just choose not to. They don't feel like it. They just feel like being friendly and cuddly and quiet and fun and perfect all the time. Pretty soon they'll be bred not to eat or poop.



Who wouldn't want one of these little guys?



Well, fork over the $. They are $750 for the males and $1100 for females. And, because they are such social creatures it's a good idea to buy a couple of them so they can entertain each other.



These little puppies have paid for 2 missionaries, and they are sending another one to college.


What an investment...start yours today.






Note: wait until your last baby is at least 2 years old. Babies and puppies need lots of love and you wouldn't want either of them coming up short. You might end up with babies chewing up your favorite shoes.






BONUS: Kate and Adrie almost overcame their extreme dogaphobia with these. They actually touched them.

Brynn certainly doesn't seem to have any qualms about the critters... I think I'll still claim allergies though since the pocketbook isn't coming close to handling that kind of a price tag! They are WAY cute though...

I want one. Can I just have a slightly mixed breed for a discount though? I come from the school where pets are free because people just dropped them off near your house.

Since I am not an indoor pet kind of woman, I claim, "Sorry kids, no fence." Since that is not to happen anytime soon any dog isn't perfect enough for us to fork out the moola.

They are cute. We have the dog phobia over here, too. It's so bad that because of the girls' screams when a dog is near I start to think the dog-owners and dogs are all bad. And that just isn't true.

Is that a steeple I see in the window?

Cute puppies -- I think my neighbor has a similar breed but I know they bark because it barks at me every time I come over -- until I am safely in the house and then I'm okay I guess. I like animals just fine but I think I'm too tired to take care of them. I always think I'd like to walk a dog though.
