ello, ello everybaaaady. i hope you all are having a great sunday bloody sunday.
we had friends over to our place for the night, and had a very yummy brunch today at the Drake and probably ate too much. soooo, needless to say we are cuddled in watching mindless movies and puttering around the house. (gabe is currently wrapped cocoon-style in his hammock in our living room, snoozing occasionally)
i, on the other hand have been googling puppies on the inter-web for the last 2 hours~ reading and sadly wishing for my dog days to begin. (i am driving g. nuts with puppy-begging the last 24hrs)
you see, i am a dog person. always have been, always will be. i am a firm believer in only having pets if you have the proper environment and finances to accommadate them, and i think because we live in an apartment ( and i have for over 10 years now) that’s an obvious reason as to why i’ve been holding off. however~ our current place is very spacious, has a little backyard, and front yard which would be most suitable for a poochie. we also live beside beautiful High Park~ boasting with trails, off leash dog park and loads of places to exercise a four-legged fur babe.
G, on the other hand grew up with dogs either running loose in the streets, or the dogs people have as pets being left outside most of the year. well, we clearly aren’t in Brazil~ meaning our dogs live mostly inside, with us, like people. (he isn’t super open-minded when it comes to grasping this lifestyle!) so, it is definitely a place that we need to find a way to make it work for us, whether it is wait a few years until we are able to afford some sort of housing of our own here in toronto, or we do some re-arranging of our current place, and take the plunge.
my choice is obvious~ we do our homework and take the plunge! i can’t live my life without a dog in it, and i have for so long already, so as much as i know it will be a huge lifestyle change for us~ i am so ready to be a puppy parent. lots of friends have been pointing out all of the things that can be considered negative or difficult about becoming dog owners, and i am always grateful for the feedback…..however, i grew up with dogs, and while that was when i was a kid, i know we are capable of being awesome doggy parents at some point in our future.
this post is mostly just a regurgitation of my thoughts about dogs, puppies and my yearning to have one of my very own ever so badly. ( i don’t think it is the first time for this on my lil’ blog!!) so, that being said~ all you dog owners out there: kiss your babies for me today and give ’em a big squeeeeeeze from me. for now, i guess i’m squeezing a brazilian… which ain’t so bad, either!
