Dogs are weird.
I love my 4 legged children (most of the time) but they do some of the weirdest things ever. Just this morning after I got done with my shower, I opened the door to see my red headed child, Mama Sue, staring up at me. Before I could even get out of the shower she proceeded to climb in with me so she could lap up the little puddle of shower water that had yet to go down the drain. Mind you, her water bowl was no more than 6 feet away from her at the time.
When Winston was a puppy he actually fell in the bath tub with me because he was trying to drink the bath water and lost his balance. Since he has such a ginormous head, the only thing I can figure out is that he was so top heavy when he leaned over to get a drink, the rest of his body followed. I think I had scratches on my arms for days after that adventure.
I would like to say that I have at least one normal dog but in order to truthfully say that, I would have to get rid of all of them and resort to carrying my stuffed animals around with me everywhere I go. I’m sure THAT will make me popular!
I’ve made it a point not to talk too much about my pets on here, for a couple reasons. For one, I am a huge animal lover and my pets are a big part of my life however, over the years I have found that the vast majority of people don’t like my pets near as much as I do. It’s nothing against other people or my pets, it’s just human nature. Some of us are born animal lovers; others of us are born fashionistas. But really the reason I try not to talk about my dogs or horses too much is because I could carry on for hours and hours about how cute it is when Piper sits up on her hind legs and stays in that position for 30 minutes (I call this Prairie Dogging, by the way) and most of you would be bored out of your mind.
But this morning, as I reflected on Mama Sue and her choice of morning refreshments, I decided that it’s been long enough and I can talk about my kids occasionally. Other people talk about their children all the time, well I don’t have any human babies but I’ve got my four legged ones!
As much as I love my dogs, I’ve just about convinced myself that I should get rid of them all and replace them with a micro pig.
Have you seen these cute little critters? I had an opportunity about a year ago to get a miniature pot bellied pig which I’m glad I never actually did that but now that I’ve been introduced to micro pigs, I’m pretty sure I’m going to have to have one. I’ve already got everything planned out for her. Her name will be Mudd, she will wear a pink tutu, and she will learn to ride in the car so she can go with me everywhere. Yes, I’m going to be THAT person!
I can’t wait until the day comes that I can buy a house with a hundred acres where I can have my herd of micro pigs, pygmy goats, miniature horses, and mini cows. *Sigh* Until then I guess I will be left with this one burning question.
Do micro pigs drink shower water?
