I borrowed this picture from a "pumpkin lady's" website, but just love the little dachshund she carved. Our newest family addition is a little dachshund named Sweet Pea and she is such a baby girl! She sleeps with me every night and cries if she is not in my lap most of the day. Yes, it gets annoying, but she is our precious baby.
We also have a shih tzu puppy named "Butterbean." He isn't as loving as his little sister is right now, but he is coming around. Last night he jumped in the bed with us to sleep for the first time ever. So there we were.... me, my husband, and two dogs in a queen size bed. We both agreed this morning that we need to upgrade to a king size bed soon.
Now, my mom thinks I'm crazy to have gone dog crazy all of a sudden. I have always been a lot like her in that I did not want any animals in the house. My 20 year old daughter has always loved dogs and has wanted one inside the house forever. We had tried with a couple of dogs through the years, but it never worked out. I can't believe my daughter has talked me into having TWO dogs now.
**Either I'm getting soft in my old age or I am absolutely losing my mind, for I do love my new dog babies!**
