The dog lady

I have a best friend at work who always remembers my birhtday by giving me a gift. This year she gave me a night shirt which sports a dog theme. My friend and I have been very close friends for five years and we really have a lot in common.... except dogs. When we met, I was a lot like her, in that I would never dream of having a dog inside my house. Over the past couple of years, we have become proud parents of two wonderful pups, thanks to my dear daughter. I have to admit that I have truly fallen in love with our little guys. I'm the typical "dog lady" now, as I do tend to talk about my little guys at work and to my dear friend. She always shakes her head when I start talking about my little ones, as if she just cannot believe I am now one of "those people." This week, for my birthday, she gave me this adorable little night shirt with a few other "dog" related items. It was probably the best gift I had ever received from her, and she had a big smile on her face while watching me open my gifts. After it was all over, and she saw how happy she had made me, she replied, "You really disappoint me." hee hee So, happy birthday to the dog lady!

I'm with the friend. I don't know what happened to the girl I raised. No dogs in the house for me! I can remember you and me sitting around and talking about how silly we thought the people were who couldn't go anywhere without their dogs. And how they would ask if their dog could have a cookie? And how mad we would be if their animals left behind an accident. What happened?

Oh, I am one of those "dog pepole" too..and proud of it! Love the shirt - and love the quote. My pups are such a part of Mr. B and me - they are our "kids" now that the other's have discovered lives without us (can you imagine!) But they do bring so much joy into our lives (the dogs..OK, the kids too)
Anyway, Happy belated Birthday to you!

As much as I love Jess I am a cat person and as silly about them as you are about your pups! What a lovely friend to give you gifts you love even if its not her thing.

I love dogs, too, but your uncle would never let me have one in the house.LOL

What a sweet gift from your friend! My mom is one of those 'no pet' type people and she doesn't understand me, either! Hope you had a wonderful birthday.
