Okay, this can be placed in the Blush and Cringe section I suppose.
So, we've been thinking about a dog for a couple of years. Wanted a Yorkie and a family member of a family member needed to find one a home. Cricket aka Crickie was already potty trained, kennel trained, and obeys most commands. Very smart (and cute!) dog. Tiny thing.
But, he's got big-man syndrome. We brought him home and....he tried to go after the neighbor's huge lab-ish-Rottweiler looking dog. Hilarious since Cricket is like the size of that lab's nose!
So anyway, we have three guinea pigs. When the dog saw them, he jumped on top of the cage and tried to start opening it with his paws. He was very aggressive about it. I told my husband, "Ah, look sweetie! Cricket wants to play with the guineas."
My husband gave me a "you ARE one of those ditsy kind of blondes after all, aren't you?" and proceeds to lock the guinea cage and say, "You know what terriers were trained to do, right?"
Eyes wide, I say, "Uh.....noo-oo."
Oh, crud. So our guineas were terrorized for a couple days by an itty dog who thinks he's big. But the pigs no longer flinch or run in their house for asylum. In fact, they squeak at him like, "Pssst! Hey....go sneak in the fridge and get us some carrots, would ya?"
The dog on the other hand probably sees them not as pets but as a very well-balanced meal. After all, we named the guineas after various food. In fact, when the dog walked in and saw a cage full of over sized rats....he probably thought, "Yeah bay-be! The mother load!"
I'll let you know how this pans out in the coming months....
Okay....where'd everybody go? No one's commenting this week...tell me what your favorite pet is, or has been, or one you'd love to have in why. Come on y'all....humor me. LOL!
