Go vote for me as funniest, then come back & confirm the fact you were right...
that was me bein' all up in yo face gangsta style... that fancy title there. Yeah, right, my great fear is coming face to face with Snoop Doggie diggity dog-dog & not having a thing to say but "so, is your wife scrapbooking your Rap career ?"- i'm cool like that! Wait, how am i now talking about rap? This post is about the D-O, double G=dog! Now anyone that knows me knows i have NO love for the dogs..No, i don't think your dog is cute, No, it does not look like fun, Yes, it does smell bad. i just don't like them- save the hate mail! But what is it about becoming a mother that makes you throw all caution to the wind & do stupid things like throw slumber parties & give kids puppies? Honestly i swore i would go to the ends of the Earth to deprive my child the chance of a childhood made happy by being the owner of a dog. And then along came.... yorkie! Or the dream of a Yorkie rather. Did it all start with Paris Hilton & her dog in a designer bag wearing a diamond collar & tiny Dolce & Gabbana outfits? Ok, so maybe at 1st I wanted to BE that dog, but i guess a seed was planted. It doesn't take much once you share the dream of a miniature puppy with a small girl, the next thing you know it's taken on a life of it's own & she is the one wanting the dog- no really, it WAS HER! Her 6th birthday is in July, so now i have the perfect excuse.
To make a long story longer...
Our good friend, whom i'll call: Pioneer Mom, had the 411, the hook-up, the name of a lady who raises Yorkies. I've also decided that perhaps Pioneer Mom is the hook up for a lot of good stuff in general- she's currently on the prowl for an "outbuilding" that a farmer no longer wants that's not too big & not too small & kinda cute that could be converted into: an art studio on our property! but again... i digress....
We call the breeder & she has little 5 month old boy left & she's wanting to find a home for him. What's the hurry? Well, we find out there is something "wrong" with this little guy, but because i feel everyone have the opportunity to be loved, i press on. He's a special needs dog apparently... he has- are you ready? horror of horrors....
an under bite.
HUN? Well, apparently, in the world of "show dogs" that is the kiss of death. When we go for our initial meeting, i ask about this horrid facial deformity, because, honestly- i can't see anything wrong with him. Of course due to the fact i was raised by "The Queen of EXTREME Thinking", i'm expecting bottom teeth up to his eyebrows, excessive drooling & and an oxygen tank strapped to his back. Have you seen the movie or read the book by Kate DiCamillo: "Because of Winn Dixie"? The people who meet Winn Dixie all say he's smiling at them. That's the look our pup is going for, those little teeth on the bottom give him a cute little "smile". Darling daughter was at her grandma's this weekend, so i wanted to surprise her Sunday when she got home, even thought we're a month early for the birthday the puppy was ready!
To say my child does NOT get real excited is a HUGE understatement! I knew i would way OVER plan, but what can i say: i do get real excited! I had a birthday balloon, a birthday cake, the mister ready with the camera, the video-camera set up on a dish pointed at the door and the dog in my arms wearing a bumble-bee doggie-T!
Here's one of the 1st pictures of her coming towards the puppy... see how she's all FREAKING OUTThe "pretend" birthday party!The final result=true ♥

I know these 2 are on their way to becoming fast friends :)
Now if i can just quit screaming "quit pulling on his neck with that leash!!!!!!!!!!" this is also the 5 year anniversary of when i met my daughter! IF you're new around here- i adopted as a 1st (& only) choice! I never ever, ever wanted to give birth. From the time i was 8 or 9 i KNEW that i was called to adopt from China. This child has been the absolute love of my life from the second they emailed me a tiny picture of her at 4 months old. I can't imagine my life without her & if you've EVER thought for a second about adopting a child- DO IT! If you have any questions about the process, i'm more than happy to share what i know. i used Great Wall China Adoption if you want to check out their site- they were awesome!
To celebrate this wonderful day we went to our favorite Japanese (yeah, i know...) Steakhouse.♥~love~♥Darling in her pink cow-girl hat... i can't BELIEVE she'll wear that thing in public, she usually goes to great lengths to avoid being noticed... yeah? what's up with that?
Have a great day!
