fun with pets

Category: Pets and Animals One of my favorite things to do is pester Zelda.  One of the games I like to play with her is “stare down”.  We stare at each other, obviously. All the while, her little nubby tail starts wagging faster and faster and faster, like she is winding herself up like a wind-up toy.  Then when she just can’t stand it one second longer she jumps at me and does a little playful bark.   She can never win.  She get so excited and just HAS to woof at me.

Another game we play is “look how cute i am”.  She looks at me all sweet-like, then rolls over on her belly and keeps giving me the side eye until I rub her belly.  The fun part of this game is that I tell her she is a rotten ugly dog that no one likes.

“Wake up, mama” is another of her favorites.  In this game she throws her body entirely across me and barks at me and wags her nub at top speeds until I relent and take her out to wee.

My favorite game is “weird noises”.  Zelda HATES any strange noise you make with your mouth.  Whistling (which I, too, hate), thpppt-ing, buzzing like a bee, kissing noises. I am always trying to find new freakish noises to make.  She goes NUTS.  She jumps around and barks and growls and runs up to me then scoots back.  She’s a nut.

I also make up songs to all of the animals.  I can’t sing, but since they love me, they don’t care.   These are just a few of the fun things I do in my exciting rock star, devil-may-care life.

I am a loon.

Super Mutts
Current mood: surprised

I have a problem with this idea that because you breed two pure bred dogs and make up a cutesie name for them, that they are somehow special.  Wrong.  Labradoodle, Golden Doodle, Cockapoo, Snickerdoodle, Jimmy Jackstraw, Lumpy Pumkinhole.  Hell, I can’t keep up. I heard some people at work talking about a French Bulldog and a Boston Terrier, or something.  I know people who have paid fucking $475 for one of these. WHAT???  IT IS A MUTT!

One pure bred + one pure bred = a mixed breed = a mutt.

I am not sure why this bothers me, but it does.  I have paid oodles of money for purebred dogs, and I have no problem with that, but i would never in my entire life spend a fortune for a mutt.

You might have one of these new Super Mutts, and if so, I am sorry you got taken in.
