In honor of the Dads & Their Pets theme, I asked my husband to write the post with me. The following is from him:
The Pudgy Princess
Our first furry child we've had together as a married couple was our Pudgy Princess. She was the greatest child we could ever have. She was an older child, 11 years old, but she acted like she was still a very young corgi. Full of energy and always wanting attention from her new family. I remember when we first moved into our house she would always want greet me at the front gate whenever I would arrive home from work. She was truly our princess and having to let her go was the most difficult decision we had to make. Even after almost a year since we had to let her go, I just need to see her pictures and I just become very depressed for having to make that choice. When the opportunity came for a rescue we took it. My wife found 2 corgis and we just knew we had to take them in. They may be brother and sister but they are polar opposites from each other. The girl is a lazy, grumpy growly princess and the boy is hyper, affectionate prince who hogs up all the space in the bed and never wants to be apart from his mother. hehehe Even though they are nothing like our Pudgy Princess they are special in their own way. We love out furry kids with all our heart and would do anything for them to make them happy.
Captain and Grumpy Princess
Pudgy always used to greet him - that first night when she was gone it was really hard for us. :( Never come between a man and his dog, let me tell you! She would complain every time he even tried to hug me! LOL It's funny, because we adopted her to be my dog, and she ended up being HIS dog! She really was Daddy's girl. My husband didn't mention his kitty, but he has his cat too. He found Sabbath underneath the car when we lived in the apartment - he walked in the door one day and goes, Um, I found this under the car? LOL
I have to say, I have a great husband when it comes to our pets - he doesn't blink an eye whenever someone else needs a home. A lot of guys aren't that easy going. There have been moments we've felt like the crazy cat people, but he takes it all in stride - even when there have been nights that we've had as many as 7 pets sleeping in our little bed with us! LOL
