Yep, once again Jill has taken away my thunder, stripped me of my glory, usurped my uniqueness! What did she do this time? She decided she had to have a puppy from the same litter as mine. Like NOW.
She calls me on Wednesday:
Jill: What are you doing tomorrow? Want some company?
Me: I'm not doing anything. But what's up? You were just here and tomorrow is a school day.
Jill: So you won't mind if I come over? Will you take a drive with me?
Me: (Uh oh, something's up and I knew what it was!) Why are you being so mysterious? What are you up to?
Jill: Well... I um,... I HAVE TO get one of those puppies!!! I just got off the phone with the breeder and I'm going to pick one out tomorrow! Wanna come?
Me: OMG! OMG! I KNEW it! Yes, get your ass over here!
So yesterday, Jill came with the girls and Mom in tow for another puppy expedition! Ooh, what fun!
But wait, on the way there one of our "play" arguments ensued, this time about how the light bulbs get changed on the top of radio towers. I know, weird shit to be sure, but we argued about it all the same.
So I turned on my camera.
It turns out Jill was right. This time. There really are tower climbers and it's the most dangerous job in America. Go figure! And yes, once again someone else is driving my car. And yes, I did make Mom sit in the back seat!
Now, on to the puppies!
Jill was instantly attracted to this one, but Jill needed some cuddle and play time with her to see if she was truly the one. Teeth? Check. Clear eyes? Check. Ginormous paws? Check. Hmmm... let's see if she looks good with her.
Oops, I cut her head off. Let's try this again.
So, look good together? Check!!! She's mine! Er, I mean, she's Jill's!
Before we'd left the house, we were all throwing out puppy names. Mikayla, kidding, said, "Cannoli!" Well, cannoli are Jill's very favorite dessert food, so she instantly said, "That's the name! THAT is the name!"
And although 10 of you said you hated all of the puppy names I put on my poll... thanks for
nothing your honesty!... the name I chose is Strudel! Hey, at least out of the names you guys did like, Strudel came in first!
So now we've got a Strudel and a Cannoli. Anyone else getting hungry for pastry?
But come on. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwww
Would you expect anything less from Jill and I?
So Jill gave Lori the breeder a deposit, and soon we'll be able to bring home our babies. I'm so excited!
We left there to get a bite to eat, but first we had to turn around in this driveway. There's no way I could let this one go without a picture.
Great name for a contracting company, no? I have visions of The Village People erecting a building. Heeheehee!
Mom was a little cold in the restaurant and, with no jacket, she decided that covering herself with napkins (which were really hand towels. What's up with that?) would be the next best thing.
Is it any wonder why Jill and I are the way we are?
Poopy Pants wanted to imitate her big sister, so she stuck a toothpick in her mouth. It was too cute not to capture.
So that was our day in a nutshell. Good times, eh?
Pssst! If you love me, you might love my sister more. Go visit her at Jill's Believe it or Not, and tell her I sent you!
