Our Family Grows
Posted by: Dale Franks on Friday, December 29, 2006

When I got home this evening, The Lovely Christine informed me that she was ready to expand our family. We had talked about this lately, but she seemed dead set against it. But, apparently she changed her mind, and so...we did it.

Her name is Starbuck. She's a six week-old Pit Bull. And she's a lap dog. No matter what you do, or where you put her, she climbs right up in your lap. We are gonna have to break her of that habit sometime before she reaches 50 pounds +.

The ferrets don't seem to care much about Starbuck, or vice versa. Kitters the Neurotic Cat, on the other hand, is not happy at the moment. She...resists change.

She...resists change.
Our cat, Eugene, was unbelievably offended when we brought our first born son home. It was late December, pretty cold, yet the cat refused to come back in the house for two days.

When he finally did, he sat at the foot of the bed and stared belligerently at us for perhaps ten minutes. Cats must be telepathic, because I got the meaning clearly: "How dare you bring another pet into this house!"

We had a mastiff once. Great dog, but she, too, liked to cuddle. And snore. It sounded and looked like something out of a cartoon, with those jowls literally flapping when she exhaled. I highly recommend them, if you have the room.

My son’s dog got up to 45-50 pounds(half Irish Wolfhound and half beagle, believe it or not) and still tries to flop in your lap if you give him a chance.

Dear God. I hope the mother was the Wolfhound, lest the pregnancy overwhelm her. Though that leaves certain... other questions unresolved...

Gorgeous pup, Dale. Congrats!

Mithras, any male knows that where there’s a willie, there’s a way....

Billy, my dog, Fuzzy (chow mix), had about the same reaction to my wife when I got married. Fuzzy’s a good puppy, so there weren’t any major problems, but for the first 2-3 months, Em couldn’t get up from anywhere she was sitting / lying without Fuzzy plopping herself down right there. And refusing to move. And trying to beg me for attention 24/7. Eventually, she accepted that there was a new alpha female in the pack hierarchy.....

Female Wolfhound/male beagle. From what I was told, it was a unusually small female, the kind a breeder would steralize to keep from passing it on. But since they just had her as a pet...

Way he turned out, I’d have to consider it a very good cross. Friendly, smart as hell and protective. He once ate a turtle with a six-inch shell. I mean chomped up the shell and ate it all; them wolfie jaws are something.
