You've heard the term 'crazy cat lady' probably more times than you can count. In fact, a time or two that term has probably been used when describing me :) However, there is also such a thing as Crazy Dog Lady and I'm pretty sure I hold the corner stone on that title :)
Since all my children are grown and hubby spends a good deal of time on the road, I have a slight obsession with our dogs. So much so that our children do tend to get a bit jealous of our furbies. They are my babies though.
Since hubby decided to spoil me for Christmas and my birthday this year, I've gone a little food saver/kitchen aide mad. The past couple of weeks I've not only whipped up some goodies for the humans in this household, I've also gone to making homemade dog food for the furbies. I've always felt it was healthier and tried it one other time many years ago before all my fun new gadgets. This time around I have to say it looks much better and the dogs really seem to be enjoying it.
Today when I was cooking up chicken and rice for them, they surrounded me just waiting for me to fix their dishes. I have to say, it really made me laugh just thinking of the term "Dog Lady" because that is exactly how I felt.
Our furbies are not just dogs in our household, they are a huge part of our life. We wouldn't know what to do without them. Hubby says our boys, Shadow and Bear, are momma's boys, which is probably true for the most part. I do spend more time with them than anyone else.
They hang out watching tv with me. If I'm writing they are surrounding my chair lounging as I work. When night comes they curl up next to me and when hubby's home, they don't like to give up their spots on the bed for him to share the bed with us :) They have their own chair in the living room, or curl up on the couch with us. They camp with us, play outdoors with us, and keep those pesky squirrels at bay in the backyard.
They are my best friends, my protectors, my life size teddy bears. So, yes, there is such a thing as The Dog Lady, and I'm afraid I've lost my heart to the furbies that reside in our home.
Everyone have a lovely day!!!
Blessings to all!!!
