Mood Ring

There were many things I was planning on posting today.

One was I had been tagged like 2 months ago to do one of those posts where you list 10 weird, random, yet interesting things about yourself. But as of right now I only have 6 things. I don't want them to be forced and boring so I edit that post when something weird, random, yet interesting about myself pops into my head.

I was going to do another post about my love of all things Crocs. Like the fact that I plan to wear some in my wedding. But that post will have to wait until a later time as well. A time when I can surely convince everyone in the world (or at least everyone who reads my blog) that Crocs are the most wonderful invention in the world. Even if they make your feet sweaty.

But these things will have to wait.

Why, you ask? Well I'll tell you and show you...First I'll show you...

This is the newest addition to our (rather large) family. This is Oswald Cobblepot or 'Ozzy' for short.

Ozzy is a 2 year old beagle that fiance and I rescued from the animal shelter yesterday. Fiance has always wanted a beagle and I have been perusing animal shelter websites for one and earlier this week came upon this wonderfully cute little doggy.

As you can probably tell from the pictures he's very tired. He had been at the shelter for about a month and the poor thing was traumatized by the experience. Evidently he had been a stray that someone found on the side of the rode and brought in to the shelter.

Which raises the could anyone get rid of this dog? I mean, thank you, b/c if you hadn't we wouldn't be proud new parents...but still. He's very quiet (he's only barked twice) and he's very relaxed. This certainly is a big switch from previous pets. Plus he gets along with our cats.

So now we have 3 Batman villains for pets...the Joker, Harley Quinn, and the Penguin. Maybe one day we'll have Poison Ivy and Catwoman and all the other villains, but at the moment I am very content with our three wonderful animals.

In case you're wondering, one of the first things we did when we got Ozzy home was introduce him to Angus. We told him all about his little (technically) brother and that both of them have very special places in our hearts.

I believe in treating animals like family and this includes talking to them like they can understand you, b/c really, who knows if they can or know?

Awww. Him very, very cute.

And yes, talking to your animals is good. They understand your tone if nothing else. And they talk back which is wondermous:)

. . . You're wearing Crocs in your wedding?

Aww, how cute! Congrats! You have to share some pics when he's not so pooped (poor little guy).

Saw your comment. Maybe he needs doggie therapy. I'm sure once he gets used to being in a safe, loving home he'll be all perky.

Just saw Pirate Master and thought of you, lol!

Aww, what a cutie! Our kitty is our baby. We talk to him like we expect an answer. They are a part of the family. Now we just need to get the laws to reflect that. Remember the pet food contamination earier this year? The law says those people who lost pets are only entitled to what they paid for the pet, like any other property. I'm not sayin they should be equivalent to people. I mean, honestly, if it came down to your kid's medical bill or your pets, which are you going to go with? But, they are definitly more than property! Anyone who's had a pet knows that!
