Our Little Ones

I really get annoyed when people try to say that their pets are their children, when they take pictures with them, and when they dress them up....but I hate to say Jeff and I have somewhat become those people. Hopefully we are not as annoying and sickening as it seems.

We have two cats and two puppies. One of our cats, Elmo, is about 14 years old. I have had him since I was in the 6th grade. He is banged up but enjoys the simple things in life like sleeping on our bed and eating.

Our big orange cat around 2 1/2 years and is constantly mooching off of the neighbors and taunting the neighborhood dogs. He is a beefy cat but has the tiniest and cutest cry.

Nibbler, our first Shi-Chi (Shi-tzu/Chihuahua) is about 2 years and loves to cuddle. This is the first dog I have ever had and he taught me the joy of having a dog.

Belle, is our tiny Shi-Chi. She is about 10 months and she is very scraggly looking. She loves to lick, lick, lick, lick people and is very skittish.

One day we will actually have real kids and these guys will probably be on the back burner but for now we love them to death and enjoy their companionship.

  1. I have to say, Kim, it is both sickening and annoying how you treat your pets. As an innoccent bystander, I pray you have mercy.

    :) Just kidding. But the bond you have with your pets is kind of unnatural and I suggest therapy.

    Also, I can't wait until Belle has puppies! I just cannot imagine how tiny they will be.
