Buy a puppy.
Yes. Because a puppy is EXACTLY what we need right now.
But look at him. Oh my god. Heavens to Betsy. Betsy would go to hell for this puppy if she had to. (And if not, then Betsy is obviously a heartless tramp.)
We want even more security for our new house and we thought (Chino thought, thinks) that a good scary dog would do the trick. See that sweet wittle face? That's a sweet wittle Pit Bull face - ISN'T HE SCARY!?? You would totally not rob our house if you saw that in the yard.
LOL I love little bastard already and actually called into work yesterday (I never EVER call into work) to stay home and keep him alive because I was convinced he was dying. Poor little thing would have died had I not trekked across the border for special formula and then force-fed him all day. I even took him to the vet over here in Mexico - all by myself - and used my limited vocabulary and miming skillz to explain that my puppy was trying to kick the bucket.
A few shots, some medicine by mouth, copious amounts of force-fed formula and having him sleep with me because he was cold and then getting up at 1:30am, 3:30am, 4:30am and 5am to let him potty and shove some water down his throat - and what do I get???
SHIT! I got puppy shit that was more shit than it was water (hhooorraay!!) which means he's already getting better and my efforts are paying off. I've never been so proud of a pile of shit in my life.
I haven't got enough sleep in about 4 days and now Chino is getting sick as well (God help me) but I feel surprisingly fine. Did I mention I'm about to pop out a half breed? I'm pretty sure I'm a bad ass. AND! I've got an idea that I might just survive when Daisy is born. Even though I was dead tired last night and really DO need to get some proper rest, I wasn't pissed or even cranky about getting up to nurse him along. If the cat woke me up all night long meowing because she was bored I might kill her - but the puppy is sick and I LOVE him like a bandit so it makes things different. I didn't know that I'm capable of being sleep deprived and not turning into an evil woman in need of an exorcism. This is exciting!
OH and p.s. I need a name for my puppy. I've been calling him "Pooper," and will continue to do so until I find something else - and obviously I need something else. Chino wants to name him "Frijol" (not frijole, just frijol (free-hole) which means bean. OR he wants to call him "Pinto" like the bean. Really living up to that "Beaner" image there husband.
I can't say frijol without thinking of Bevis and Butthead saying "cornhole" "CORNHOLIO!!" and Pinto just reminds me of a shitty car. Help us. Help the sweet puppy not be a beaner or a defecator.
