Exhibit A: Aspen. He's 10, he has a bum knee and is allergic to everything. E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G.
We got him when he was a pup from the pet store (don't do that) We're hopelessly attached to him despite the fact that he costs us well over $1000 a year in vet bills alone, not to mention expensive dog food. It's hard to see in this picture, but he has the most beautiful amber eyes that you've ever seen. They match his dark red coat perfectly. He's a loverboy who wants nothing more than a good pat.
Buster Tea Bear Junior (we did not name him) he's 12. He's much lower maintenance than his brother, but is an enormous priss. (they're adopted brothers, not real brothers, FYI)
Buster is the dog that we talk for. You know, talk like it's him talking. He has a slightly annoyed voice and is quite convinced that he is a rare wolf/bear hybrid born in the wild, to which he wishes to return. In Buster's wild though there are king size beds in the forest bacon grows on a bush and you can find pools full of butter. We're a little crazy, but it's really okay with me.
Besides thinking he's a bear/wolf Buster is weird because he hates children/short people. He'll growl at them. Luckily there aren't many children in our lives, so it hasn't been a problem. We just have to keep the little ones away from him when we're on walks. The short people is a bit of a bugger though... we have many short friends (short means below about 5'3") I'm not sure exactly what his issue is, but he's old so we pamper him, what can I say?
So that's it, my boys. What are your pets like?
