Remember she's in heat?
That has been big fun all by itself without the stream of suitors we've had come to our door.
With flowers, chocolates, and always marking our bushes, they come to call on our beautiful purebred lab.
This is our most persistent bachelor.
I think he's a pitbulldoodleiuaua. He could be the worst looking dog I've ever seen so we call him Ugly, and he kind of answers to it. Trey has been waking up in a cold sweat fearful that this dog will taint his precious lab's line.
I reminded him that Fern was a stray so we really can't be sure about her bloodline at all.
I think he's got the rose colored glasses on again.
Seriously, the very last last last thing we need is puppies. Especially the spawn of Ugly who has mange and fleas and obviously not the means to care for his own offspring.
This morning, I was talking to a friend on the phone and I looked out the back window to see Ugly trying to do the horizontal mambo with Fern. He had broken into our backyard in a last ditch effort to get past second base. I screamed, threw down the phone and ran out to break it up. Can't you just feel the drama? My friend on the other end of the phone thought I was being murdered.
Nope. Just trying to preserve the chastity of my dog.
A minute ago, Ugly came back. You gotta be crazy to mess with papa bear.
Speaking of crazy, we have two boys living with us now. Their momma and daddy are having some issues and they needed a break from the drama for a while. By the grace of God, they really are the greatest kids. They have incredible joy despite what has surrounded them for so long. I have no idea what to do with teenagers. Mindy made sure I knew I couldn't send lunchables with them to school or they might get beat up. I'll keep you posted on how it's going. Please pray for them, their parents, and for us.
