One is born every minute.

Dea and Darius' cousin, K'jerell, stopped by the other night just to hang out with the guys.

We quickly found out, he had ulterior motives. He brought this.

He was given the stinkin'-cutest-puppy-ever from a friend and now couldn't feed it.

"My momma's making me put it out and I was wondering Mrs. Trey, if you could keep it, uh, or I could sell it to you."

I reminded him that he wasn't necessarily in the best bargaining position.

"ABSOLUTELY NOT !!! UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES!!! Well...okay."

Seriously, do I have "SUCKER" stamped across my forehead? Anyone have some fabulous oceanfront property in Arizona they're looking to unload? Apparently, just give me a call.

Now, looking directly at my beaming children, I said with great conviction, "We'll keep him TEMPORARILY until we can find him a home. Understand?"

Why were my children smirking?

My hope is that there is someone out there who is an even bigger sucker than me, and you'll drop me a comment or an email before my kids get home from school and commence with the begging.

Meanwhile, I'll be waiting...with this little buddy in my pocket.

temporarily=approximately 10-12 years. at least that is what it meant when we "temporarily" took a puppy! what a darling accessory it could be though!

He is awfully cute- S.U.C.K.A!!! :) Bring him on Saturday, we have gotten very good at reducing the dog population.

Can't wait to see you and your fam.

Precious...as puppies usually are!

We adopted a 3-year-old chocolate lab last fall and can't remember a time before him. I should say, he was not necessarily for us.

Nope.

He was for our golden retriever who literally lost 1/3 of her body weight grieving the death of our wonder mutt when he died at the ripe old age of almost 14. Our vet advised us we needed to get a dog for our dog...NOW who is a sucker?!

Good luck!

Oh my goodness it is lucky for me that I don't live in Dallas!

Cole said...

Oh, my! What an adorable puppy!!! I have the same "sucker" stamp across my forehead. Good thing I live nowhere near you, or I'd happily take that cute little thing off your hands!!

Holli said...

SORRY if I took the dog my husband might throw me and the pup on the street! so unless you want a 28 year old and a puppy on your door step - you might want to just stick with the pup!
