So, there might be dogs on the horizon on this homestead. And not just any dogs, but 100 plus pound purebreed German Shepards to be precise. Oh yes. Two of them.
See, its kind of a long rambling story. My husband has to take a trip next year - a fairly long trip. He has done this kind of long trip before, having gone to Texas several years ago, so that kids are familiar with the idea.
My son, however, now thinks that everyone going on a long trip must be going to Texas. 'Cause that were people go, right? Hmmm....sounds good to me - bet its warmer than Vermont right now...
But anyways, I come home two days ago to learn that the kids now know about the pending trip. Or rather, I come home to hear "MOM! DAD IS GOING ON A TRIP TO TEXAS AND WE ARE GETTING A DOG!!".
Well, I think, a good evening to you too!
A dog had been a discussion point, but had been tabled until after the husband had returned from the trip. Now it was past the table, and flying straight to reality.
So, the discussion moves on.
It is my daughter who is most excited. "Mom, Dad said we are getting a dog! I want to name it Watcher or Hunter, or Ranger...or Princess! Yes! Princess!"
Giggles..."OK darl'in, go tell that to your Dad...."
Then the discussion ensues..."This can be my dog, right? The rest of you can get your own dog. Right?"
Then I worry about the dog not having a canine friend. 'Cause I am just that crazy.
So, I ask my son "Do you want a dog?".
My son answers "No. I want a movie"
Oh, well that is easier...
My daughter carries on "I am going to get a dog named Princess and I will enter him (yes, HIM) into a dog show, and with all of my winning, I will buy my dog toys".
Now, that spurs an idea with my son.
He follows with "Yes! I need a dog too! I will enter him in a dog show and with all of my winnings, I will buy my dog a MOVIE!!".
Oh my goodness, I love the way he thinks.
So, stay posted....time can only tell how this turn out!
