It's HIS fault!
He even admits it! See what his t-shirt says?
We were out for a nice little family trip to run errands. I should have known better. I asked Prince Charming if he would drop me off at the Half Price Bookstore so that I could look for some of the books you all suggested. I wanted 15 minutes of peace and quiet so I could focus and make a quick trip of it.
Their errands were simple: Put gas in the car (they forgot), stop by Game Stop to pre-order a game(they did this), and get crickets for the geckos and meal worms for the turtle. This is where they got side-tracked.
I should have known. I was sending 4 people with mutant animal genes into a pet store, unsupervised.
My 15 minutes of undisturbed peace was interrupted by my children barging into the store, running up and down the aisles making a scene, yelling "MOOOMMMMM?"
I was thinking..."Please, let that be someone else's kids yelling, not mine, please not mine..."
But it was.
"Mom! Mom! Come quick! There are dogs just like Gracie next door!"
(Gracie is Beth's dog at Around the Funny Farm)
"Just like Gracie?"
I'm thinking...if they are truly Toy Australian Shepherds, they would not be in a pet store. I know..I've been calling a lot of breeders lately.
"Welllll.....sorta. They have something else mixed in too, but they're really cute!"
The something else turned out to be Blue Tick Hound.
And they were correct. They were cute. Too cute.
How could we not?
See the heart shape on the top of her little head?
and it was the right thing to do.
But, don't worry Muncie.
We love you too, and you will forever be the Alpha Dog at our Zoo!
