Critter of the Week – Boxers
First let me explain a little something about my boyfriend.
Since the day that we met, this man has not stopped talking about Sly.
Sly is a dog.
Sly is a boxer.
And pretty much the best dog in the world. well…was. Was the best dog in the world. Sly passed away a few months ago. Right after I fell head over heels in love with him. Oh, it was a torrid love affair.
Basically there was mourning in the Bower household. The earth stopped spinning and the sky was dark for days on end. We heaped ashes on our heads and tore our clothes as we wept.
Then we met Adrienne.
Adrienne’s Daddy is Sly’s Uncle. See the connection?
So anyhoo…the love affair with Adrienne began. At first it was a little rocky. (heehee…get it? Rocky…Sly…Adrienne?) But soon my heart belonged to Adrienne.
Then this past weekend I met this little gal.
And now my world is upsidedown.
How do you choose?!??
On one hand you have a woman who nursed you back to health from a wound that usually kills a person. I mean, I could have died.
And on the other hand, you have the most innocent creature ever. And she loves you and accepts you for who you are. Your ache for that new dog smell almost chokes you in your sleep. And when she kisses your face, oh…the kisses. Holy puppylove and all that is furry!
I am seriously considering running away with the little one. We could get married in Vegas and travel the world together. Then I could have her puppies. A whole litter of them.
But I would always regret leaving Adrienne. Sweet headstrong Adrienne. With the playful spirit and the strong will. That kinda woman doesn’t come around very often.
I think Adrienne loves Puppy too.
Maybe she would consider polygamy. or pup-lygamy.
and then we could be one big happy boxer family.
I’ll let you know what the owners say when I ask for their paws.
