where creative minds can interact

What you see is the expression on my face of exasperation upon learning that my fellow packsters were going to invite a stranger into OUR pack! I just could not wrap my mind around why our happy home would need another dog ... and all I could think was, "oh woof is me!"

So, here I was as happy as any four legged family member could be and Pop and Mom started talking about how I needed a buddy. Seriously, did they ask me? No! I could have told them I did not need any companionship (their word). To me, life is/was perfect. We walked in the park everyday. I had my own food dish and fresh water and even chicken strips as a treat every single day. Who in their right mind would want any competition?

Seriously, do you or would you want to share your Puppachino?

Would you want to share your 4 shot Soy Latte? On ice? Me neither!

And my bed! OMG just the thought of another furry body on my bed! Just look at me, does it look like I needed company? Seriously, Pop and Mom were not thinking clearly!

My walks! All I could think of was that my walks along the river would become a nightmare. I mean, I have a routine, my people, my life ... Pop and Mom were being crazy to think that our pack needed more feet. The thought of sharing Ms R? Oh the misery!

But, nobody listened to my woofs. Nope. The next thing I knew I was at the same shelter that Pop and Mom found me in and I was supposed to let them know if I liked "that dog". Well, once I saw her how could I let her stay locked up and not have the same kind of love I experience. How could I deny Zoe; that's her name Zoe, how could I deny Zoe a latte? a Puppachino? A walk along the river? a comfy bed? and lots of love?

I just could not so, I said okay and we all brought Zoe home to be a part of the pack.

BUT I still have days where all I want to do is stick my tongue out and say, pllllllllllbbbbbt! Pop and Mom were mine first! I don't care how cute Zoe is, I will always be the alpha!

And of course Zoe puts on that "poor little me" look and she is anything but poor and little! But, I still love her even though no one asked me if we needed another pack member.

Ah well, so was the day that Ms Zoe came to live with us.
