so of course i am playing again this Saturday...
this is Guinness. also known as Guinney or Pa-tinners.
Why do we make up such cutesie names for pets?
Guinness is the little one on the far left, you know, the one that looks exactly like the one on the right and the one in the middle.
He was my dog. my second baby.
my second dog & my consolation prize for when i was
struggling to get pregnant.
Guinness isn't my dog anymore.
When i succeeded in getting pregnant for the 2nd time, (however with our 3rd child since we had twins the first time around), it was unfortunately time to find a new home for Guinness.
i had never given away a pet and was devastated by doing so, but it was a decision that i made for him and had to ignore my own selfishness of wanting to keep him just so i wouldn't feel awful and miss him.
so the weekend that i was in the hospital after giving birth, my husband and mother-in-law arranged for him to be picked up and taken to his new home.
i felt like i had just traded my dog baby for a real baby.
My husband's friend is a Yorkshire Terrier "pro" and we called her to find him a good home -- and it was meant to be because she called and said she'd take him.
So how do i say no to that.
i spent my baby blues bawling over Guinness that weekend but when i got home from the hospital, here is the picture that was waiting for me on my email.
a three pack of burrito-ed yorkies!the relief i felt when seeing this picture, i can't even describe. i think he traded me in for two new babies! it will be a year in march that he went to his new happy home, but i have kept this picture on my laptop since receiving it so when i miss his little yappy self, i can look at this and see that he is as happy as can be in that little pink burrito bed!
happy pink saturday!
