Do Dogs Get Complexes?

August 27, 2009

Carolyn has just posted some recent (like last night this morning) photos of Phoebe — she called her Phatt Phoebee.  The girl is a little chunky, but . . .

So, Phebes will be phlying to Albuquerque Saturday night and I’ll phetch her at our local airport.  I’ll be taking up the belly-rubbing, mantra-chanting chore.  “. . . easy whelp . . . healthy puppies . . . girls please . . .”

The Chebes are closer to reality.

    Ha! As long as you don’t let her read your blog I think you and she will be OK. Don’t be keeping fashion model pics around the house or let her watch any TV with skinny people on it. That will definitely mess with her self image.

    I made the pictures this morning before work. I posted them, then realized that her first litter was born 5 years ago today!

    Happy birthday!

      Hmmm — about that, 42 years ago today, I was in labor — Happy Birthday to my eldest son, Marc (who never reads my blog).

    How exciting! Safe travels, Phoebe!

    How do you think Inca will react?

    I would also be chanting “normal sized puppies – not giganto-puppies” when rubbing her belly…. 🙂
