Keep on keepin' it real!

April said...


If anyone deserve this do! You keep it so real and that's what I like about you! You are who you are and I love that! Thank you for your kind words, my sweet're one-in-a-million!

THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOO MUCH for this award! Girl, you are just TOO SWEET! April "tagged" me by guestbook. I think she tried to *edit* the post to add me, but it didn't work. At any rate - she did tag me and I sure didn't want to NOT acknowledge it. =-) I think she did well by tagging you too! Congrats!

Now, about your new pet (if I'm not too late) I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND a poodle.. and a FEMALE at that! The boy dogs are TERRIBLY HARD to housebreak! (I've NEVER kept a male dog inside because of this) We've had poodles, pomeranians, and yorkies (inside). The ONLY ones I EVER successfully housebroke were the female poodles.

The females are SOOOOOO SMART and SOOOOOOOOOO EASY to break! We have one now.. she's been trained FOREVER! She'll go and sit quietly by the back door until someone lets her out. (I've heard poodles bark a lot.. mine never have and this is our second. Well, second female that is) She's always been one you could tell to go get in her crate/bed and she'd go right to it. She sleeps with the boys (they'd have it no other way)

Oh, and another good thing about poodles - they DON'T SHED! (I can't stand to get DOG HAIR on me!) They don't really have all that much "doggy smell" either.

Anyway, that's my take. Good luck with whatever you choose! Oh, and I'm SOOOOOOO HAPPY to hear that GOD has delivered you from your fears! ;-)
