She's Here!

Oh, it was a tough job, but someone had to do it. I held her for the entire way home. And snuggled her. And even kissed her, despite the fleas. I love puppy breath. What can I say? I'm totally guilty. She put her head on my shoulder, for crying out loud. It was hard friggin' work. The hardest.

She's as sweet as a big fuckin' batch of candy floss!
And, she loves me. Oh yeah, she loves me.
Well, she did love me.
Until I abandoned her to the cold dark lonely unfamiliar kennel.

(She's going to be just fine. And so am I.)

EDITED TO ADD: I should clarify that her full name is actually "Carolina Cargo Flower Dress Hawk". S.Rube's very first suggestion (insistence) of a name was "Flower Dress" which we vetoed. I thought. Apparently B.Rube compromised and allowed "Flower Dress" as her middle name. I told the Rubes tonight that I would be sticking with C.C. But, they are calling her "C.C. Flower Dress" or just simply "Flower Dress". I cringe.


jealous of the starbucks in the pic (or is that envious?) said...

is it just me or does she have a "come hither" look in her eyes?

interesting debate (the jealousy vs. envy) - the Chaws had it recently, not without some heat (not surprisingly).
It would be envy. Unless you were in fear of losing me to the Starbucks coffee, in which case it WOULD be jealousy. Or if you wished badly on me and my Starbucks, like hoping it dumped all over me, or that it was so hot that I burned myself, or that there was poison in it, or that it was so strong I never slept again - those WOULD be jealousy.
But, I am assuming you simply wished that you had a nice hot Starbucks drink yourself; simply envy.

I LOVED every single sip of that Grande extra-caramel Caramel Macchiato. I made B.Rube drive for miles to get us those. I'm going to be up all night, I think.

I think that look is more of "what the fuck just happened to me today? where the fuck am I? who the fuck is this chick who isn't remotely like the ditch pig who keeps kissing me, despite my jumping fleas? where the fuck are you taking me now? can I please just eat and have a drink before we move again? WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON???????"
dontcha think?
