Over the weekend....my brain fell out

Apparently, I have taken leave of my senses, entirely. The gray matter went SPLAT! right onto the ground and my heart fell into its place.

Leave of senses #1. Now known as "Jasmine."

She's a two-month old black lab something. Have I mentioned I already have two dogs? Yeah? Puppy makes three. I am insane. Someone get the straitjacket and stick me in the loony bin.

Honestly. I couldn't help it. Unruly batted those big green eyes of hers and said "Please mommy! I PROMISE I'll take care of her!" And so far, she has. She was even up at 5:30 a.m. this morning to take that puppy out to go potty. Still doesn't make me any less of a sucker, does it?

Leave of senses #2. This is "Calypso."

Calypso is an early birthday present for Hubby. She is a 7-year-old appendix Quarter horse and she's a doll. I think Chief, our old man, is absolutely in love with her. As soon as he laid eyes on her lovely self, he turned into a young stud colt and strutted his stuff for her, nickering softly. I just know he was asking her on over to his pasture for the evening!

The flies were biting badly and I couldn't get her to stand square, so it's kind of a crappy photo...she's MUCH cuter up close and personal!

I'm a dog person, and Jasmine looks so sweet! As for Calypso, what can I say? I have a soft spot for horses. I'm not an experienced rider by any means, but my dad had horses and since he passed away, I always long to go on a ride and try to reconnect with him. What a beautiful life you have!

A horse? I'm going to send a link of this post to The Wife, saying "hint, hint. Christmas ..."

Then I'd probably end up with a dog.

I would not have been able to say no either. I can just smell the puppy breath.

OMG SO so so so cute! of COURSE you couldn't resist! Who could?!

Jenn said...

Puppy breath, in the face! She's a licker and a lover, that's for sure. And already knows her name, the little smarty pants.

Dorky dad...can you believe it? I got my husband a horse. And I'm the horse person! He adores her already, but wouldn't admit it, not in public anyway!

Wow. They're both adorable. I so wish I had more space, and then more animals, and then I'd need more space again... Sigh.

Sigh, I can't believe I'm admitting this in public, but yeah, she's awesome!

I saw two horses for sale in the BND a week or so ago and thought of you.

Congratulations on the new family members!
