How much do I love my dog?  

Apparently $140 dollars worth.  I swear, the Katie goes to the vet more often that the rest of us go to the doctor.  But she's almost 9 years old, we've had her longer than either one of the kids, and to be honest, she doesn't KNOW she's a dog.  

She's a spoiled rotten brat princess with a horrible ear infection, but I lurrrve her.

I have lipstick smudged under my nose in this pic.  Must find a way to photoshop that out.

There was a guy with a bull mastiff at the vet this morning.  It was the size of a Shetland Pony, maybe a little bigger.  230 lbs!  Makes Kate (at 64 lbs) seem tiny.  It didn't stop her from growling at him, even though he could've eaten her for a mid morning snack!

I am:: home
I feel:: broke
I hear:: I would die 4 U - Prince

I am the owner of faded_design I approved your membership, but I do ask if you can do me one favor, even if you are not sure who made your icons, can you please put By Unknown or something to that affect, or if you made them, state that too. Only because it is part of our rules and it makes the other makers happy to see we have people that are willing to credit even if they are not sure who made the icon. Welcome to the community and I hope you like what we have.

She looks spoiled :))) Good! Every dog should be!

She is ridiculously spoiled. Doesn't even bother to get off the couch when we come home anymore; she just sits there like she owns it!

How could you not love that face? I hope Katie is feeling much better soon :)

I had a dog like that once. He was a kelpie cross and liked to challenge bigger dogs, but only when he knew he was perfectly safe - like at a set of traffic lights, where the two cars are going to travel away from each other ;)

She's so sweet to humans, it's just other dogs that she has an issue with. I think it's because she doesn't know she's one of them. ;)

You look gorgeous! As fallenwitch said, I am going to firmly ignore any more post about u talking about ur looks or weight!!

I love dogs too. Both my husband and I grew up with dogs around us. Sadly with our lifestyle of shifting cities like mad, we can't really afford to have any pets. *sigh*

I can so relate to your Katie story. Had a Lab like that...

Aw, thanks.

I think people with dogs smile more. She's such a source of joy for me. Less so when she was going through her "puppy" phase... several pair of slippers - shredded.

Do I need to comment on your post? Because I can't post there.

I'll go look again and see if I can't figure it out for myself.

Thanks for the Katie Bell icon! *hugs*

Oh, you're welcome! Anyone who has that much pooch love, needs a pooch icon, lol! I was working on filling requests for the comm last night, but I am doing a d/g thingy.
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on February 24th, 2007 01:26 pm (UTC)
Okay, I did it!
ex_justduch on February 24th, 2007 06:37 pm (UTC)
Yay! Thank you. You can request graphics from any of the open requests in the comm.

I understand vet bills! Isn't life with pets just grand! (most of the time, anyway)

Great picture!

She's an excellent dog. I feel safe in the house with her around, so I guess coughing up the cash to make her feel better is fine.
