dogs x3...or x4

Look at how well received our Good Clean Dog Giveaway was! These three pooches are so sweet. Growing up my family raised Brittney and Springer Spaniels, and my sister Julie and I would sometimes sleep outside on sleep outs with the puppies during the summer. I can remember sleeping on the grass in our little sleeping bags (mine was Holly Hobbie), and getting no sleep at all. I think we always came inside around 2:00. But it was so much fun.
For those of you who do not know me personally, I had 4 dogs. I say "had", because my ex-husband got full custody in our divorce. Sometimes I miss them so much it aches....even after years.
(the dogs, not the husband, but he was/is truly lovely)
Sadly for me, but luckily for my pooches, they live in Grand DogLand. They are pampered endlessly and have a huge yard just of their own. Ex-husband also takes them on daily a dog park. I tried acclimating them to city life, but they politely said, "no thank you". It was really hard to do what was best for them. I miss their sweet little faces. So if anyone ever needs a dog sitter, call me up, because I need a dose. I no longer have my Hollie Hobbie sleeping bag, but it's summer and I'm ready for a good old fashioned puppy slumber party.

Aww, I'm sorry you are missing your babies. You can dogsit for us ANY TIME. One of these days my boys are going to surprise you at work... MuAhahUAhUaHUAH! They already love you because you're like the cool Auntie that always sends gifts or money. Speaking of which, when does the money come? Rocko's birthday is in August...
