Or cat or guinea pig? What is the origin of this deep seated desire for a pet?
Notice how Joshua keeps one hand on the mouse while holding a dog on his lap. That’s my boy!
My good friend and neighbor, Julee, recently (as in yesterday) acquired a dog. It was unexpected and a complete gift – food, accessories, dog carrier, dog all free. My kids have been writhing in jealous envy ever since.
Tonight the kids had an opportunity to dog sit little Mia while Julee and her family were at church. What a thrill. We’re probably the only family on the planet who would go around offering to pay for the opportunity to pet sit.
Joshua is not as dog crazy as the rest of the children but he was in the comfy chair and Mia was looking for a cozy resting place. Up into his lap the dog climbed. The main responsibility of this evening’s pet sitting job was to keep the dog awake. This picture looks mighty suspicious.
Joshua, is that little dog sleeping?
We did our best. She obviously found Joshua too relaxing to resist.
