I cannot explain this. I don't even fully understand it.
Today I was in Target with the toodlers and I found myself in the dog aisle. And we don't have a dog. What was even weirder was when I was unloading my cart onto the conveyor belt and there were 2 dog bowls and a chew toy in there. I didn't buy them, of course, because we don't have a dog.
But I want one. And what I want is an English bulldog. Jonathan and I spent hours looking at videos of other people's bulldogs on Youtube Sunday night. You know you really need a pet when you are watching videos of other people's pets sleeping and you think it's cute. They are cute, though. Apparently, English bulldogs snore.
But it is silly, right? I mean, is it just that we haven't had a pet in almost a year? Or that both of our dogs were so clearly Jonathan's dogs and not mine? Or that the Lion seems more and more like a little boy and less and less like a clingy baby? Or that my life is not insane enough with these 2 toodlers underfoot and I need a puppy to chew my house to shreds and pee on everything?
And of course I am crushing on some fancy breed (read expensive) when our other pets were all from the SPCA or found wandering in our neighborhood... Is it because the breed is English? Because I already have supercute English names all picked out, whether the puppy be a boy or a girl.
Yes, people, I have got it bad.
