I sent some pics to my older brother in TX...well, no surprise..if we're in them, the dogs are in them. LOL Anyway....in a nice enough way I suppose, my sister-in-law writes back and sorta tells me to get a life. She wants me back in the working world I guess..........and, maybe I do talk about the dogs tooooooo much. Anyway, I was just wondering....does your extended family think you get tooooooooooo into your pets??? If so, what exactly do you say to them? My kids actually get a kick out of our dogs...altho, Stef always says this.."funny how you got Addie, the girl (like her) then Hammie, the boy (like lil Dave)...have they now replaced us?" But that's just a silly joke between us. THEY love the dogs and understand that I need my babies to love. (probably are thrilled...it takes pressure off of them!!! lol) This past weekend, I sent my little brother some pics....and even he is sort of annoyed at the dog 'thingy'. Oh well........I live in my own little corner of the universe with my furbabies. And..........THAT'S why I like it here!! LOL LOL hmmmmm, so.........anyone else have family that kinda thinks your 'nuts' over your pets???
