Meet the Family

4 Apr

…the animal family that is.

This is Bogey, he was our first baby. He is mean and thinks he owns the bathroom. When we have company he sits guard at the bathroom door. He also has a hard time hitting the litter box…grrrr. We take responsibility for some of his behavior, he was Posey the first couple of months of his life before the vet broke it to us he was a boy. We are currently looking into therapy.

This is Stella, we thought Bogey needed a friend. They hated each other at first but that hate has grown to tolerance. Stella is the sweetest kitty every, a little anti-social but very sweet.

Greta was our first dog and she is very lovable. She loves her crate and she is great with Lila. We forced her to wear this sweater one Christmas. Poor thing.

Blossom is the baby of the household. We tell her she is more of a baby than Lila. She may be the neediest dog of all time but we still love her. She is very clumsy and super cuddly.

Here is a family shot, Bogey missed the picture…I’m sure he was busy guarding the bathroom or making a mess in the floor.

Furbabies

11 Aug

Yes, the house is full of furbabies. Before Lila arrived they truly were our babies. We started with one small kitten and that has blossomed into 2 cats and 2 dogs. Bogey was our first and we were so excited to have him, a few months later we decided he needed playmate…so we adopted our cat Stella. For a while we were just cat people and thought that is all we would ever have but once we moved to our house the yard was begging for a dog. So off to adopt we go and we came home with Greta. She was such a fun little puppy. After having her for about a year we decided she needed a playmate too so we adopted blossom. “Shew!” That’s all I can say. They have brought us so much happiness but they are a ton of work. I think we may be looking at some therapy for Bogey. He keeps telling us he doesn’t understand why we keep bringing new additions into the house. I think Lila was the final straw for him…haha

Here’s the whole happy family, we don’t even have anywhere to sit.

We were worried when we brought Lila home from the hospital. We are outnumbered in the animals department and we just didn’t know how they would all react. I have been extremely proud of them though. The cats pretty much ignore Lila and the dogs love to smell her and give her a few good licks. If I wasn’t there to monitor this it would probably get out of control and she would be a puddle of drool. Gross! Everytime we come home the dogs are so excited. It’s like they have never seen us before and they have to check out what is in the carrier. I keep telling them it is the same baby! I guess I should be flattered they get so excited to see us but sometimes it can be too much. If I am talking to Lila they want to be right there in both of our faces. If I have her on my lap, they too want to be on my lap. I feel bad alot of times because I know before Lila was here they got alot more attention from me. They do still sleep with us which I love. A good doggy snuggle is amazing. I could snuggle Blossom for 24 hours straight though and she would still make you think she hadn’t had any attention. I guess we just have them spoiled.

I think it is really sweet when Lila is crying and they come and look at me like, “The baby is crying, we are worried.” I think they will be protective of her and I just pray that she loves them. However, when Lila is about 5 and she comes to ask for a puppy, the answer is “NO!” We have reached our limit.

However, Lila will probably need a playmate one day. That is not in the near future though and would be hard to fathom right now. When that day comes Bogey will probably make a break for it.

Here are some more pics of the rest of our family.
