Girls Write Out
Thursday, September 13, 2007
The church lights are dim. Light music plays as the bridemaids sashay down the aisle. Suddenly the music changes to something that has Bow Wow in the lyrics (wish I could figure out that song!) and down the aisle comes the ringbearer--a dog dresssed in a tux.

Yep, it's true. My cousin got married last Saturday and I saw with my own eyes a wedding like this. Just like at the end of my book INTO THE DEEP. When I wrote that scene three years ago, I thought "no one will swallow that this would really happen." Now here we are in 2007 and there are stores that sell dog wedding clothing.

My son and new daughter are thinking about getting a newfoundland. My daughter is a huge dog lover (especially of her lovely Golden Retriever Parker) and owns See Spot Clean in Goodyear Arizona. I'm a huge dog lover. But I never thought I'd really see something like this. The entire assembly was laughing. It was the cutest thing! Pets are important to us.

Denise has a wonderful Golden named Daisy. She always has a smile on her face. I could see her in a wedding dress. Maybe we'll marry her to Parker. Wouldn't that be a sight to see? You're all invited. LOL

And speaking of Daisy, please pray for her! Denise is afraid she might have gotten into rat poison on the barn. She's been treated and we pray she'll be okay. After all--she has a wedding to plan!

I want a boxer, but I do not want to clean after one more living thing, so I'll wait until my kids are gone. Hopefully, none of them will be serial killers -- don't they always say serial killers didn't have pets growing up?

Ahem, this is not actually the dog in the wedding. I didn't have a picture of Jackson. LOL

Colleen, that looks exactly like our Shadrach! I can't believe it! LOL I've got to show that to my dh and son. They'll crack up!

No wait - they'll go get the doofus a suit. Never mind. They're so ga-ga over that moose, it's unbelievable. I'm sporting a huge, and I do mean huge bruise on the back of my arm becasue that moose jumped up on me. He's taller than me!

Wait, maybe a jacket isn't such a bad idea for the dog. A straight jacket. :o)

You can see a picture of him on my blog Scroll down until you see him. Then you'll know what I'm saying.

That is an adorable picture!

I love dogs and I have a little spoiled Westie named Lizzie now. They're a dog who thinks they're big. But I have had a lot of dogs.One of my favorites was our Irish Setter, Zeke, who was too big for a show dog. He was a big chicken, too, and climbed into my lap at the vet's.

My husband talked about getting a Newfy, but hey, as sweet as they are, you better be ready to have a manure spreader! (like with horses)

I was at a friend's house one time and her Newfy liked me so much, she wanted my attention. Boy, did she get it! She tried to crawl between my legs from behind and took me clean off my feet! And just nuzzled me to death. Plus, they slobber their kisses. But boy, are their babies cute.

St. Bernards are adorable, too, as long as you get a well-bred one. But they slobber big time! Bring towels.

Poor Daisy. I pray she gets ok.

My husband won't let me get a dog. He's not an animal lover at all. But, i think I'm entitled to a dog due to that suspicious campfire in my backyard! (no more of them lately, thankfully)

I really want a lab or a dog the size of a lab that is extremely loyal but willing to tear an intruder into pieces now that I'm alone 80% of my week!!

Can Samson be real and then I'll just borrow him?
