Going to the Dogs!
This past week, I've spend way too much time on pet adoption sites looking at kittens. I'm convinced that Mel-B needs a cat buddy since Kato died a few weeks ago. She's been overly affectionate and has even let the kids see her which is unlike her because she is terrified of the children.
Earlier this week, I found the cutest kitten, Anakin and was showing his picture to Molly. I've decided to enlist the children in my quest for a kitten because there is no way that Scott can deny his children a kitten, right? Anyway, I pull up Anakin's photo to show Molly and she says, "Oh yea, he's cute but we already have a cat. We need to get a dog. Let's look at dog photos and get one of those." Molly is super dog obsessed and talks about how she is going to get a dog, a big, yellow one. She never waivers from this decision. She is 100% certain that we are getting a big, yellow dog. I'm just trying to hold her off until she is 5 before we get serious about getting a dog.
I might however take her to a fun event this weekend that caters to dogs and their owners. Natural Balance Pet Foods is hosting the 'Natural Character Cafe' which is Seattle's first pop-up "doggie foodie station" where dogs can sample a wide variety of wholesome Natural Balance food and treats specially formulated to bring out their one-of-a-kind personalities. There are sure to be some great dogs at this event and if you have a dog, you should take your pup for some treats! They will, surely, thank you.
