YAY!

I got my dog today!!! *shriek* TJ is a HUGE fluffy white Great Pyrenees, who looks rather like a polar bear. He is, rather was, my aunt and uncle's dog who they have had for quite a long time. But since they are moving to a small apartment they won't have room for him anymore, so they gave him to us. My aunt Pat just flew in with him today from Mexico City where they were living. It's so exciting though, I've always wanted a dog, and now I have one! Ah, I'm just way too happy... I'll try to put up pictures of him soon.

Woo! Have lots of fun with TJ... Moosetarrrd! ;) I can't wait to meet him.

Zenka said...

Cool! I love dogs. Isn't he the family's dog? You referred to him as "My dog", so I'm unsure. Enjoy!

Rose said...

He is Emma's dog. She will be taking care of him, but I still sort of think of him as the 'family's dog'. Sorry, Emma. ;) I'm sure you will be a great care-giver to the massive pooch. Ah...he is just too cute. And such a baby. I'm looking forward to having him.
I love you all!

And for Michelle's sake...
CHOPPED LASAGNA! :D

HAHA! That's awsome Rose...;) (knowing wink) I had my first Martial Arts lesson today. It was interesting. Kate wasn't at S&D! I hope she's there on Thursday, because she's not going to the tournament on Saturday. Guess what? I only have to get up at like 6:45 on saturday! YAY!

Zenka said...

Guess what? I got up at 5:45 this morning to go to Mass! Ha! Beat that... I have no pity for you. Sorry.

By the way, check out my awesome new sidebar!

Emmy said...

Yep, he's my pooch.
Hehe, I only have to get up at 7:45ish tomorrow. Burn y'all!
Love to everyone!

*yawn*

I just woke up, and 8:30 is about as early as it gets for me. Haha!

Emma, I'm happy you got a dog but regretful that I'll now be terrified if/when I and my fellow vandals ever return to the scene of the crime. Heck! Has the window been washed yet?! SeanD and I almost came up a while ago (Day after Rose's party, I think.), but then it didn't work out, and it obviously slipped our minds again, and I really hope that that marker hasn't chemically bonded with the glass yet. Oy.

Tight stuff, fool. Dogs make this mortal coil bearable.

And in case Rose is reaing this, I maen excluding anything to do with religion.

Cow Shea said...

Not my mortal coil. Dogs are the one thing in this world that make me worried about the preservation of my mortal coil.

I hate dogs. Not all dogs. But at least 98 percent of all dogs I've ever met. Most of the dogs that I know I enjoy. Kidu, Homer (RIP), Angel and Heidi, and a couple others. But if I see some dog on the street: Fear and hatred.

I've been chased and attacked by too many mutts to really trust strange dogs.

Again, this is not an absolute rule, but just a general statement. I'll at least give this new beast a fair chance.

Rose said...

Cowee, we still haven't washed the window. You and Andrew and Sean still need to come up and wash it. Don't worry, when you all come, we will protect you. :) But Mom and Dad are waiting for you...
J-mac, what the heck are you talking about? Hm.
Well I hope you all have a grand day, and that you enjoy the feast of St. John Bosco! God bless you bunches!

Emmy said...

You'll like TJ, Cowee. He actually kinda reminds me of you; big, fluffy and friendly. ;) And as far as future vandalising goes, you need not worry because he is put up at night in the back.

Well anonymous, you can just keep your thoughts to yourself!
And just for the record, anymore rude, hurtful or otherwise unkind comments will be deleted.

Hi Matthew,
This is Mrs. Curtis and I just wanted to say that I am right there with you when it comes to dogs. I dislike them and I am afraid of them. It has been one of those things I've carried all of my life. Well, TJ is great and if I can say that, that is really
saying something. He really is sweet and mellow. AND, he is put up at night out in the duck pen so there may be barking but no attacking. SO...when you guys come to clean our windows, guess what? No dog to prevent you from getting the job done!

Mrs. Curtis said...

Sorry, but I feel I have to say something with regards to 'anonymous'' comment. I am sure you have all been taught by your lovely parents that if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. I am also sure that you have all been taught common courtesy. Why would anyone say, "TJ? What an awful name."??
That was rude and uncalled for. It may not have been what WE would have named him, but it is what my brother and family thought was appropriate for the dog and they had a very good reason to name him that. Plus, it stands for a good Catholic name, Thomas Joseph, so who could have any objection to that? And 'anonymous', yours was not the only negative comment regarding TJ's name--there were a couple made face to face to us-- so I don't mean to single you out, well, maybe I do, but I don't mean to be rude or hurtful to you. I'm just making a point, one that perhaps we can all learn from.

Cinia said...

That's terrible!
Maybe we should inflict stricter rules upon our blog.

Cow Shea said...

Hahaha! It's good to know that my career as a future unvandaler hasn't been threatened. It's also good to know that I can be compared to a dog and it's a good thing. Although I think I might have to take issue with being called fluffy. Am I fluffy? Sheesh...there goes my self-image.

Anonymous, enjoy your spaghetti.

And I'm sorry nobody reading this (Including the anonymous person, most likely) will understand exactly what that means, but trust me, it's comeupance for being rude.

Anonymous comments drive me crazy...
