Puppy Love

“Happiness is a warm puppy.”
– Charles M. Schulz

Fig. 1

Watching the Westminster Kennel Club dog show has had an unintended effect.  Out of nowhere, J. has told me he likes scruffy-furred dogs with beards (see Fig. 1).  He also showed a distinct fondness for large dogs with dragging jowls.

Fig. 2

On the other hand, I go for the more streamlined and sleek looking dogs (see Fig. 2). 

In fact the only things we can agree on is that we both like border collies, and both are seized with rampant puppy lust.  It’s a good thing we don’t live in a flat that permits animals, otherwise can you imagine the raging fight we’d have?

Editor’s Note: 
Fig. 1 now updated.  The first “scruffy dog” I displayed was insufficiently scruffy, according to J.  This is my point.

  1. Haha we also get filled with raging puppy lust when we watch the WKC – and we already have 3 dogs. It’s a dangerous show! 🙂 I have to say though we side more with fig. 1 – in fact we were drooling over the Griffons last night. 🙂

    1. See editor’s note at bottom of post now! Don’t get me wrong, I liked the griffons, but the foxier, and longer the face, the more I fall in love. I can’t explain it!

  2. Haha it’s OK – we all have our taste in dogs! I love everything spaniel and my husband is just meh on them. He loves German Shepherds, and I’m not that impressed. Makes sense to me. 🙂

  3. Once you go to a shelter, the oddest thing happens. All expectations fly out the window and the one you never saw coming grabs your heart and streaks off with it, leaving you puzzled and perplexed at the end result. Yet, you leave excited at the new addition to your life.

    That’s how I ended up with my fabulous poochie.
