My Babies

Our babies are just SO cute that I thought I should post a video of them. Our three dogs are Anabella, Henry, and Nicky. I've had Anabella since I was a sophomore in college and she is now 7 1/2 years old. She originally lived in my sorority dorm with me and had lots of "aunties" that babysat her when I was in class. She is VERY spoiled and has daddy wrapped around her little paw. I adopted Nicky about 6 years ago from the West Valley pound. He was going to be euthanized because he was deemed "unadoptable" due to his old age. According to his records he was 13 years old at the time, which would now make him 19 and he's still going strong!! Despite being blind and deaf he manages to take walks with us every day and play fetch (with the kitty's toys much to their annoyance). Henry is our newest doggie addition and was also on the euthanasia list at the pound due to being fearful (who wouldn't be terrified being in a pound?!). We adopted him shortly before Thanksgiving and he has been a perfect fit in our family. He loves snuggling and follows me everywhere, prompting the nickname "Shadow Dog." He is learning basic obedience and has so far mastered "sit" and "stay." Our kitties are named Viktor and Evan. Evan was adopted from Friends for Life and used to be a feral cat. He is now a huge lover boy and is always glued to our sides. He is (and will always be) terrified of strangers though and most people who visit our house regularly have never seen him! Viktor was a stray who wandered into our backyard one day. I promptly scooped him up and declared him ours, which Ryan surprisingly went along with. Viktor is extremely naughty and always up to no good. He loves running out any open door (our cats aren't allowed outside) and rolling in the dirt. He also knows the word"treat" and will beg like a dog until I give him one. Landen is his favorite person and he sleeps with him all night, spooning him as he sleeps. Not surprisingly Ryan has put the kibosh on anymore animals, for now.

Christy- I saw your comment awhile back, but I don't think I ever got back to you?! It was so good to hear from you and see your cute family!!! I love blogging! I have caught up with so many people I haven't seen in years! I haven't been good at posting lately- I'm 38 weeks with my second baby. Having a 14 month old and being pregnant is killing me! Hopefully soon I'll be better at posting and also getting back to people...
