That was it for my childhood and then Rocky and I got married and he loved pets (especially the kind that live in your house and sleep in your bed). I was not so sure about that! We have tried several times to have a pet (5 to be exact) in the past and it never works out.
Then came Honey. We bought Honey (for entirely too much money) and even got her papers. She is a registered toy chihuahua.
Honey was supposed to be Rocky and Ashlynn's dog, but she is certainly more attached to Rylan and I. As you can see, she is our "watch out and attack" dog. I'm still not ready to have her in my bed, put her on my Christmas card, or add her to my will. BUT, I am starting to like her a lot and "even, maybe, almost" think that she is a very vital part of our family. I'll keep you posted!
