I always show Martin and Karin the photos of my online friend's cats and dogs, and of course they can't get enough of Cute Overload. So, when I saw that the pretty pretty Bluepoppy, who has been in a marvelous frenzy of daily posting lately, quite unlike her usual practice of making us sadly refresh and refresh and refresh wait a few days between nuggets of bloggy goodness, and MUCH APPRECIATED by her adoring public, had posted this scrumptious photo of her darling Daisy pup this evening, I immediately, of course, called Karin and Martin over to the computer to check out the 'dorable doggies.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, they both said.

I scrolled down to the 2nd and 3rd photos in the post, all puppity loveness, and aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwww! they said again.

Then I quite stupidly made the mistake of saying, "I'm going to get to meet those dogs! When I'm in Boston!"

Immediately, Karin's face clouded over and then her lip went out and huge white circles appeared under her eyes as her face went pink and tears threatened. She pushed me slightly. "Fusk!* she said, "Mama, NOT FAIR. I want to meet those dogs. Why don't WE get to go to Boston, too?!" All my sudden flailing and backtracking and apologizing and explaining was completely rebuffed. I am totally in the doghouse with my daughter.

I promised both of them lots of dog pictures from my visit, special just for them, but that wasn't good enough. How am I going to make it up to my dog-starved girl?

Ahhhh wellllll.... nothing to do really.

I mean, there's really no choice.

It'd be nice if there was a choice, but there's not.

You have to get her a dog. A big Labrador. Maybe one for each of them.

Hmm, I wonder if I can order you a couple from Amazon... checking...


Yes, well, since that is unfortunately not an option... :(

It is situations like this one wished you had some nice neighbours who own cute, well behaved dogs for your children to meet infrequently.

A song our English teacher told us:

Daddy wouldn't buy me a bow-wow
Daddy wouldn't buy me a bow-wow
I've got a little cat, and I'm very fond of that,
but I'd rather have a bow-wow-wow

Every single one of our neighbors has a dog. Karin is surrounded by other people who have dogs.

Feeling generous? Be my guest!

I can complain because rose bushes have thorns or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.
