We have been replaced.

8 Jul

By a dog.

For Father’s Day, we got my dad a dog. Well actually my mom gave him permission to get a dog and then he spent the next week and a half looking for the perfect one.

His name is Elam (my dad is a huge Western movie fan and named him after the character actor Jack Elam) and he’s super cute. He started out shy but now he is a little devil ripping into everything with his razor puppy teeth, getting in between your legs at lightening speeds and tearing chunks of hair off my dachshund’s back end yet she can’t get enough of her new friend.

It’s like my dad has a new child, taking it for walks, getting it new toys everyday and cutting up treats especially for him. Like I said, we’ve totally been replaced by furry cuteness.

Postscript:My sister and the dog have the same color eyes. Jealous.

    I understand how you feel. My parents’ dog is treated like a spoiled grandchild. I think that’s why they were okay with me and my sis moving – more one on one time with the dog. :)
