Monday Mugs - Pets



Are you in need of a mindless Monday Blog post? Are you struggling to deal with the weekend being over and can't muster the strength to type a single word? Well, Monday Mugs is for YOU! I may or may not "borrow" ideas from IheartFaces and post my interpretation of their weekly theme. Without submitting my photo for judgement and not being forced to follow the rules.

Mondays are hard! Blogging on Mondays shouldn't be!

Today's theme for Monday Mugs is: Pets
Everybody, meet Frank.
We're pretty sure this is Frank, who Lily got for her birthday about 2 years ago. We had other fish that did not survive our tank. Bailey named one Cinnamon Twist.
We would all like a dog but DaddyO and I can't agree on what kind to get. I have been working on a twelve month program, to harass DaddyO in to getting a cute LITTLE mutt and not a slobbery bulldog. We'll see how that goes!

We are having a similar debate in our house; but hubs doesn't want a dog and we do! (I mean, come on, what is Knees and Paws without a family dog????) Good luck with your decision.

We don't even have a Frank. Ni had a dog growing up but you know I am ok without one.

Tiffany said...

How do you keep fish alive? Seriously? My house is death to fish. We would love to get another dog, but we will be rebuilding/installing a very protective fence first.

I love fish! We've had many over the years. Our last was Gidget and the kids still miss her.

I loved doing this post! It brought back so many great memories I just may have to get a Guinea Pig again. Good luck with the dog. Out of the two choices I woudl go for the mutt also!

Hello there, Frank!

Amy said...

Awww I had a fish... HAD...for like 2 days... way to go keeping Frank afloat! Good luck getting a furry "little" friend!

We tried fish unsuccessfully on different occasions, and the only one that survived was my daughter's Beta. Frank is very handsome, by the way. My advice on a dog is to get one the same color as your carpet. That way their shedding hair doesn't show as much. :)

Great shot. I mean how did you get him to stop and pose for you? LOL I kid but that is a great picture of a swimming fishy. CUTe.

It is so nice to meet Frank:) Although I am assuming that Frank is dead now?? I never had a goldfish live for 2 years or more. LOL Get the cute little mutt DaddyO

Lexie Loo & Dylan Too said...

Awww, Frank is cute!

Love the picture of Frank!! My kids want fish but I jsut can't add anything else to care for yet!

Kari said...

I can't believe I missed the Pet's meme! Ugh. Charley's grandpa passed away on Saturday and things just shifted with my schedule and routine. Blue - I need to remember blue for next week!

ps...cute fishy. I've had a few Betas.

Frank looks a little shy. Cute pic! :)

My parents had a bulldog. She was cute, but incredibly gross. Unfortunately, they do not do well in the hot weather... she overheated and died (despite the fact that she was an 'inside' dog and my parents were careful with limitting her time outside). My dad was devastated.

If Heidi turns out to be pregnant... y'all interested? HAHA! If you want my advice, do a search on dogs that are not big shedders. Our dogs shed their undercoat twice a year. It's nasty to have that much dog hair in the house. I feel like I'm vacuuming constantly. Flipside... the boys LOVE them and they LOVE the boys. Shedding aside, they are a big part of our family. :)
