LET'S MEET MICKI #5 DOG(BABY)
I'm down to the wire. Well yes, Micki is our 5Th. dog(baby), and he's our wired haired terrier. Have you ever gone somewhere and maybe shouldn't have gone and bought something? I, think all of us have done that. Well, let me tell you about my visit to pet land. Went to this store to look for an item. They sell alot of dogs. I had 4 dogs at home and I'm a sucker for a sad story. The sales lady was holding this busy, white dog with copper markings.I was told he was 6 months old. Getting too old at times to get someone to purchase him. well, according to the sales lady this dog needed room, not a cage was getting depressed and not eating. She took him home to change his environment but couldn't afford to buy him herself. Well, i got hooked, but as I left the store I kept saying "FORGET IT, WE HAVE 4 BABIES". Got home, couldn't get this dog off my mind. We have 4 acres .My husband is a wimp about animals and naturally I had to tell him about this dog. It's amazing how fast someone can run to the phone. Found out the cost of this dog, bargained with the store, although still expensive, and next thing I know we are the proud parents of MICKI# 5Th. baby. As a result of this purchase, I am no longer allowed to go into Petland, Micki is our youngest child. His breed as a wired haired terrier, is appropiate, definitely he is wired. Now, we have 5 dogs with names starting with the letter M. They all rhyme. Micki is our runner. He loves to run and encouraged his siblings to run and chase. If there is a trouble maker, it's Micki. Micki is a Houdini, a great escape artist. Although we have a fence around the 4 acres, he will find an opening to escape. After numerous escapes, and sending him to his room, with a spanking ( a light one) he has learned his lesson and doesn't have this annoying need.We at times check the fence for escape areas. Micki and his brother, Murphy at times get into fights, usually about food or not wanting to share toys. My husband is NUTS about this child because he has so much life, maybe too much. Micki likes to jump on the kitchen chairs. He looks like he is waiting for his plate of food to be served at the table. We haven't broken him of this chair sitting routine. Micki loves his Daddy or his "JA JA". His "JA JA", has built him a seat attached to the riding mower and away "the boys" go,father and son. It's amazing what you would do for your child. I, never had a special seat on the mower.Micki is our "licker" He will lick you to death, I'm not used to that. My husband on the other hand.....When I reflect upon our adoption of Micki I think that although he can be a pest, he has added alot of humor and laughter to our family. Micki is our last baby, but next time, I would like to share with you about our final baby who is "our foster dog",Boy! are we NUTS. YES! YES!,but what can I say?
