These photos were too good not to share on the main page of Fashion Snag. They represent the other side of me, the jock and the huge animal lover. If there is one aspect of my personality that hasn't changed it is my love of animals. Since I was a little girl I was obsessed with all types and I took pretty good care of any pets I owned and there were always plenty. I think if you own an animal you are its guardian and you should take care of it until the very end, whether it be a guinea pig, hamster, dog, cat, or fish. You can see all my animals by visiting the Poodles & Pigs page. The Inspiration page also includes some other animals we see around here.
My boyfriend and I go walking all the time and we run into many dogs that have somehow escaped their yards. I never want them to get hit by a car so I bring them back to safety and call their owners. This was such the case on a rainy day this month when I was in my favorite Walmart shorts, Ralph Lauren tee, and Nike shoes. Bo and Bear were aimlessly wandering the streets in busy traffic and I entertained them for an hour until their owners picked them up. I introduced Bo and Bear to our Labradoodle Cruiser, but I think Cruiser is more into balls than other dogs to tell you the truth. He is almost as obsessed with the ball as I am, but trust me I am way more obsessed.
I throw the ball almost every day for my own dogs, including my two toy poodles. All I have to say is "ball time" and everyone pretty much knows we are going to be playing. I am loud and the other dogs in the neighborhood often howl and bark while I play with my own dogs. They howled incessantly on this day as well. I didn't let my toy poodles meet Bo and Bear since they are so tiny I have to be careful. Bo and Bear came all the way from California and are new to the neighborhood. Bear was my favorite and he is the one featured in a single shot by himself. He was gentle. Bo was a little younger and wild I think. Treats are required after ball time of course and everyone liked the Science Diet biscuits. Bo and Bear were returned to their owners and I don't know if I will ever see them again, but I sure hope they remember our time together.
