For this week of Thanksgiving I am doing a photo a day challenge giving thanks for many things in my life. Today's topic is an animal you love and are thankful for.
Welp folks it was bound to happen sooner or later. You all were bound to find out that I am THAT lady. The "I don't have a baby so I take
4000 20,000 photos of my dog" lady. Cesar Milan would have a field day with how we humanize our dog. But, guess what? We don't care. He is amazing! He is our "handsome little man" and "Mama's bubby".
Crap. Our kids are doomed with nicknames like these as well aren't they...
Swish is a 3 year old 12lb miniature dachshund. He is a brown/red dapple and he is so so so sweet. He knows when I am having a bad day and he greets me at the door every single day when I come home like I am the greatest thing since sliced bread.
So here it goes folks- lots and lots of pictures of my little buddy. Maybe seeing his royal cuteness will make you smile a little today :) It also may cause you to think that I am insane.
Partly true indeed.
Also feel free to skip the crazy dog ladies pictures... I had to restrain myself from uploading too many photos...that doesn't mean there aren't still a ton of photos I wanted to share- and even more I left on
I present to you Swish(y) (McSwishy) -aka Buggie, Baby Boy, Handsome Little Man, Boo-Boo... (Don't judge lol)
At first Swish was an itty bitty little tiny baby...
|Everyone collectively say awww|
Swish still sleeps like the one on the left to this date!
|He was soooo tiny!|
Then Swish came home with us and he got a little bigger.... but not too much..
|Swishy in his Papa's recliner.. look how tiny!|
|Swish with his best bud Mojo!|
|And he made himself super comfortable in our king sized bed..|
Swish spends a lot of time just lying around like he owns the joint!
But he also loves loves loves his walks! Can't you tell by his smile?
If I am holding my coffee cup within his reach Swish will sneak a sip and instead of stopping him we take pictures.... So naturally I bought a cup that looks like him...
There was this one time where we took Swishy to get fixed.. he wasn't too thrilled with that at all and he was even less thrilled that I dress him up in baby onesies..
Swish loves to spend time in my lap...
And he really really really loves laundry of any kind..warm or cold..
And this one time a bought a lawn ornament that looked just like Swish and my husband was going to ship me off to the looney bin...
And of course there was the incident of Christmas 2012 where I tried to get the perfect Christmas card photo....
How Swish looked at me after our little photo shoot... Crazy lady...
But mostly Swishy lays with me and loves me on my worst of days....
So there you have it.. crazy dog lady status for sure... but seriously I am so thankful to be Swishy's Mama. Life sure would be dull without his little butt around to keep it interesting.. and who else would I get to ramble to without judgement or verbal reply??
