The “kids”

I have two dogs that think they are humans. It doesn’t help that we treat them like humans.

Here’s Obie:

We found him on the side of the road in May 2007. Somebody dropped him off with a bag of dog food and a bowl. When we found him we weren’t sure if we were going to keep him. We were in the process of moving to our new house and were going to have to stay with some friends for 2 weeks. Needless to say, after about 3 hours we knew we would keep him. The next day the BF took him to the vet and found out that he had just about every worm under the sun-including the dreaded heartworm. We decided to get him treated and after a long 3 months he was cured! We are so glad that we made the decision to keep him!

His favorite pastimes used to be walking and being chased around the backyard; the walking we could deal with-chasing him around the backyard was another story. We tried to teach him to fetch, to no avail. We decided that Obie needed a friend (to, you know, chase him around the backyard so our old butts didn’t have to!). After WEEKS of searching we finally found a dog named “Suzie” at the local humane society, a black lab mix. We took Obie with us to meet “Suzie” and we think it was love at first sight. That day we came home with our new little lab…but now we call her Mollie:

(After her bath on her first day home)

She was very skinny when we brought her home and it didn’t take us long to figure out that this dog LOVES.TO.EAT. Anything, really. Dog food, dog treats, frogs, lizards, poop, sheets, blankets, socks, whole stuffed animals…the list can go on and on. Mollie is our little “problem child.” She seems to always be getting into trouble…it’s a good thing she is so cute and loving!

And she is a fetching machine. She would probably chase a tennis ball until she passed out if you would let her. Guests aren’t allowed to go into the backyard without taking her magical “Chuck-It” stick.

Obie and Mollie are inseparable. They like to pretend that they hate each other and they play-fight constantly, but they truly love each other and we love them and I couldn’t imagine life without both of them.
