pets on the brain

Thursday, 22 January 2015

Last night my brother-in-law sent me a link to a 4 year old Rottweiler named Boss who needs a new home – if you're in Tennessee, go check him out! I've grown up with Rottweilers, so I'll always have a soft spot for these guys. And that head tilt they do, probably the cutest thing. Our family had the sweetest male, Tucker, and female, Austyn. I called the shelter to ask about Boss, but I'm not sure we're ready for the big guy juuuust yet. But Rottweilers are probably on the top of my list for a next pet.

So, of course, I've got animals on my mind. Frankie, Jay's childhood cat, was put down just before Christmas after a long battle with cancer. I hate cancer. We were lucky to spend the last couple years with him and give him lots of extra petting and love. Jay grew up with cats and dogs, but mostly cats. I didn't think I was a cat person until I met Frankie. He reminded me of a dog, but less "maintenance." We also fell in love with Nolan's cats (the brother-in-law that send me the link– he's in Vet school, so we'll have a doctor on hand soon).

We still have Godzilla, the Savannah monitor, but I'd like a mammal one of these days. Here are a few animals we're considering for a fun and playful addition to our home when we're ready.

Left to right, top to bottom...

+ Bengal cat. We've been reading a lot about Bengal cats (and other exotic breeds like Ocicats and Scottish Folds) and even found a breeder nearby in Richmond. From what we've read, they make great pets, and their colors and patterns are so beautiful. 

+ Doberman. We've heard that this is a top dog breed amongst Veterinarians because they're not susceptible to many diseases, and plus, I love big dogs. 

+ Vizsla. This is a breed Jay's liked for a long time. They're incredibly intelligent and would be great to bring along for a nice trail run, as they like to be active.

+ French bulldog. What's not to love about these little guys? They're too cute for words and have a very curious and playful personality.
