Rhett loves our little Yorkie, Roxy. In fact sometimes I wonder if Roxy is another Rhett trapped in a dogs body.
They shred papers together.
They eat dog food together.
They lick each other.
They both bark when someone comes to the door. (Okay Rhett hollers DOOR!!!!)
They both eat sand.
They are both obsessed with water.
They run around in circles at night just before bedtime.
They share fruit snacks.
They share an obsession with poop.
You get the idea.
We are lucky to have such an amazing dog that will tolerate pretty much anything Rhett dishes out.
She weighs about 5 lbs and so she makes an easy target for Rhett to pick up and pack around the house like a rag doll. We have finally got him to pick her up under her front legs now though. Before he would grab her by the head.
If you were to come to our house on any given day this is what you would find.
"Rhett, be careful with the dog....
"Rhett, let go of the dog...."
"Rhett, put the dog down..."
"Rhett, get out of the cupboards and come get dressed, you can have a fruit snack later..."
"Roxy? Seriously you get out too!!"
A boy and his dog, haven't decided yet who is more trouble. It's probably sixes both ways.
On another note, Chloee won a bike from school!! Every time she did her reading for the month she would get to put her name on a token and put it in a box in the office. Then at the end of the year they do a drawing for a boys and girls bike.
Chloee happened to be the one who won the girls bike. She was so excited. She needed a new bike bad. Her other one was broken and really worn out.
Now she has this pretty new one!!
I'm telling you the girl has a lucky streak in her. We have decided that Rhett needs to rub her belly each day for good luck.
Speaking of luck, we spent Monday night in the ER with Rhett. He is in 2nd degree heart block, which is good for the fact that he isn't in complete heart block which would be 3rd degree, that would require a pacemaker.
He's been in 1st degree since his open heart surgery, so this is a development we didn't really want, but are thankful that he doesn't need a pacemaker quite yet.
Anyhow. There is alot more to this post, but I don't really want to get into it right now. It's a post for another day.
For now, have a Happy Wednesday!
