We here at we heart this love our pets. A lot of us treat our pets like they’re our children because for many of us, they are! We baby them, we baby talk them and we spoil them rotten. My husband and I don’t have kids; we have 2 dogs under 25 lbs that are perpetual babies. They’re also probably the two most ridiculous dogs I’ve known. One has crazy eyes that you can actually see her thoughts through as she’s thinking them. And the other one I’m pretty sure was in special forces in a past life. She is extremely protective of us and ever vigilant. Once, she and I went to inspect something that went bump in the night. We went in all the bedrooms and she took point, checked behind the doors first and under the furniture, then was out and into the next room. A plastic bag hanging behind a door was our only casualty–she saw a fan move and attacked without hesitation. I think she was disappointed it wasn’t an actual intruder. Which brings us to this week’s 3 Things…
1. Most ridiculous pet name you’ve heard? Gordon. He was a very chubby Boston Terrier. When my hubby and I got our first dog together, Bindhi (a tiny Miniature Pinscher), we used to take her to PetSmart to pick out fresh rubber chickens (that dog LOVED rubber chickens). It was on such a trip she met Gordon. And aggressively sniffed him until he peed himself. His owner kept saying “It’s okay, Gordon”, but you could tell that it was never going to be okay again. I still feel bad about Gordon, but I loved his name.
2. Dog strollers: Do or don’t? Personally, I have to say, “don’t”, but only because of where I live. New Englanders will stoically judge the hell out of you if they see you with dogs in a stroller. My one friend in Florida has a hot pink one for her Chihuahua and makes friends with all the other people with dog strollers when they’re out and about. To each their own.
3. Do you dress your pets? This is a judgment-free zone. Only when it’s cold! My dogs have sweaters for when it’s cold outside. And when they’re inside, they have fleece hoodies from Pajamagram that they will lounge in. I don’t put them in tutus or anything. My ladies are too butch to pull that look off. Just look at them up top, they wouldn’t stand for it.
Your turn, weheartsters! Cut and paste the following into the comments and tell us these 3 Things:
1. Most ridiculous pet name you’ve heard?

3. Do you dress your pets?
Krista resides in the middle of nowhere with her bff/hubby and a puppy that makes feral capuchins seem mellow. She has an irrational fear of ax murder, owns more than one machete for home defense/the zombie apocalypse, and goes to sleep serenaded by the sounds of the Chupagobbler, a mythical turkey beast that roams the woods around her house. Krista has been in the Bermuda Triangle twice and still hasn’t vanished. She is super proud of that.
