Cats and Dogs

If you know me, you know that I'm not really an animal person.  I always grew up with a cat, but even then I wasn't totally stoked about it.  My current cat, Kitty, is the best cat we've had and he has begun to redeem cats in my eyes.  However, I'm still not a big fan of other peoples cats.  Right now I am catsitting for my grandma's neighbor, Mary.  The cat is a black cat named Bella.  She's a pretty cat, but I still do not really appreciate having her around.  She's all over my stuff and I keep tripping on her.  Stupid cat.  I guess it's nice to have a roommate though.

On a similar note, we (the Whitsons) have a new addition to the family...a puppy!  We've never had a dog before.  It's name is Cooper.  I hate that name, and I told my family that I refuse to call it that and I will call it pooper, puppy or kitty instead.  It's a little white puppy, and it seems to be more of a cat than a dog but it's good for us as we attempt to transition from a cat family to a dog family.  He's cute and my mom is utterly in LOVE with the thing.  The only problem is that puppy thinks the phrase, "Go Potty," means sit.  So we bring him to the potty pad and say, "go potty," and all he does is sit down and eventually he lays down on the potty pad.  It's cute and pathetic at the same time.

Not on a similar note, but fantastic nonetheless.  Valentines Day.  I got to see Nate!  I'm blessed.

At least he doesn't go potty when you say "sit".
