I Never ever thought the glaziers would have a dog!!! I thought dogs were for the Hardy's. We finally took the plunge and granted our childrens deepest desire and got ourselves a dog. Yes you heard me the Glaziers now have a blog and and dog!!!!! Wow we are moving up in the world. Lets just start by saying that all my kids have ever asked for, for any birthday or Christmas is a dog. And luckily Santa has never granted them their wish. Kale and I are just not "dog" people. However my cousin was moving to Singapore in January and couldn't take her little dog with her. The dog is the perfect dog for us. It was house trained, (well sort of, it had to get used to a new house) it was used to being around small children, it is a small dog that is very calm and low key and doesn't require a lot of attention, (I mean outdoor walking), and it hardly ever barks seriously!!!! Perfect situation for us. So for Kai's 8th birthday we thought this was a perfect pet. Here is Kai with his dog "PIPPEN"

It has so far been a good experience. He is such a loving dog. He just pretty much wants to sit on your lap all day. If I even sit to tie a shoe he is on my lap all curled up. I go to stand up and he begrudgingly slides down my legs. Now I knew that having a dog was more the adults responsibility which is why it took us so long to get a dog, but no one told me I would have a shadow. For some reason the dog LOVES me. Every where I go he is right at my feet, if I step back I have to be careful not to step on him. If I go in the car he stands and gives me this sad look, like I can't believe you are leaving me here alone. SO of coarse I bend he rides on my lap in the car. I NEVER thought I would be a dog mom with a dog riding out the window of the car to pick the kids up from school. See what kids get you into. I do love the dog but he still smells like a dog and still has had some accidents in the house and I have to cart him around everywhere. I work two full days a week and he has to stay in his room while we are all gone, so the rest of the week I feel to guilty to make him stay in there long. I never thought I would ever say that.

The kids take him on a walk but he is more like a baby than a dog, they usually carry him around or drive him in their jeep or scooters.

He is scared to death of Addi. If she is even close he runs for his life!!!! Unless she happens to fall asleep on the couch. This may be the closest he has willingly gotten to her. She usually has him in a head lock and he is trying to escape. She loves having someone smaller than herself to boss around. She goes around saying "Pippen bad dog"!

Don't let Kale fool you he even lets him sit on his lap which he said he would NEVER DO!!
Having a dog really opens you up to a whole new world. I now tag Heather and Mindy to try a dog. HA HA HA!!!!!
