we've been talking about getting a dog for quite a while. i want a little black pug, but merv wants a big, huge-crapping, hairy dog and i don't think cody cares what we get. just as long as its a dog. i want to wait until our back deck is finished so its easier to get into the back yard. i've heard that pugs are kind of high maintenace too though. anyway, it's been really cold and dreary here so yesterday i took cody and brinley to a couple of pet stores to look at dogs. they had this huge tortoise there and the door of his little cage was open so you could touch him. poor brinley was perified that he was going to get her. it was cute. she thought for sure it was after us. even thought the thing was moving at the speed of a snail, (or a turtle i guess). but as soon as the kids both saw these little mice, they were way more intrigued by them than the doggies there. they liked how they exercised on the wheel. i've got to say- i've always thought that they are pretty cute, but i can't handle little rodents living in the house. they escape. my sister kami always had little critters and i remember more than once waking up in the middle of the night with a hamster crawling on me. yuck! freaky!
