Tug and Roscoe
I figured I'd talk about my other two "sons" that I have.
Our first pet we got together was our black lab, who is officailly registered with the AKC as Tug Gyrfalcon of Overlook Farms. My uncle lost his lab of 15 years to old age, and bought 2 puppies from the "valley". He ended up keeping one of the pups and selling the other one. I was luckily able to buy one of the pups from my uncle! Tug is one of the smartest dogs I have ever really been around! We went to this Hollywood Animals show at Universal Studios in Hollywood and they had these dogs that were doing all these tricks. And the whole time we were like "Hey, Tug can do that!" Only thing I haven't taught him is to "go on your mark". Where you have a small square or cirle like mat that you can throw down and have your dog go to that spot and stay. My Big Tug, as we call him, was born on November 17, 2004.
After a couple years, we figured Tug was old enough for us to get the small dog of our dreams, his new little brother. See a big dog was never what I really wanted. I have always wanted a chihuahua! But we ended up with our lab first, it's all good. Tug is so good with our chihuahua, who is CKC registered under the name El Chico Roscoe Valentino. He was born on December 15, 2007. I think what they say is right, once you get one, you have to get another! Roscoe is the perfect little baby, and he loves to travel everywhere we go! Valentine's Day is going to mark the one year anniversary since we got our little baby! We got him from a breeder down in Texas, and had him flown up to Anchorage on Continental Airlines. He was so bitty and tiny, my brother said "I heard of the pitter patter of little feet, but I would have never thought of it this way!" As my little Roscoe ran up and down the hotel room all night the first night we had him! We love him dearly, our dogs are our kids!
So, we were thinking about expanding our brood this year, and was in the market looking at breeders offering females in the right size and color that I want. But that is so hard, and I don't want to have to get a female that I can't make little Roscoe's with. And then I get an email about this little pup looking for a home. A small black male chi, that looks almost just like my Roscoe! I couldn't pass it up, and let the lady know I was interested. After she had a couple "appointments" to question other future owners, I guess she didn't have anyone that she wanted to give him to. Until she called me and started to ask me everything she asked everyone else. After like an hour on the phone she liked me and told me I can have him. I was so excited! I worked on everything to get him to me and my sister met up with her to pick my new little Dante up. So now I have a third son, who was born on July 26, 2008. I believe he's AKC registered, but I don't know for sure, he has all his papers on him though! His full name is Dante Cortez Jones. We might change his name if I can register him online, since she already has the paper registration filled out. Any white out or scratching out of other names voids the application. So I'll see if I can get him registered online! :)
I love all my babies, they are spoiled rotten. Ask anyone that knows me! My dogs have everything. My younger sister always tells me she's scared to see me have kids! She knows that they are going to be spoiled brats already, but I told her I'll raise my future kids right!
The pix posted are of my two sons ;)
PS.. my hubby is going to be the talk of the town. I "let him loose" and let him go up to have a beer or two with his younger bro. I guess everyone there was all surprised that he was even "allowed" to go up there... HA HA HA... like I said we don't really drink, but my hubby will have a couple cans of Bud at least once a month! But I thought I'd comment on that... LMAO!!
