I Got Babies on the Brain

I should warn you, this post isn't about running, fitness or nutrition. Oh no, no, no. Instead it's about a yearning and desire so strong I can barely contain it sometimes. I spend countless hours on the Internet trying to satisfy my urges. I think about it constantly. I can barely admit it to family and friends who would think I was crazy if they knew just how bad its gotten. It's almost out of control if I'm being perfectly honest....

Have I piqued your interest yet?

Alright, I'll just put it out there, for all the world to see and judge:


I know, I know its crazy! I already have a dog but he's all grown up now and spends more time with his furry friends at The Boyfriend's house then with me. He doesn't need me anymore. And I miss being needed.

I love puppies. They are messy and time consuming and tear-your-hair-out frustrating but their sweet and innocent energy combined with their willingness to be taught and molded just melts my heart. And who doesn't just adore the softness of a puppy's fur or the distinct aroma of puppy breath?

I know puppies don't stay puppies forever but I want another chance to take a sweet little 8 week old ball of fur and make her into a beautiful, friendly, well rounded canine companion.

Hell if they come in pairs I'll bite the bullet and take two. Double the fun and double the love right?? (Probably not, but how cute are these little guys??)

While I'm probably a year out from getting another pooch it's always nice to daydream. (I blame the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show) And if you don't mind, don't mention any of this to Barkley. He's a teenager and thus prone to overreaction and might think he's being replaced.

So tell me, what's your favorite breed of dog and why?


  1. Awww!

    See, I have the same problem. Except not with dogs, but with actual babies :)We might have a 3rd, we'll see!

    I think dogs are adorable, but they are not for me! I do think cocker spaniels are the cutest dogs though -- especially as puppies.

  2. I am bias.......we had a husky and she was AMAZING! I think they are an amazing breed. We now have a Doberman and he is also a fabulous loving dog who lets my 8 year old do anything to him, so ofcourse I love him for that!
    Good luck on choosing, that's a hard choice!

  3. I don't blame you! I love puppies and had such puppy fever at this point last year. I actually ended up not being able to contain myself and was a little spontaneous when I adopted one. You are right -- they're so much work but it's totally worth it. I love my little guy so much. :)

    And my favorite breed is a Boxer, hands down. We had one when I was in high school and I loved her so much.... so of course that's what I adopted when it came time for me to get a dog of my own.

  4. oh man oh man I remember spending COUNTLESS number of hours on the computer researching!!!!
    I like BIG dogs-I grew up with greater swiss and bernese mountain dogs.
    My pup is the exact opposite-a tiny little thang-but I researched A LOT to make sure I didn't get one of those bug eyed funky teeth pups and my pup turned out perfect (and yes i'm biased)-I have a "morkie" half maltese and yorkie mix!

  5. Awww I want a puppy too! A golden retriever would be ideal. I like them because they're adorable as puppies, and they (can) make good running buddies when they're bigger!

  6. awwwwwwwwwwwwww cute!
    i want a puppy too

  7. Any dog that has lots of wrinkles and looks cuddly!!

  8. I love long haired dachunds (I'm sure I spelled that wrong). Not sure if they are my favorite, but they always make me feel all oogly. :-)

  9. I just came across your blog and I'm so glad I did -- this post was just meant for me, haha, since I am totally. 100%. obsessed. with my dogs. I have 2 miniature schnauzers (best breed ever) and my little pup Daxter just turned 1 last month. We got him at 8 weeks, and I never would have taken it back ever. Yes, puppies are a lot of work -- they pee, they poop, they bark, they whine... but they LOVE you unconditionally! And there is no drug in the world that will make you feel better than a puppy falling asleep in your lap. DO IT!! Just... prepare ahead of time. ;)

    You can check out pictures of my spoiled little guys on my blog -- I did a whole tribute post to him on his birthday (I mentioned the obssesed part, right? Hahaha) -- http://honeyishrunkthegretchen.com/2011/01/21/daxter-turns-1/

  10. We are DEFINITELY getting a boxer puppy this summer! We have both wanted a boxer forever! Last weekend we were actually THISCLOSE to putting a deposit on a little boxer puppy that we would have got April 15 but we decided that was just a little too soon since we aren't even moving into our townhouse until the end of March. So we are going to wait until May/June to get a puppy now!

  11. You sooooo need a puppy. And you are soooooo not going to last a year without one.

  12. oh my, I ADORE puppies!!! Like, turn into a sappy, baby-talking freak kind of love :)

    I'm partial to puppy vizslas... all wrinkles and so bouncy! :)

  13. We got a pup last year. I usually like to go for a big sized dog like a lab. But this time my Boyfriend and I decided to get a Pomeranian. Mainly him. But I've obviously fallen in loveeeee with our little bouncer. He's very active, and super smart. Love him! I did a blog post dedicated to him today haha...

  14. I just picked up my "cavalier king charles" from getting pregnant last night! I will have puppies in 9 weeks and the anticipation is already killing me!! Cavaliers are so sweet and loving. I also have a border collie/blue heeler and he is soooo amazing!! He listens, he cuddles, he plays, and he cleans his doggie sisters eyes! It is too cute!!

    I have moved to milesinmurray.blogspot.com

  15. I want a puppy too!! I love minature collies and golden retriever puppies but honestly? They are ALL so stinking cute!

  16. I want a puppy or dog SO BAD! But we are ready to put our house on the market soon and we need to keep it as clean as possible. I had a german shepherd that I was completely in love with, and I love that breed. Something about their eyes. But, their hair is NUTS. I also love mutts of all kinds. I'm a fan of medium, large, and extra large dogs for myself, but I love all dogs, really!

  17. I want a puppy SO BAD! At this point I just don't have the time to take care of one and give it the exercise that it really needs. But I love dogs, and can't wait until I get one! I love golden retrievers, but don't want a huge dog. So, if I could find a small one, then I'd scoop it up in an instant!

    I want a tiny dog i can dress up, But I don't want a dog who barks a lot or pees in the house, and sometimes little dogs just can't help it. So, we'll see what I end up getting...

  18. I want a puppy tooo!! I've been thinking about it a lot lately since I'm graduating in 6 months and getting my own place. My favorite are golden retrievers (adorable.), I've wanted one since I can remember!

    of visual impairment, since when you focus on white letters, you are
