All About Peanut!!
What can we say about lovable Peanut? Really the question is, "What isn't there to say about Peanut." You might want to sit down. This could take all night. Think I'm kidding? I'm not. When we first got Peanut it was love at first sight. I let Nate pick him out because he hadn't had a dog in forever and this was our first puppy together. Kinda wished we would have done our research but what's done is done I say. He's the worlds biggest baby and when he doesn't get his way, he lets you know. Right now he's going through this phase of wanting to sleep in bed with us at night. Doesn't matter how many times you tell him to get down and go lay down, few seconds later you can feel these paws slowly walking up the center of the bed. He just wants to lay under the covers and when you let him he's good.
Peanut has lots of loves in his life. He loves to bite. He loves to lick. He loves to jump up. He loves to jump into the shower. He loves jumping at the T.V. when he sees another dog. He loves stealing your potato chips. He loves being the center of attention and he loves being told NO. Well I'm exaggerating. We love telling him no it's just he doesn't listen. Thankfully with Peanut we haven't had any major health problems., except for his psychoticness and major mood swings. That and well his allergies. His allergies are curable with Zrytec which works like a charm but his other "abnormalities" aren't. Frankly he's gotten worse over the year I think primarily due to Molly. He was really good when we got her but months later he turned towards the dark side. LOL.
He's not horrible but manageable. For some reason the vet thinks he's protecting me when he's "acting" out but Nate and I just think he's off his rocker. We're just used to it but he might need something stronger than the Prozac he's on. Above all else we love Peanut and when it comes down to it we wouldn't want to change a thing about him. What he does makes him Peanut and we are forever grateful for that. Besides how can you ever be mad at a face like this one?
What crazy things has your "first born" put you through?
