Like so many others, my "pet" is part of my family.  My little pug "Uire Ma Cushla Ta", ("Cushla" for short) is a doll baby, everyone who knows me, knows we are a package deal.  Don't invite me for a weekend visit and expect me to put her at a kennel,not going to happen.  She is extremely well behaved (trained) and has a great personality; gets along with people of all sizes as well as dogs and cats of all sizes.  Her "best friends" are a cat and a golden retriever, her unofficial "boyriend" who is fixed (thank heavens) is a very large, 80lb male pitbull who just loves her like she is the queen of his world; we do love visiting all her friends as well as mine!  When my sister calls she always asks how her "niece" is doing and yes, I send her pictures regularly.  She is a frequent pic on my fbook page and my friends all ask about her.....yes she is a member of my family

Maestro is & has been a major part of our familymily since  his first  day w/us, 7 yrs ago.;loving &  anxious to please in very wayKiss
Cali, after 4 years w/us is at last  allowing us to be part of her family.Wink At her last nail trim, the  groomer  commented that Cali dd not try to bite this time only growled a l ittle. At this moment she is curled up in the empty chair nextto my  pc desk; since   use my whelchair the desk chair remains empty for her  posession. She  now allows head rubbing& petting w/o ears presing back againt her hea( sign of fearstress.she still acts ischieviously/ destructively  when she gets ahold of a sponge or dishclothYell
No  regrets in bringing her home since her  obvious contentment  living w/ us is a joy to experience.Maestro  & Cali curl up toether on cooler  days &  nights; taking turns accepting  small treats from our plates: pieces  of  fish; poultry  or  other meats; not enough to  ruin appetites; just enoughto  enjoy the luxury of sharing mealtimes w/ humans; who serve very little other purpose in their lives.Smile

Our cat chose us.  Our neighbor inherited him and really didn't want him, but he kept visiting us so my boyfriend and I took him in as ours.  We have no children and are in our 30s and 40s so they really aren't in the cards, but I do refer to my boyfriend as daddy when I am talking to George (the cat).  He has been a blessing to us and we really love having him around.

I have a yorkie and she is the spoiled little baby of the family. I don't think a home is complete unless it has a pet.

Live a Sweet Life

My dog's are definitely very spoiled members of our family.I have to wrap all their gifts.I got a great deal on milk bones ( 6 boxes ) which they love.i paid 2 / $ 3.Watch sales and coupons you can save big on their goodies too! Along with other things,toys and new sweaters.Everything will be wrapped it's a riot watching them tear the wrapping off.They are my Angels.

Janet, your Pug is so gosh darn cute.  I can't imagine anyone turning you away for a visit if you had Cushla with you.

Todd, welcome I suggest that you post your request for a chicken recipe in another location....I don't do frying of chicken just baking so I can't help you out.  Try Food Network or All Recipes for some good recipes if you don't get any here..
