Start the tattoo thread! We've got a good 30+ tattoos in this house, so I could maybe post a picture or two :laughing:

...and yeah, that's the doggie daddy. He claimed to hate dogs when I first took Basil and Streets, but now he's all about cuddling them, tucking them in a night and generally acting like a giant dog geek.

So is Nelly allowed to date yet? Streets likes his ladies large :laughing:
Actually, the last lady dog he really loved was an Irish Wolf Hound, so I'm not even making that up.

The pathetic look is what Basil's all about. This is how our walks usually go: We get half a block away from home when I hear some sort of high pitched screeching. It's some lady freaking out over the matching dogs in boots. Basil, ever the gentleman, must go meet his newest friend, so he wiggles over to the screaming woman, looks up at her with his big brown eyes and then gently rubs his face against her while letting out some sort of pathetic whine/sigh/cry noise. The lady proceeds to melt, perhaps thinking he is desperately hungry or severely abused, rubs his head, coos into his ear all the while completely ignoring me or Streets as we stand there waiting for Basil to finish his well practiced routine.

When it's all over we continue on our way only the repeat the whole thing on the next block. :yell:

Basil is actually named Basil for a not so nice reason :o

When I decided to keep them I kept trying to come up with names but could only think of really, really cheesy ones like Salt and Pepper or....actually I can't even remember the others, but they were really bad.

So one day I go to the store and leave the dogs at my sisters thinking they'll be fine for 5 minutes. By the time I got back Basil had taken my sister's huge basil plant, ripped it up, placed sections of it, with roots and dirt attached, all over the house including on people's beds. He was laying there nibbling on the leaves looking very proud of himself, so I figured he'd earned himself the name:laughing:

Streets got his name because we were referring to both of them as Streets because that's where they were found, so it just stuck.

:lovestruck: :lovestruck: Definitely the most handsome doggies on the Main. Every time a brindle dog/dogs walked by the storefront today, my son asked if they were pitgrrl's pups....I said, "No hon, she doesn't walk her boys naked." :laughing:

Btw pitgrrl, tell their Dad to hide the 'paiement directe' machine at his shop; I'm gonna try to stop by tomorrow if I can get off early enough :goodvibes: . For someone who hates shopping, I go :crazy: when it comes to the dogs :o .

Really?? You guys don't know me so well yet :laughing: .

Do you own hot pink sweat pants with "Sexy" written on the bum? Do you carry a Louise Vitton dog carrier with a psychotic Chi inside? Perhaps you own a Range Rover that you don't believe needs to follow traffic laws because you're just too fabulous for all that? Are you high as a kite on some variety of prescription drugs?

Unless all that applies to you, you're normal. Dog geek-dom is perfectly normal and acceptable, encouraged even :laughing:

Um, 2 years? I'm seriously set up, thank you!
