I am a week early for Valentines, but my heart is a-flutter. Look what I found today.
Aren't they adorable?
They were in a pet shop in a mall (please don't start me on the whole dogs-in-glass-cages-pet-shops debate) but OMG, these were two female bundles of pure cute-ness.
They are Wheaton Terriers probably crossed with something else, and for just a few seconds, I was seriously contemplating scooping them up and stealing them.
My pockets just weren't quite big enough and, as it transpires, they definitely weren't deep enough!
Do you know how much these babies were selling for? $1580. Each.
Who the heck would pay that for a dog? Or should I say who the heck would pay that for a pet shop hound with no background checks and history?
But just look at that little face ... you'd be tempted too, no? Sigh.
And that's what the pet shop counts on.
Cuteness equal profit!
Smudge has just looked over my shoulder and growled something incomprehensible to me - he was probably commenting on how pretty they were, do you think?
Funny, he's just turned a delicate shade of green.
