Exclamation Shaddupayaface!

Mini rant.

I put something about loving Fred on my Facebook, as we had picked him up from the vets... And my brother just replied with 'poor Bodhi'... And someone else jumped on it too.

I haven't made it public on my Facebook about Fred's op for LOTS of reasons, but it really irked me. He's been laid on the floor in lots if pain and groggy from the anaesthetic

I don't have a favourite, but Fred is 8 months old and we've been worried for the last 2 months about him... I take lots of pics of him as he's growing and I have LITERALLY 1000s of Bodhi (she's 8 this year remember!!!!!). And he's new and novel and its exciting! Of course I'm going to rave about him he's gorgeous!

It doesn't mean I don't love Bodhi! She's perfect

Just annoyed me that I'd have to justify myself.....

Not sure if I'm just being over sensitive!

Yeah, I got some of the same stuff when I got Blaze. It's so silly. *shakes head* Yes, now that I've got a new dog, I totally like new dog more.

It's just....such skewed logic. O.o

Yes. I talk about him more on my Facebook, as I have more to say about him. Maybe after 8 years I will stop....

I did just respond with if we are using that logic, it's my other half who needs to be worried (I rarely post about him on Facebook, and the only pics I tag him in are ones of the dogs ).

He just said people should mind their own business.... I agree.

I regularly get the same about poor Arnold. It's very annoying.

People have said that to me about Zobby... and I'm like, he's not my dog. It still does bother me, though; I'm right there with you.

Sometimes I get that about Moses.

When it comes down to it, he's just a lower maintenance dog. In comparison to Cali, he requires quite a bit less exercise and since he doesn't usually like to play, he just appreciates a walk with us when the weather isn't too hot for him. Definitely just as loved as Cali, just for different reasons. I always refer to him as my old man, although I'd like to believe he isn't turning twelve this month. I remember being six years old and my parents brought home dog supplies one day, and being as young as I was, I didn't realize we were getting a dog until a woman stopped by with puppies.

So people that post a bunch of newborn baby pictures/updates without the EXACT number of new pictures and updates of their other children also love the new baby more?

How ridiculous.
Some dogs are more high maintenance, some less camera shy, some are very new, some sick, some do less ridiculous things which might give one dog more "public appearance" time.. but that certainly doesn't mean you love one more than the other.

I got this about Kiba when I got Stryder... but now with five no one really says anything though sometimes family bring it up that the "originals" (the schnauzers) are replaced by younger models.

My mum also goes on because I once mentioned I don't have as strong as bond with Stryder and Tsuki than the other three, and she hems and haws over Stryder being unloved and omg... it's just so annoying!!
