My Three Dogs

As I've mentioned before, I have three dogs.

Evie, the mini-Aussie:

Charlie, my regular-sized Aussie:

And Sophie, my part-rat-terrier-part-neighbor's-dog cross:

Since I have no children, my dogs basically are my kids, and they act like it. They know how to put on the "look." You know, the one you can't resist.

Help me, Rhonda.

They love to go places with me, but unlike human kids, they never ask if we're there yet.

Yes, that's poor Charlie being used as a booster-seat.

My "kids" like to play outside, too.

Of course I think kids today don't play outside as much with video games being so prevalent. I don't have to worry about that with these kids--they lack opposable thumbs.

And even though I don't have a family, in the traditional sense of the word, I think of these three as part of my family.

I can't imagine my life without them.

Somehow having someone look at me like this makes my life just that much better....

You know- when I was 28-30 I desperately wanted a baby. Then I hit 31 and the urge was gone. All my friends talk about all the hoops they have to jump through for their kids: whole weekends taken up for tournaments, lessons, bake sales... I decided I don't need that. I'll take the four-legged furries over the two-legged hairless any day.

I have 2 furbabies and I love them except at 4am when they wake me up... LOL. But sometimes they are the best to have :)

They are adorable and good company. I have two Aussies, Murphy and Maggie (brother and sister a year apart).They keep me laughing...most of the time.

Amen to this post! I love your pictures and your kids are adorable. I don't have two legged kids either so my critters are my kids. I had 3 labs who were my heart & soul. Sadly I lost all of them within 2 years of each other and I still mourn each day for them. I miss them so very much. I do have my Buddy and he is spoiled now that he is an only child ;)
