Oh boo hoo. Yup, I’m getting all choked up again because I’m back to eliminate some foxy lady pooches and it’s harder than catching a squirrel (those buggers are fast). So to anyone who is eliminated this round (or in future rounds for that matter) please know that I still consider you to be my girl, and you can snuggle up to me anytime.
But on to this week’s question. I asked all of my top five furry girls this poignant question: Since being in a relationship with someone also includes their parent(s), I’d love to hear about how you get along with your mom and/or dad. Are they protective? Suspicious? Generous with table scraps? Partial to tan chihuahuas? Tell me all about my possible future in-laws! Here’s what my fabulous four-leggers had to say on the subject…
#6. Bella said: Oh Burger, I know you and my parents would get along so well! My dad (his name is Joshua) has a ton of energy and always plays with me. He used to work in construction, but after college decided to go into real estate. My mom (her name is Mallory) is the one I’m most protective over. I make sure nobody hurts her and in return she snuggles me. My mom’s job is in politics and for fun she comes home and helps people design rooms in their homes. See, I think you’d get along with them just fine… they love houses, playing, and cuddling. Mom and dad are actually the ones who showed me your picture for the first time and boy was I ever in love. I’m quite positive you’re the only dog my parents would be okay with- they love me a whole lot and don’t trust just any pup!
#11. Stella said: My parents and I are really close. I’m very cuddly (wink, wink) so they let me up on the couch when I need to nap or watch TV, and they sometimes allow me to crawl into their bed in the middle of the night to keep warm. They are such dog lovers that there is no doubt in my mind they would adore you like I do! I can’t wait for you to join me in the kitchen to look for falling food while mom cooks. I’ve won them over with my charm and cuteness, so they pretty much let me do whatever. On a side note, I’ll have you know that I’m a very good girlfriend, Burger. I’ll even watch sports with you. How many cute girls can say that?
#14. Juno said: Your potential future in-laws are DEFINITELY partial to tan chihuahuas. They LOVE to take me to the dog park, and while I’m off having a good run I’ve noticed that they really like playing with any of the other dogs there. They are certainly protective of me, but since they’re trying to help me come out of my shell they always let me introduce myself to any other pooches we meet. One thing I do think you should know: my parents make me wear sweaters too. I know you’re not a huge fan. I’m not either, which is why I always manage to wriggle out them (even the tight ones – HA!) but I must say they do keep me warm. Plus my mom actually knitted me a sweater so it fits perfectly! She might make one for you if you send me the measurement around your chest. And I’m not just trying to get that info for myself, honest. Really. It’s for my mom. I swear.
#15. Nico said: I LOVE MY PARENTS! They are the coolest parents in our neighborhood! Some kids hate their parents when they are our age and they become so rebellious, but not me! I can tell them everything (even when I need to go potty). They are open minded and love tan chihuahuas. Sometimes when my daddy makes hamburgers, he makes a little one just for me! I’m sure he won’t mind making one for you too! They are very protective over me and sometimes they act suspicious, but usually only when I’ve told a little white lie (like when my dad has already fed me dinner and I tell my mommy that I haven’t eaten yet! hehe). My folks are the greatest. They tell me all the time: “once you go chihuahua, you never go back!”
#22. Coco said: This is a great question since I hear in-laws are something many couples fight over, and the only thing I want to fight with you about is who our future puppies will resemble more. My parents are my BFFs. I follow them around and never leave them alone. They think this is because I miss them, but really I just want to make sure they’re not sneaking snacks without me. And oh how they spoil me- I sleep in the bed, get the occasional table scrap, and sometimes even get carried up the stairs (have you seen this body? I’m like a cinderblock walking on toothpicks- stairs are bad for my joints!). My mom knows all the best scratching spots and my dad is super fun to chase frantically around the house. Believe me, with your devastatingly handsome looks, you’re a shoo-in for some sweet in-law loving. If all else fails, just do that paw over the eyes look and trust me, you’ll get a treat in no time.
So there you have all of the lovely ladies who make me want to meet the parents. Here’s hoping it goes smoother than that Ben Stiller movie. But unfortunately the time has come for me to announce the two lucky finalists who will be moving on to the last round. Again, it was incredibly hard to eliminate any of you wonderful lovebirds and I hope that we meet again (maybe at the movies or in the grocery store?). Mom read all the answers very carefully and evenly out loud and just waited to see which ones really got my attention. And I did what I could to pick a pair of pooches that seem the most compatible with little ol’ me- I promise! So without further ado, I present the two remaining ladies who make me want to bring them home to my mom and dad:
- #14. Juno
- #15. Nico
Whew. And I’m spent. That never fails to be emotionally exhausting. Seriously, it’s no fun to lose any of you pretty pooches. Sniffle. But I’m one step closer to finding my true soul mate. Any remaining favorites that you guys want to cheer on? Any ideas about what my last big question should be for these two sexy little four-leggers? Do tell. And stay tuned for the final “episode” of the bachelor coming next week…
