I really wanted a little dog for my birthday. A puppy that would stay a puppy. Something small and something I could could take care of, would need me, I could control it and it would not have any big complicated problems. I planted the seed with the kids first. Georgie was all over it, researching designer purse dogs on the internet. We decided a Morkie it would be. A Morkie is half Yorkie and half Maltese and looks like a really cute stuffed animal.
I named the morkie that I didn’t get. It was going to be Jacquizz which is the awesome first name of Atlanta Falcon player Jacquizz Rodgers. Everyone thought that was a horrible name so I reconsidered and named him Sidney or Sid if he was in trouble.
Only Georgie was fully on board. Everyone else (GM and boys) pretty much thought it was the last thing in the world we needed. GM thought what I really wanted was a baby and that I ultimately would be disappointed in the pocket dog. He also pointed out we have 2 1oo+ pound German Shepherds and they might eat Sidney. That was a chance I was willing to take because I really wanted one.
Well my birthday came and went without the arrival of Sidney. And while I was sorry I didnt wake up to a puppy, I had a really great birthday. And there is always next year…..
