I hadn't seen him dance yet, but I was so confident he'd be just like all the others. Also, I was a little afraid of him.

This is either Fifi or Kiwi. Jackie painted Kiwi's nails after these were taken to tell them apart but for now their nails aren't painted so Kiwi and Fifi look a lot like each other.Ooh! A real photo! Jackie and Kiwi or Fifi...Okay. This is the moment of a thousand posts... the picture you all have been waiting for. A picture of ME. Myself. I. And Mr. Lawyer. I'm going to put some space between this text and the picture to make you suffer.
WOOO!! Go me! Now you may understand my pictures more!!
Anyway... off topic. More pictures of ME (yay me!) and Mr. Lawyer. My favorite. I guess I like him because he's unique. No other puppies are black... and his fur is so dang soft!Unfortunentally, those exact glasses were swept away by a wave on July 4th. Just ruined my whole day. I had those lenses for two years and gotten new perscriptions in it, so they had a lot of sentimental value. Actually... I got those in second grade... so... three years. :( :( :(
YAAAY PUPPIESOkay. So I have no pictures, but back to sailing.
(PS: BOINGBOINGBOING HARRY POTTER IS TODAY! BOINGBOINGBOING)
THE MAN: You ladies got your fishing poles yet?
ME: Fishing poles?
THE MAN: Why of course! This here is the James Joseph III, the greatest fishing boat in the world. Tell yuh what, since I like the looks of y'all I'm gonna let you have a bucket of bait for free.
JACQUELINE: Well that's very kind of you but we need to get off this boat, we didn't mean to.
THE MAN: Huh. *SCRATCHES HEAD* Well then, this here's a 3 hour trip. You ain't going home soon so might as well enjoy yourselves. *HOLDS OUT FISHING POLES AND BAIT*
ME: Agh! *TAKES POLE AND BAIT* But just to give you a heads up, her puppy's gonna have babies any day now and so she may have to go into labor on the deck.
THE MAN: Well, enjoy.
And he walked off. Jacqueline shrugged. We carried Rosalie out to the deck and then we dropped our lines in and waited, glancing at her for any signs of birth. We caught four fish: of which Rosalie ate them all, so she had to lie down for a while and we ate Cup a Noodles inside.
ME, SLURPING SOUP: What are we going to do?
JACQUELINE: I know. No doctor's here to help. I've heard of the mother dying before. *SNIFF*
ME, HANDING HER A HANKY: Maybe we can convince the captain to go back.
JACQUELINE, LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW: We're too far from shore. And it might disrupt the other passengers if we have to turn back around.
Suddenly, Rosalie started howling. She had hidden under one of the benches and was moaning and wouldn't come out. So we fished with a howling dog at our feet.Pretty soon Rosalie stopped from pure exhaustion. But Jackie was worried anyway, and asked me to watch her line. She didn't come back, so I reeled in our lines and went to check on her.
And I was not happy with what I saw.I was mad for Jackie sleeping on the job, so I shook her awake. The captain's voice came over the speakers and told us to reel in our lines and we were heading in. Jackie and I dashed off of the boat. I took the liberty of slapping the dude with the headphones because he was so stupid to not hear us and get us off the boat in the first place. We ran home as fast as we could.
An hour later, four puppies were born.3 boys and 1 girl.
SAD PART: Three days later, the girl died.
She had a hole in her throat so instead of into her stomach the milk went into her lungs.
RIP Saba (that's her name. Jackie's mom had a dog named Saba that got run over by a car and so they decided to name her Saba but not Jackie swears that the name is cursed)
But, the three boys are alive and healthy. The last one in the picture is the biggest, he's already a foot long! The balck one is my favorite, it's going to Jackie's 25-year-old brother. His name is Ponach Mic Lochan, or Mr. Lawyer because Jackie's brother is a lawyer.
The girl, (second from the left) Saba, had sadly been the one Jackie had wanted to keep. See, one would go to her brother, one would go to the vet, one they would keep and one they would sell. But now they are keeping Kiwi (1st one from right) and I like him well enough. I was hoping they might sell one of them to me, like Scout and Austin aren't enough dogs. But still.
PS: this post is dedicated to a dead dog. Is that wrong? No.
