Laughter Lives Tuesday...

Laughter LivesThis post is part of "Laughter Lives! Tuesday" on the Riggs Family Blog. Check our their blog to read everyone else's "Laughter Lives!" posts.

This is my first time to participate in Laughter Lives! Tuesday...but I got a kick out of reading The Rigg's Family's post today and I couldn't resist.

So my mom has decided that she would like to breed Imperial Shih Tzu. They are similar to regulary Shih Tzu but are the miniature version. I also must say that my mom already has FOUR dogs of her own...two Brussles Griffon, a teacup Yorkie, and a Snorkie (snauzer/yorkie mix). My mom has six Shih Tzu to breed and one of her dogs just had her first litter of three puppies. AND my sister has a dog to boot! So we are talking FOURTEEN dogs people...under one roof.

Now what's different about my mom than other dog breeders, is that all these dogs are her BABIES!! She dresses them up, she puts bows in their hair, and needless to say...every single one is SPOILED rotten!!

So what is my laughter lives???? The DH and I are on vacation and are longing for some much needed rest and relaxation. But do you know what happens at 6:45 a.m. every single day? My dad goes to work and ALL the puppies "wake up" at that time...which means, FOURTEEN dogs barking at the same time. Needless to say, mom gave us a box fan to put in our room to help drown out the noise....all I can say about this is HA!!!! One box fan, FOURTEEN dogs barking, you do the math????

My MIL has 2 big dogs and she has a Silkie terrier. she bred the Silkie with a Yorkie and got 4 puppies. She was going to sell the puppies! That was almost 2 years ago and she still has all but one and that one went to her granddaughter! So when you go to her house it's a dog barking fiasco!

I feel your pain. We live next door to my aunt & uncle who have 14 dogs in the house and 20 more outside! We hear barking all the time. :) It's fortunate that we really like dogs.
