drama dog


skirt: Hollister, sweater: Gap Maternity, shoes: Tory Burch


JJ, Cleo and i enjoyed a nice sunny saturday outside. JJ and his friend spent the day building a garden shed. i sat outside in a rocking chair and finished the 50 shades series (verdict: so addicting and steamy--but Ana got kind of annoyingly whiney and insecure for my taste). and when his friend left, JJ worked into the afternoon and evening all by himself, shouting at the pieces and working very hard. it is now a standing structure with a roof (!!!) very exciting. 

Cleo obviously cannot go one week without some kind of drama...and on saturday she once again saw her life flash before her eyes. she was hanging out with JJ outside while he built, and squeezed her little self in the tiny hole in the neighbor's fence. where she found herself face-to-face with a pitbull. JJ ran to the neighbor's house where the owner assured him that his pitbull would never hurt Cleo, and when JJ went out to his yard, poor little nugget was getting mauled by the nasty dog. JJ had to wrestle the pitbull to the ground so Cleo could escape. the owner was shocked and embarrassed, but c'mon man, like you have a pitbull, it's in their nature to be violent. JJ carried crying Cleo all the way home where she was babied with treats and love. honestly though, with all that drama, she could be the star of (Dog) Days of our Lives. 

JJ and i went to What to Expect When You're Expecting on Friday and it was hilar. HILAR. there were a handful of pregnant ladies in the theater, and we all smiled at each other knowingly and laughed our asses off when HPFs attacked one of the characters at a most inopportune moment. there was also a part where one of the characters talks about being afraid of getting stuck on her back, and i was like OMG I HAVE THAT FEAR! I HAVE THE FEAR THAT I WILL BE ALL ALONE IN THE HOUSE AND GET STUCK ON MY BACK! LIKE A BEETLE! AND NOT BE ABLE TO GET UP. such a scary scenario. i feel like i might need one of those life call alert necklace things from that infomercial with the old lady who falls on the ground and no one is there to save her. 

anyway, JF is still corked up in there. happy monday.

  1. It is not in the nature of a pit bull to be aggressive, and it is extremely offensive to me, a loyal reader of your blog, that you would write something like that. Clearly the owner of this particular dog is not doing their job. I own a pit bull who is a registered "canine good citizen" and she is the most friendly dog around.

  2. AmandaK: i'm sure your dog is very nice. however, i have yet to come across a pit bull who doesn't scare the shit out of me or Cleo. i suppose pit bulls have a bit of a bad rap. i am sorry to have offended you.

  3. Amanda K. I would just like to say that this is a blog about Lacie's life and how she journeys it. She shouldn't have to tailor her daily experiences and be concerned of other people's opinions because people like you have a different outlook on what they should do or say.

    Just some words of advice-If you are that kind of person that thinks everyone should write a blog according to the standards that only you agree on, then I would suggest discontinuing your use of the internet because the world just isn't like that.

    Lacie I thought your post was awesome today, keep it up!!!

  4. @Cordelia See, I second that opinion!

    Honestly, AmandaK, why do you think pitbulls have this reputation? I'm sorry, but the dog attacked her dog! The opinion is valid, as is yours, however this is her blog...

  5. @Cordelia See and @Swol, well said.

    @AmandaK: L's opinion is based on experience, as is yours. Differing opinions should be embraced rather than attacked, or regarded as offensive. If you're a loyal reader of L's blog then you are well aware that she is a straight shooter, and tells it how she sees it, which she is entitled to given that this is her blog.

  6. To be fair, pit bulls were originally bred to be "nanny dogs" and to take care of and protect children. My pit bull is my service dog and she is the sweetest and most chill baby in the world! I think it ALL in how you raise them, personally I've never met a poodle that hasn't tried to take my hand off, lol. But there's really no point in fighting about it...Internet drama is the worst! On a side note, L - I love your blog and can't wait to see LF! Hope Miss Cleo is okay!!!!

    Can't wait for baby photos!

  8. I have two pitbulls who although they are awesome with other pets and love people (even the meow that lives upstairs who they love to torment by chasing him around because he hates them to death) when im face to face with someone elses pit i still get nervous. Unfortunately as good as they can be they are a breed that's hard to trust. Even still....golden retrievers and labs are considered "aggresssive breeds"....its all a matter of opinion and your allowed yours!!
