2+1+3+1 = madness

“We are all worms.  But I believe that I am a glow-worm.”

-Sir Winston Churchill


Hello Gorgeous!  I swear I SWEAR I am back back.  And that’ll be the last time I’ll be gone for an extended period of time.  (Hopefully)

So let’s see.  I’ve been in school and it’s nuts but great.  I’ve been annoying Husband talking about everything I’m learning again.  He’s a good sport though and placates me most of the time….

But on to the big news!  We added a new family member to our house! Meet Winston!too damn cute

He is just awesome.  And we love him.  He was born 2 Mar 2010 and that makes him 15 weeks old.  He is another Weimaraner just like Amelia.

For those of you just joining us… let me refresh you on our furry family.

Our first-born is Amelia.  She is 6 years old.  She is Husband’s second best friend and a totally spoiled rotten princess.

princess... spoiled rottenThen there are the cats….all three of them.

well hello there....and Kitty


So anyways… We’ve been having fun over at Chez Amok.  Puppy life doesn’t always lend itself real well to studying.  Which is why I’d say I’ve been less than participatory in life in general lately and why this post isn’t as eloquent as usual.  But Amelia and Winston have been getting along like they’ve always been together which helps with any growing pains that could come up.

always togetherIt’s actually kinda funny… we went to PetSmart the other day to buy animal food (which we always seems to be almost out of) and I had Winston over in the collar aisle and Husband had Amelia looking at food….Winston who apparently can’t function without Amelia started baby barking looking for Amelia.  And from all the way across the store I hear one Amelia bark (which was awesome since Amelia hardly ever barks!) as almost to say “I’m here don’t worry” and the Winston stopped.  Craziness huh?

Onto school.Too much homework.  Too little time.  Too much memorization and not enough space.  Husband laughs that I’m even more scatterbrained than usual and I tell him that he can laugh all the way to the bank eventually because despite the fact that I’ll be the oldest med student ever, all the nonsense will be worth it to finally be Dr. Amok.

Right now is pharmacology.  Loving the pharmacology.  Not loving the grueling study schedule but I am always amazed how just a few chemicals can alter your life!  Those who’ve done fertility drugs can attest to that.  Despite the fact it didn’t work for us I remember being awed at how Clomid made me feel like a 13 year old girl with the crazy hormones and acne etc.  Amazing.  Truly.

Anyways…. I really have to go back to studying.

Anxiolytics, Barbiturates, and Analgesics.  Oh My!!

So tell me about your animals…. I’m always curious to see how other people feel about their animals.  Or are we the only weird ones with dogs who take the place of children.

  1. I wanted to wish you a big “welcome back” to the blogosphere! I audibly gasped when I saw your post in my Google Reader 😉
    Your new addition is just adorable! On the topic of my animals, I love them like they are my children. I say “they” but I actually lost my 7 yr. old Dachshund last month. It was traumatic, I’m still not over it or ready to talk about it, but he was like my son. I blogged about it but anyway.

    Again,welcome back.

  2. My dog is my child. It’s ridiculous, really. I talk to her like she will answer me and she sleeps in bed close to, nix that, ON my face. My little furball runs my life. I’m glad to hear that I’m not the only one who loves their animals this much!

  3. You have such sweet furbabies. Winston is such a beautiful boy. I don’t think there is anything wrong with the way you feel about your animals. All of mine are definitely a part of my family.


  4. Congratulations on your new addition. My dog will be 8 in september and she will always be my first baby.

  5. How cute are your dogs! I can’t wait to get out of our apartment so that we can fill it with dogs!

    Welcome back to the wonderful world of blogging.

  6. I think pets are a godsend! My DH always says that our dog saved our marriage and our minds from falling victim to vile infertility! So, no you are not weird.

  7. oh my gosh your furry family is possibly the most beautiful one Ive ever seen! I adore weimeraners and your kitties are adorable! We dont have any pets right now – but we have had many cats, turtles, frogs, birds and foster dogs over the years. Cant wait until we are in a house where we can include our furry friends again 🙂

  8. Your pets are simply adorable. And what a special bond your two dogs already share! Happy ICLW 🙂

  9. Popping over from ICLW! I happen to be completely smitten with all 8 pounds of my little yorkie, Bear! He is pretty much the life of my party! If only someone would pay me to play with him all day we would live in our own little world! So, no, friend, you are are not alone!! Have a happy weekend and study hard, but not too hard!

  10. Hi!

    We have 2 cats and 2 dogs. The dogs are cavalier king charles spaniels and they belong to the cats…..

  11. I am not sure if my last post went through as my computer crashed 😦

    We have 2 cavalier king charles spaniels and 2 cats, one black & one white. They’re definitely our furbabies!

  12. Love the new addition! We are a family of one dog and three cats and they are our lives! Actually, been thinking about dog #2 lately!

    Our pets take the place of our children, for now. Though, when we get our son (adoption in Vietnam), they will still be our furbabies!

    No question pets can be loved as much as humans!

  13. We have three cats and we love them like they are our children. Love the pics!! Thank you for sharing them with us.

  14. Your animals are all so sweet! I love the Petsmart story. I wish I could say the same about my dogs but unfortunately they’re not so in love! Best wishes to you!
