i {heart} faces ... pets only!


eagle with sunspots, originally uploaded by jenniferlivolson.

a beautiful eagle at our local zoo ... and a splash of sunflarish spots that appeared ... i had to enter this picture ... it was one of those moments where the sun lines up just so ... and makes a decent shot into a better shot.  couldn't replicate it if i tried. 

anyone else think it's funny that i chose to submit a picture of a non-coconutbelly pet?

because really ... living within a zoo of pets and kids should make this i {heart} faces pet challenge easy, right??

right??

except that so often ... i forget to document the pets that make our household so full of ... whatever it makes them full of.

most days ... weeks ... i am much more positive about our life with pets. this week ...after the water heater breaking down and the dog having to be brought in for emergency medical procedures ... within several hours of each other ... and the cat puke ... and the kid puke ... and of course ... a pilot husband ... that is off flying around the east coast ...

i'm not that happy with our zoo of pets.
yes ... they teach responsibility.
yes ... they lay upon my feet at night when i'm freezing cold.
yes ... they are a comfort and can sense when i'm feeling upset by something that many of the people around me can't see.

but ... holy ... $1000 later ... whew.  (and that was just the cost of the dog.) 
happy holidays! 
... we would send out holiday cards ... but the cost of the dog bills ate them.

the $100 yearly fee for the zoo membership makes this a much less expensive "pet" to have around ... although i wouldn't be so keen on letting him warm my feet at night.

check out the other fun and cute and (maybe a bit more) cuddly entries over here!

That picture is a-maz-ing!

(and I only have one dog and sometimes even that feels like a zoo...$1000! Dang I'm sorry)

Great shot and I do think it's hilarious that you picked a non-family pet. Smart move. BTW, our dog has had a few super expensive trips to the vet that turned out to be nothing. I'll ship her your way if you want.
