My Fur Babies

Lucy, Debbie’s dog from Debbiedoos, invited all the pets out in blogland over for a party.
So I thought Oscar and Patton should join in and have some fun.

We don’t have any kids yet but we have two, VERY SPOILED, fur babies.
I’ve mentioned them on here a few times but here’s a closer look at our wild boys.

Soon-to-be 4 yr old Wire Hair Fox Terrier

He is our fluffy bundle of energy!
We were living in VA and decided we wanted a dog. Looked at the SPCA and in the paper and then found a breeder selling these puppies in N.C. There were 4 of them left and they were already 4 mths old so they were selling the puppies for half price.
We drove down on July 3rd and fell in love!
His original name was Guns, the breeder was a big Guns n Roses fan, (yes there was a sister named Roses but she was already sold), but on the ride home we decided to name him Oscar.
Not sure why… Guns works now b/c this dog is SOLID muscle!

Travis deployed a month after we got Oscar. But that didn’t put a damper on their relationship. He is totally a daddy’s boy! TOTALLY!
He gets all sad when Travis travels. As soon as he hears or sees him come home, he is jumping at the door with his favorite toy ready to play. He loves to lay in his daddy’s lap too.

He sleeps in the most random places. Places a dog shouldn’t lay but there is no stopping him. His favorite spot during the day is on top of the back of our loveseat. In our old house, it was the back of one of two chairs.

He can play, and play, and play some more. Oscar LOVES to play! He has come close to completely passing out before but he doesn’t care. He just wants to play!

And his tennis ball is his DRUG! Even snow covered, this is his most favorite thing, next to dad of course, and will drop anything if he hears the word Ball out of your mouth.

He’s my wild child.
Gotten into a lot of trouble and I am pretty sure has prepared us for having a real kid! lol
But he is just so darn cute! ๐Ÿ™‚

Our two year old Gray and White tabby kitty

Patton joined our family in Nov. of 2008. Travis returned from Iraq and I told him that I needed a cat (I’m a cat person) and he agreed. So off to the SPCA we went and there he was, big ears and all!
His name was originally Hector. How awful for this poor kitty and we knew we would change it immediately! We played with him for a few minutes and I was in LOVE. Papers signed and off we went.

We decided on the name Patton on the car ride home. He reminded Travis of a desert fox with his big ears and that reminded him of General Patton so then we had a name. (Gotta love being married to an Army guy. lol)

He is definitely a momma’s boy! We have conversations in the morning. He follows me around the house and loves to lay in my lap.

He is my snuggle buddy. This happens in our house ALL THE TIME! There are numerous times a day that this picture is reenacted. Computer in lap since I’m working or blogging or anything else really and Patton either snuggled on my chest or in the crook of my arm.

Patton has the BEST personality! We joke that we couldn’t have picked a better cat and he fits in so well. He’s sneaky, frisky, lovable, and SO FRIENDLY. He’ll greet people at the door when they come over and wrestles with Oscar like a dog.

He’s definitely grown into those big ears! He has the SOFTEST fur! I’ve never felt a cat so soft. Even people that come visit say the same thing.
He had some health issues in the beginning and some of them still haunt him but he’s my baby and he knows it!!

I love my boys! They get along SO well! We are so amazed! They love to chase each other and wrestle and snuggle together as well.

We couldn’t have asked for better animals to make our little family.

    Love your furbabies! They look so cute together. Oscar must of been a hoot growing up? Terriers are noted for that. 8>)

    They are both so cute!!! I was so surprised by the overwhelming party of pets!! I think there was a great need for that party!

    I miss my cat that we had until she was 20 years old. She liked to snuggle too. I can say I don't miss the cat hair problem, though! You really do get attached to them like family!
