Wordy Wednesday – Turning My Husband into a Dog Lover

My husband cares for our dogs, but he doesn’t love them like I do. The only dogs he ever had were outside guard dogs. So Sephi and Maya were a unique experience for him. When we got married, it took some time for him to get used to the dogs living in the house with us. The dogs are still not allowed on the furniture, but he no longer gets grossed out when he accidentally eats a dog hair or if there is a fur dust bunny floating around on the floor. Having Maya and Pierson indoors is second nature to him now. However, he still doesn’t interact with them as much as I do. But I have caught him playing with or petting them every now and then. Maya and Pierson are really making progress with him, don’t you think? 🙂

Husband Li Xi and the Dogs

Caught in the act! Whatever cuteness Maya and Pierson exhibited this morning caused my husband to bend down and give Maya and Pierson an unexpected belly rub.

    Leave it to two sweethearts to soften your other sweetheart’s heart! 😉

    You can only resist the cuteness for so long before it gets you.

    When you aren’t raised with dogs, it is understandable that it takes a while for their charms to work on you. But sooner or later, the dogs are sleeping on the bed 😉

    I agree with Taryn, dogs are wonderful creatures 🙂

    Haha! Looks like they are turning him into a dog lover! Josh is the same way. He cares about Ace, but he does not give him constant affection and attention like I do. He probably wouldn’t have a dog if it weren’t for me. In fact, I know he wouldn’t.

    When I first moved down here, it took my hubby some time to get used to Kissy being an indoor dog. But he ended up shedding tears 10 years later when we had to let her go to wait for us at the bridge.

    I didn’t grow up with dogs at all, but my hubby did. He had to talk me into getting our first dog, but it didn’t take long before I was totally hooked! I don’t think I even realized how hooked I was until our first dog, Shelby, was diagnosed with lymphoma at only 6 years old. Her loss was devastating, and we were dog-less for about 4 months, but will never be without a dog (or two, or three) again!
    Your hubby is just a little slower, but it sounds like he’s getting there!

    They are irresistible.
