Shotgun Wednesday

Hey, it's Rosie again with the second part of my exciting news!

So you know that I Y Petey and Petey Ys me and we are getting married, right? Wrong!! WE ARE MARRIED ALREADY....we eloped! As soon as I accepted Petey's proposal he sent AireRuby to whisk me off to Old London Town for a small private ceremony, it was so romantic *sigh* hehe....oh, we're so happy, no wonder i'm blushing! Photos to follow....

Well, eversince we met, Petey and I have talked about our plans for the future....you know, pups etc....and before we go any further with this post, for those of you who are wondering....

...well it's Petey of course!

But my poor Petey is not quite the doggy for the job, if you know what I mean. Now, we know we're like the Brad and Ange of the canine world but we decided against adopting a Cambodian orphan....then we had a bright idea....a surrogate Dad....of course....a sperm donor! So a while ago we approached this handsome fella....(it's my flatmate Alfie)....purely in his capacity as a donor, you understand!

Now, it was a bit of a rush....all of a sudden I was in season and had to just get the job done....married or not.....(even Asta couldn't plan a wedding with that little notice!) and now....ta-daaa! I am going to have puppies!

"But how could you?" I hear you ask? "What about poor Petey's feelings? And Mason Dixie?"

Well, a lady never tells, but in the interests of sparing others' feelings....

We are over the moon! Me, Petey, Alfie, Mason Dixie....AND all our Mums! It's so exciting!

I just had to phone all my friends and tell them the news....of course my first call was to Amber-Mae who has just had seven gorgeous puppies.....then I phoned Asta to ask if it's appropriate for a lady in my condition to get married in a veil....Lorenza to see if she did a line in maternity wear....and all my other girlfriends....blimey, my phone bill will be bigger than me!

Maybe I should stick to text and email!

One thing's for sure.....there'll be none of these for me for the next few weeks....i'll have to switch to Sweetheart Stout (medicinal)

I've already got a bit of a waddle going on, don't know how many are in there...but we're hoping for more than one and less than a baker's dozen!

Oh, and don't worry....Petey and I will have a proper ceremony and a huge pawty for all our friends and family after the puppers are born, they are due on Independence Day!
So with all the excitement of the last couple of days we still haven't caught up with everyone....we'll get there soon....but tomorrow (Thursday) we are going to meet another blog friend....have a guess....he has a cork hat!

Eric said...

Crickey Rosie, I knew you shouldn't take your walkies behind the bike shed!!!

But oooohhhh little Petey Puppers??? I mean Alfie's the handsome dude, what a lovely litter that will be!!!

Wiry wags of happiness for the extended family!! Eric xxx

Amber-Mae said...

Rosie! Congratulations! I am so happy for you. Your hubby is so steamy handsome. Oh, I'd lovvvvve to help you out if you need anything or any info. Yes, about the Whelping box we talking about on the phone, well it's mainly made out of PVC poles, lots of tape & i-don't-know-what-you-call-those cardboard-thingies. It's a plastic board. Don't know if they sell it in your country or not but they aren't very cheap. The process of making it is major hardwork! Mommy & Hooman M worked on it all day all night. And the problem with my Whelping box is, it is flimsy. The puppies have pushed down the sliding door & escaped many many many times till Mommy's head almost exploded! So I suggest, you don't make like ours. Some people will make it out of wooden boards. I think that's the best. There are many websites that show you how to make whelping box. You'll need a strong sturdy one because once the puppies are able to walk they will ram against the box.

Wow Rosie! You and your Mum sure kept that quiet. Though Mum did have a sneaky feeling about it.

You and Petey (and Alfie) will make great parents!!
~lickies, Ludo

britny said...

Stanislaw said...

Well now, you are certainly a busy gal! I hear that pregger pups get to feast for 10... enjoy it!

A million congrats to you all!

The Army of Four said...

So THIS is why our mom wants to move to Scotland?!!? Ha! You know she's crazy over Beagles!!!

Play bows,
PS: Tuesday, we finally posted about our package from you all!

Rosie, Rosie...

I am a trained student nurse, my dear Girlie...I am pawfectly capable to look after the little dears...as for knitting woolie bloomers, I have no idea what you dogs are talkin' bout in ur chattie box....disposable diapers work, don't they???

As for me DATING THE BOY PUPS...well...

Not until they're at least 8 weeks old and fully weaned...

(what does that nursin' do to your figure???????)

Stan and Scruff have offered to help ya, but I think they're both completely incapable......

Barks, my sweet Rosie...


Do you need a smoothie mixed up for mornin' sickness or anything?????????

Kess And Her Mama said...

Come by and collect your award dear Rosie and pals!

Carolina said...

Oh WOW!!!!! That is so exciting. Oh, and you don't have to wait 11 months like I had to for our Evie. Oh gosh. Wonderful news. Petey is a very generous husband and he will be a very sweet father I think.
Personally I think Alfie is a hunk, so the pups will no doubt be gorgeous and irresistable.

Congratulations and a very big hug from all of us here ;-)

Maggie and Mitch said...
