The Next Ten Days

My boyfriend will be flying to Italy for ten days tonight, leaving me here in LA to take care of his pup, Chino. {Okay, I kind of called dibs on watching him the moment I heard Drew was going to be travelling for Thanksgiving. I mean, duh. I'm kind of obsessed with any and all dogs. But mainly Chino.} Can we just discuss for a moment how inexplicably happy this makes me? Sure, I'm sad Drew's leaving for ten days- BUT I GET A DOG! Talk about being on the winning end of that deal. What? He gets Italy. And I get loyal companionship in the form of a four-legged creature! I rest my case. I mean, this dog is pretty much the greatest dog ever created. He's small, yet chubby. Lazy, yet hyperactive. And he's always either sleeping, whining for attention or breathing heavily. I mean, I hate to say it- but those are kind of my three states of existence, too. We've got a lot in common, me and Chino. Seriously, even though I'm supremely bummed my boyf will be out of town for ten days, getting to cuddle and spend hours upon hours with this little pup will soften the blow a bit.

Before I pick up Chino tonight, I wanted to share a few of my favorite snapshots of him from the past couple months. I'm fully aware that by the end of these ten days, my memory card will be completely full with puppy pictures. I'm just accepting this fact and trying to prepare myself for an overabundance of puppy love. This blog will probably just be called An Ode to Chino by next Saturday. Brace yourselves.

I admire any chubby creature whose main goal in life is to fit into small, confined spaces. Little dude, we're going to have a fun Thanksgiving break together. {Related: how much turkey is too much turkey to feed a dog? LOLJK- I'm buying Chino his own deep fried turkey, obvi. YOLO.}
