Living as Three Pitties in the City

Miss Bessie Belle fits so seamlessly into our Two Pitties in the City household. She requires very little maintenance, never had an accident in the house and she loves laying around the house as much as I do. We love spending countless hours together just hanging out on the floor and napping the day away.
I now feel like we have a his, his and hers dog. Though A is always convincing me into fostering, she is also the one that is convincing me that we can only be a two dog (plus one foster) household.
A reminds me that our income and our time can only properly raise two pooches, and it is nice that we can provide a foster pooch a warm home with plenty of love and food until they find their perfect home. Because of all these reasons, I do understand why we will can only be Two Pitties in the City with the occasional foster.
Now, I'm just wondering if anyone would notice if we swapped out a brindle American Bulldog mix with a white American Bulldog mix.
It could be Two Pitties in the City, chronicling the adventures of Mr. B and Miss B.

Ha! Daniel has told me that he's fine with us adopting one of our fosters...as long as we're swapping Rufus out...you two are funny guys!

Elizabeth said...

I hope you covered Ms M's ears when you made that comment! Poor darling...she can come live with me in Canada, any day! :)

I hate to tell you but that baby has some Boxer in her. We have two and they are the laziest two dogs in the world! She is a sweet sweet girl and I would give her a home on a heartbeat if we didn't already have too also. Thank you for loving that baby! It will be so wonderful when she finds her forever home!

aw! we currently can't foster any but soon hope to be a two dog plus one foster dog household once we move.

i think it is wonderful that y'all have opened your home to a foster baby :)

Liz said...

We'd notice!

Oh poor Miss M! Also I don't think her mommy would approve of the swap. Before my sister got married her then boyfriend said, "me or the dog?" and she said, "don't make me pick because it won't be you". I thought that was hilarious and now that I have Luna I really do see how strong the bond is between a single girl and her dog. :)

I hope Miss M doesn't read this. :-P

I think after Levi's energy, Bessie Bell is a nice change of pace (sleepier cuddle bunny pace) for your household. You two are amazing to foster these pups and give them the love and care they need before going to their perfect "furever" home.

ha - we said that two dogs ago. now we are four doggies in the burbs.

Daisy Dog said...

Aww Miss B! How about Two Pitties and Miss B! We love your blog! We haven't been commenting like a "good" reader, but read every post. You guys are great.

Noooo! Poor Ms. M. :(

Agree re: boxer in Bessie. She looks a lot like my Pork Chop, who is a boxer/pit mix. When I adopted him, they tried to tell me he was a French Mastiff/boxer mix, and I said "Have you never SEEN a pit bull? That dog is definitely a pit." I know that they have a hard time moving the pitties, but that's what I wanted, so I just laughed it off. Anyway, I couldn't quite figure out what he was mixed with but I have a friend who has a boxer/pit mix, and she looks a lot like Chops, so that's what I've settled on. Bessie has that same scrunchie face and seems to have the same sweet laid back disposition too. Lucky you (and whoever adopts her)!

The Heartbeats said...

Oh I think all of your pups have some Boxer in them. As mom to 2 Boxers, I feel completely educated on the topic! :) Well, maybe they can just take their sweet time finding Miss Bessie a home. You may need to make up some excuses along the way like she can't go now because the teepee fell on her and she has developed an irrational fear of teepees so she needs rehab. Teepee rehab could take years...

I WOULD NOTICE!!

goosie mama said...

Being financially responsible for pups (especially 3!) is a big burden, but i just don't know. Miss Bessie Belle just seems like the absolute sweetest thing ... !

Emily said...

Last time I came home and Jay said to me, "You know what I was thinking while I was cuddling with Madden? Something we should never do?"
I said, "What have a baby?"
He was like, "NO! I mean keep Madden."
Since our foster is very dominant and our resident girl is very dominant we know it can't really happen. Her fit in our family isn't quite as "seamless." But, she feels at home, and for now, she is a great fit.
Bessie is a real sweetheart! You are lucky to be sharing your life with her until she finds her home.

Skinny Fat Kid said...

We'll definitely be a 1 dog household for some time with the occasional foster. SFK wanted to keep Sassy, but I think now he's grateful I said no way!

A&A Friese said...

Haha, the adventures of Mr and Mrs B maybe :) I would miss Miss M too much though.

Two Kitties One Pittie said...

LOL. This sounds like Kevin asking if maybe I wouldn't notice if we switched out Stella for another cat and/or dog.

brooke said...

Aww Miss M! Poor girl. I think Bessie fits in so well with you guys, but I can see how 3 dogs would be a handful. But oh how happy Miss B would be!

Rachel said...

Aw... I hope A is not reading this haha. It might then become the adventures of A and M blog jk.
Very cute post though... so nice to see how easily Miss Bessie seems to be fitting into your family. I do love Miss M though (perhaps I am partial as our Amy is a little drama queen herself haha) and I would definitely miss her (and I'm sure you would too!!).

Have a great weekend!

Of Pit Bulls and Patience said...

Oooo Miss M better not hear about that! At least all those fantastic Bessie qualities will carry over to her future home too!

Brenda said...

Okay, we're going to pretend we didn't hear that!!!! Poor Miss M! Well, about the two vs. three, let me just say that never in my LIFE did I think I would have THREE big dogs. But fate said "Yes, yes you will." And so our two have become three. It is a little more work (mainly when it comes to going for walks or car rides), but beyond that I haven't really noticed much difference. More fun and more smiles, but not really more trouble.

A Wonderful Dogs Life said...

Never give up. There was once a time when our one human said no more pooches at two. Guess how many we have now ;)

After awhile 1,2 or 3 it doesn't really seem like any extra. It just all comes together in a nice new routine and you can't even remember how any less was different.

I'm guessing Miss M is already pawing around ideas for her own blog....Miss M in the City??

2 dogs + 1 cat + 2 humans said...

oh poor Miss M! ;-) don't let her hear you saying that, she'd be hurt.
Miss Betty is soooo cute tho

Pibble said...

I've tried negotiating out one of the humans for another dog, but that never seems to fly...
