Tagged by Sitka and Tia's BLAWG

We are a little late in responding but we were tagged by Sitka and Tia's BLAWG to share some info. about us (the humans). Here's our take of the interview:

(A)So I'm coming up on my 1 year adoption anniversary. How did you pick me?
(L)We're not sure who picked who! Alan and I were sitting on the grass watching all of you play with each other. You came charging at Alan, jumped on his lap and kissed him on the face and then you leaned over and kissed me too. We kept watching you after that and you seemed to play the best and have the most lovable personality so we chose you. For all we know you planted those kisses on purpose....maybe you chose us. :)

(A)Awww, I love hearing stories about me. But, I am supposed to be interviewing you. Okay....if I am your "baby" how come you two are talking about having other (human bipeds) some day?
(L) Well, you are our little baby but it would be nice to have children some day too.

(A) I don't know if I'll like that.
(L) What do you mean? You seem to love kids/babies.

(A) Ya I love them when I get to visit. I am not sure about this sharing my space thing and dividing the attention. Phew, just thinking about it gets me chasing my tail!
(L) Well I wouldn't chase your tail too much as we're still waiting to have kids. Let's just take each year as it comes.

(A) Why is it that you two sometimes leave me during the day?
(L) Well, we have to work. Ya know...afford the mortgage, pay off college bills, buy you toys/food/medicine/vet visits.

(A) What do you do when you leave? Do you eat treats like I do in my kennel?
(L) LOL. No. I work as a director at a nursing center with people that are diagnosed with dementia and your Dad works as a manager at Applebee's.

(A) I've been to that center before! It has the slippery floor! But awfully nice people. I loved meeting new people. I think I went to Dad's before too. One time I think you made me go up there to show them my Pumpkin embarrassing.
(L) But you looked so adorable in that! Everyone thought so. :)

(A) Do you have any embarrassing stories?
(L) Too many to tell. :P

(A) Do you have any siblings like I did?
(L) Well, I don't have the furry kind. :P But yes, I have 2 sisters and 2 brothers (all bipeds). Your Dad has 1 brother. When his Dad remarried he gained another brother and a sister.

(A) Besides playing with me what else do you like to do?
(L) Well, you are pretty irresistible.....but I do like to play around with my pics that I take, read, be outside (I think that's why we get along so well), go to the ocean, and most importantly be with family and friends. Your Dad loves to play video games (he is still a kid at heart), read, tinker with his Prelude, learn about new car stuff, and get together with family and friends too.

(A) Last question of the night...I am getting thirsty and a bit tired.

(A) Some of my doggie friends talk about going to school. I've never been, although I have heard you mutter under your breathe that I should. Did you and Dad go to school?
(L)Yes. Actually your Dad and I went to the same high school (that is where we met). Then your Mom headed off to a college in SC, transferred and went to a college in Maine. Your Dad went to a college in PA and then transferred to ME. Just when we thought we were done with school, your Mom went on to earn a graduate degree at the University of New England. School is special to us because that is where we met (high school) and developed a friendship which would eventually develop into something much more!

(A) *Puts paw over eyes* We definitely need to end this interview. That last part was getting to be a bit too romantic for me. Isn't your anniversary coming up soon? Wait, don't answer that....let's wait til next time.

Your parents sound super cool. I bet they spoil you rotten. You better start watching them though so you stay the spoiled only child! They might try to sneak off to the human sibling store!
