Adventures in Babysittin'

Hey, y'all:

'Member how last summer I said I was lookin' fer a job? Well, I found one.

Now as y'all prolly know, I'm not real fond o' kids.....always up in yer face, an' screamin' an' actin' a fool. an' mom are fosterin' a real nice five-month-old kid that come intuh the Kentuckiana Pug Rescue. She dint have a name (ain't that sad?) so we're callin 'er "Cutie".

Yeah, she ain't like most kids. She's real quite and kinda polite! I been showin' the kid around the house an' ennertainin' 'er with stories 'bout my tour o' dooty in Da Nang. As you can see, I got 'er on the edge of 'er seat.

Mom took 'er to the Petco yesterday an' got 'er this jacket - the kid gits cold perty easy!

Anyhoo, she's been doin' real good with goin' tuh the terlit outside. (I showed 'er all the good spots.)

Hail, she's such a nice kid she even stopped tuh bow 'er head an' pray in our memory garden.

"Come on, kid. Don't be shy. Say hi tuh all my blog pals!"

"Yeah, yeah, I know. I smell funny. You will, TOO when you git old!"

So after I done some potty trainin' we headed back inside tuh warm up. Check out this little face. I bet I was this cute when I was a kid.

Yep, so that's all the news that's fit tuh print. I'll keep ya updated on the kid. This babysittin' gig ain't too bad! I think ever'thing's gonna work out fine, an'.......


Yep. Mmhmm.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK! Vito's Mom here taking over b/c I can't help myself! She is sooooooooo cuuuuuuuuuuute, OMG! Hank you are being such a good pugsitter! But how could you help it with that cutie?? There could be no better name for her! I think my favorites are the sleepy-time ones! I can't even handle it.

I'll give Vito the computer back later. But for now - EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!

omg, omg, omg!! She is just adorable! Now you tell Cutie that I want to come over and visit with her! I have some knowledge that Molly O'Malley passed on to me and I would like to share with her!

Pugs & Kisses,

Cutie is the perfect name for her. Watch out, Hank. If you get along too good, she'll stay forever!

Hi Hank
Its so kind of you to show cutie around and let her hang out with you. She is an adorable little girl kid- if you ask me.
I like her little coat- that should keep her good and warm.
She looks like a real sweet heart! And she looks like she likes you!

Looks like you got yourself the perfect job - showing a little sweetie the ropes. We also think you're looking an awful lot like a big brother...? Just saying.

That's nice of you to share your binky (okay, we realize it wasn't maybe a choice...but you didn't bite her butt when she took it so that's good)

Pug love from,
Pearl & Daisy

Sorry Hank. Mum is just going crazy right nows. Crazy over the cuteness of her! You should see Mum! Jumping ups and down. Clapping her hands and yelling "OMP OMP she is truly a doll, Squeee"

Yup I say she is cutes too but I dunno... I thinks us older gentlemen are way more handsome.

Hank, your job will be short-lived I'm afraid. There is no way Cutie doesn't get forever parents soon! Heck, Gammy is about ready to hop in the car right now, mumbling something about Payton needing a companion!

Your bud,

Oh Hank she is just the cutest. What a good baby sitter you are, hopefully she doesnt take any more Binkys

Kitty+Coco said...

Well, I'll be danged. I never knew you to be such a paternal type Hanky. That Cutie sure is a nice, calm gal. Think she could call Coco and give her some pointers on that? Worth a try. Maybe since you have been so nice about the young gun, your mom will throw in an extra PBR tonight. Hint hint.


Tucker and Lola said...

Hanky, I have to be the voice of reason here since so many of our friends are blinded by her cuteness. I can see how they are being taken in by her, I mean she is extra special cute and all, but we gotta keep it real. But you have to watch the cute and calm ones, she may be planning a secret attack and the binky is just the first move. Keep telling her the war hero stories,it will keep her off guard and she will be afraid to mess with your bad self!

Payton said...

Hi my sweet sittin' Hank! Ignore what Gampy said, I don't need a younger sister, but I agree that she is a cutie for sure! You and your mom and dad are so nice to look after her for a while.
PS. You look mighty handsome in those last two pictures...

Hank Cutie is a cutie pie for sure. She is pretty small too...Tuni is eying that jacket she got just to warn ya. Keep your eye on the small ones Hank they can be the sneakiness ones.

Hank, you're doing a fine job there of pugsitting! And she is indeed a cutie!!!

Minnie and Mack said...

Aw Hank, you're just a sweetie on the inside!
Cutie is a real keeper.

Drools and licks,
Minnie and Mack
