Tall Tails: Ways That Lil Is Just Like Her Mommy

For those of you with pets, particularly those who share them with your significant other, how often do you attribute their traits to the fact that they were inherited from one of you? Like, "Lil's so judgy! She totally gets that from you." Well we do that a lot. And I've found that many of the reasons I want to return her I get frustrated with her are things that Tom often tells me I do.

I can make no other conclusion than to say, Lil has learned a lot of how to handle her life from me. Thing is, that's not always a good thing.

1. dresses to impress
the prettiest ballerina
2. high maintenance
"duh I should have more treats and toys, I'm a princess, duhhh"
3. always ready to eat
"kung pow chicken anyone?
4. lush
"oops the bottle's gone? how did that happen?"
5. whiny
"guyssssss just let me outtttttt"
6. know-it-all
"mom I know how to get there! lay off!"
7. impatient
"throw the kong. just do it. come on. do it. hurry up."
8. dramatic
"ahhh the pain is almost too much to bear. I just don't think I can go on"
9. judgy
"mom are you seriously gonna wear that out? you look like a hobo."
10. freakin adorable
see? samsies.
Poor Tom. He has to deal with both of us. Really tho, I'm pretty sure the other half of the craziness that is Lil comes from him.

  25. For thousands of years dogs have been bred. From time to time humans have done inbreeding even from their own ancestral lines and also by mixing them from various lines. Over the centuries the whole breeding process is continuing until the present day, resulting in a huge genetically diversity of all types of dogs, breeds and hybrids, no other mammal can present. Furthermore no speciation developed, despite the appearance of a wide variation of dogs no other animal could obtain. Just compare the extreme difference between a Chihuahua and a Great Dane.
