My Leia meets Chewbacca
I told her to quit looking. "It's like looking at porn Cathi! It's something you're never gonna get!" But she persisted and her hunger only grew. Over time my resistance to her intensifying desire started to breakdown. She did her homework and finally found one that had just the right background, and being sold at just the right price and she nabbed him.
We went out together to Tooele to get "Max", our new St. Bernard. He's two years old and HUGE! No lie, It's like having a four-legged Chewbacca in our house! Cathi just loves him to death. She seriously hasn't stopped smiling since yesterday morning. It's funny to see Cathi cuddle up and hug this monster of a dog. He's so gentle. He's fantastic with the kids, and with other animals.
We took him on a walk yesterday and he met our friend's dog Maggie. Which he was fine with. He totally ignores the cat and the chickens in the back. The cat just about jumped and clung to the ceiling when she first saw him. I didn't think a cat's back could bend up that high. But now she just sits a few feet from him staring.
Cathi's dream has come true. Already Max's favorite is Cathi. If she leaves the room and everyone else is in there, he'll follow her. I'm happy for her. All the kids are jealous that he's picked her to be the Alpha female of the house.
