Poetry and Cats

So, my family has been trying to convince my dad to let us get another dog. Right now we only have one because my other dog died in April. We have the one we want picked out and everything and she is only a few weeks old. I was telling this story to my friend Lewis who said that we should get a cat instead. There are a few problems with this.

1. My dog would likely eat a cat. 
2. My sister is allergic to cat hair.
3. And my mom hates them. 

None of these things seemed to be a problem until we hit #3 in which Lewis seemed to be appalled that my mom would hate cats. He jokingly said that they couldn't be friends anymore. I told my mom this story and she laughed and yet again, came up with a Haiku on the spot:

Friends no more
Found out you like cats
Litter box

I still can not figure out how she can come up with these things without really thinking about it. And so that is my Quote of the Day.

My Aunt Jill just got this beautiful new English Mastiff. He is only 15 months old and already weights more then I do. Even though my aunt lives in another state, my entire family so was excited for them to get this new dog and we can't wait to go see him. 

My aunt bought him and decided to keep his original name which is Tucker. I saw no problem with this until my mom found out that they kept the name. To which she exclaimed; "I can't believe Jill kept the name Tucker for the new dog! It rhythms with so"

Honestly, this thought hadn't even entered my head until she said this and now I have to agree with her. I don't care if Jill keeps the name, the biggest challenge now will be to not say anything in front of her two young daughters.
