I think it's pretty clear by now that I LOVE ANIMALS. All of them. Even pedophile looking sloths are so adorbs. Even lizards are cute and some snakes are too. If they're not a cute snake, they're at least really effing cool looking. In case you were wondering, "animals" does not include things like bugs, bees and spiders. Fuck them. Unless it's a ladybug or grasshopper, even a cricket is kinda cute. But spiders can fuck off and all those creepy looking insects and bugs can go die in a ditch somewhere. Bye. And yes, I understand we need bees. I've seen The Bee Movie, but they are EVIL! Honey bees and bumble bees are whatever. But those monstrous hornets and wasps... oh.my.god. The wasps. Like, why? Why do they exist?! Scariest creatures ever. Die. Just die. But have you seen how cute a baby rhino is!?
So I went to PetSmart this weekend to restock on DeNiro's food and litter. And every time we go there, I go into a frenzy of excitement. Like a kid getting a candy store as a present on christmas morning. We always manage to go on "adoption day", which is super exciting but also super sad because we can't take anyone home. There was an 8 month old Boxer mix and she was THE SWEETEST and I wanted to take her home so bad!! But we can't have pets where we live (DeNiro is a secret). We want a dog so badly but we'd never be able to hide a dog and we kinda don't wanna get evicted. But we do really want to start looking for somewhere else to live, just for this reason. Idealy, I'd like a huge house with a huge yard so I could have french bulldogs, pit bulls, pugs, kittens, pigs, bearded dragons, burrowing owls and many more. But I'm never that lucky powerball winner. Hashtag sad face. Also, I think DeNiro would be pissed. He likes being the only child.
Anyways, there were also some adorable puppies playing. Here's a super short video. I didn't get any pix or video of the Boxer because I was too busy hugging her and telling her how much I love her.
Also, they had kitties! This one was my favorite. SO FUNNY.
I also hung around the doggy day care and saw a pug. Made me think of my Becky. It's been almost a year since she passed away, I miss her a lot. But this is a happy post, so let's talk about her later.
I chilled with the guinea pigs and hamsters for awhile too. But I don't have any footage of them because that was all snapchatted. You're welcome, girls ;)
They didn't have any lizards, snakes, frogs, etc here so I didn't get to hang out with them. Fun Fact: I've owned 17 frogs. I LOVE FROGS. My first frog had only one eye so I named him One Eye Willie, duh. Because goonies never say die. Even though he died. Sad face. He was a tree frog. I got another one after him named Jupiter. Some fire belly toads came later, and then I got dwarf frogs, and albino clawed frogs. I had two albino clawed frogs, Tyson and Dory. I had a newt, a sucker fish and some other random fishies but Tyson always ate them so I had to stop getting them. I'll do a frog post some day and show you, they were all so cute.
If you're ever having a bad day, my animal pinterest board will lift your spirit. RAWR! And if you missed that we now have a helicopter in our home, here's some footage of the never ending battle of DeNiro vs. The Helicopter.

Over and out. Hug your pets. Boop!
