ok, so...the pets of asba

Posted By Whitney Fletcher, asba, Thursday, November 11, 2010

We have had dogs and bred puppies since I was young. While they were a part of our family, I always thought of them as just pets. When I would see people who treated their pets like kids (like our neighbors growing up) I thought they were...well, weird!!! Then one day about a year ago I happened to walk into a pound in Tempe and find love at first sight (cue, cheesy music). In the midst of all these crazy barking dogs sat a purebred Dogue de Bordeaux (french mastiff) with the best under bite you have ever seen. He looked so sweet and beautiful (let's remember that beauty is in the eye of the beholder ok). I bought him that day…the best part being that he was a big dog so he was ON SALE for $60. Hello, purebred puppy for $60 aka BEST DEAL EVER! I brought him home, named him Dexter Taco Fletcher, nursed him from a super skinny 80lbs, to his current weight of 115lbs and have become 100% completely attached to him. He is my child. Yes, I have become one of those weirdo people I once made fun of. What goes around comes around!

I am so obsessed that on his 2nd birthday (at least it’s the date that the vet and I decided would be roughly his 2nd birthday), I gave him a little birthday party! We went over to his girlfriend Maggie's house (she's an english mastiff), they wore birthday hats, had a special birthday meal, presents of toys and bones and even a bottle of Doggie Beer! My poor co-workers had to hear so much about his upcoming birthday that they actually got together and gave him a card signed by all their pets! It was the cutest thing ever! 

As I was reading the card to Dexter from my coworkers pets (cause yes, naturally I would actually read him the card) I realized that everyone had pets that meant as much to them as Dexter means to me. Thus the asba pets series was born!
