My Engagement

I knew it was going to be a magical night from the moment my amber brown eyes opened that morning.  He was looking at me with a mischievous look and was trying hard to hide his secret but his tail started thumping on the bed and he said, "Tonight we are going to eat our kibble out on the porch....alone."  I felt my haunches quiver and I mustered up enough composure to say, "Ok".  All that day he was super sweet. He let me eat his left over breakfast kibble crumbs, licked my ears, and showed me some new dead critters in the yard to roll in.  At around 4:30 I awoke from my mid-afternoon nap and mom helped me get my daily bath and rubbed me down with lotion.  I slipped into my pink and white stripped frock and pranced downstairs to see if Austin was ready for dinner.  I couldn't find him anywhere but then when I went out the back door I spotted him, freshly brushed and waiting for me on a picnic blanket.  Before I could even say a thing he started singing my favorite Blake Shelton song.

"If you'll be my soft and sweet
I'll be your strong and steady
You'll be my glass of wine
I'll be your shot of whiskey
You'll be my sunny day
I'll be your shade tree
You'll be my honeysuckle
I'll be your honey bee"

His howl was so seductive. I was putty in his paws.  He waddled up next to me, licked my face and said. "Woof!"

Oh wow! This was getting steamy.  He presented a lovely dinner of salmon Little Cesar's and pupperoni treats along with two strawberry dach-eri's. (My favorite drink.)  He whispered sweet nothings into my bald ear and gently licked the crumbs off of my snoot. I was overcome with love as I looked into his dark brown eyes.  And happened.  The moment I've been waiting for since we met.  He nuzzled up to my neck and said, "Honey, I love you. Be my doxie-bride." Tears started filling my eyes and I looked down as he presented the most gorgeous ring I have ever seen.

"Yip, yip, yip, Yes!!!" was all I could say. 

So now we are officially engaged to be wed.  Mr. and Mrs. Austin Landgraf....I love the sound of that.  We haven't set a date yet but you will be the first to know when we do.
