I don’t know why mama keeps insisting on bringing girl dogs home. Doesn’t she know? Girl dogs are so pesky! Remember how Stevie was so in love with me that she was always staring at me and trying to make kissy face? I don’t know if it’s because of my devastating good looks or what, but the girl dogs are always obsessed with me.
The only dogs I have ever loved have been dudes. No girls. That’s just the way I roll. So when mama told me she was bringing another stupid girl home, I was pissed. Why couldn’t she bring me home another Gonzo — a cool little guy who would hang out with me but not stare at me all the time?
I first met Georgia on Sunday, after she was done with her meds for her ghirardhelli and her bordatelli (mama didn’t want me to get any of those “elli” diseases from her). We took a couple of co-walks and she kept trying to sniff sniff sniff my business end. Needless to say, I was not impressed. But because I’m such an experienced foster brother by now and I could tell that little Georgia girl didn’t mean me any harm, I stayed pretty relaxed, and mama was so impressed that we moved right to Georgia’s tiedown, skipping entirely over the whole week we normally spend with baby gates.
Mama kept calling it a “really big deal” and saying things about Georgia’s “sweet temperament” or “wonderful manners” or “mildness,” but I know that the real reason we moved so fast is that I decided to be extra awesome. And I had good motivation, too. Curious Georgia doesn’t eat much, so mama tends to leave her bowl laying around, hoping that Georgia will wander over now and then for a few bites of kibble. I knew this was a big opportunity for me, and the faster we got to free range status, the faster I would have a chance to inhale her dinner when mama forgot to hide it from me. That’s how clever I am!
But then something unexpected happened. I started to notice that even though I did find her staring and sniffing a little annoying, it got less and less annoying. By the end of the first tie-down day, Georgia had graduated to a drag line and I had graduated to sharing my bed with her. I even let her snuggle up a little closer than I normally let dogs get, just because she is kind of sweet and vulnerable and warm.
I still wasn’t entirely certain of what to think. All my life I had only liked dudes. How could it be that all of a sudden, a girl dog was giving me the warm and fuzzies? I kept pondering it over our first day or two of free-range, but then Curious Georgia did something that really sealed the deal and helped me realize that it was in fact love: she let me share her beloved octopus.

Awww you love your foster sister 🙂
Chick & Georgia – you both rock! xo
Oh Sir Chix-a-lot, what a great foster brother you are, and that last photo; just divine. I especially love that last photo. You and Georgia are BOOTIFUL! I think it’s going to be my new desktop background 🙂
They are such a cute pair!
Awww yay, glad they are getting along so well, makes things so much easier. I knew it wouldn’t take long with all those longing looks she gives. Some of those looks remind me of Luna a lot. Chick really does break the mold when it comes to liking boy dogs over girls, usually it’s opposites that work best. I have a feeling he probably wouldn’t much care for Luna, as she is a massive flirt with some boys, especially calm ones like him lol.
Have a great weekend
That last photo is a heart melter!
Chick – you are extra awesome!
Wait…do I detect hints from Chick that he wants his foster sister to become permanent sister? 🙂
Awwww, lovely. Chick, you’re such a handsome gent, you know the ladies just can’t help it.
Chick – you make me laugh – especially when you said “pissed”!! LOL I love your collar, by the way. Very dude-like! I’m so pleased to hear that you like (maybe love) Georgia. She is such a sweetie…..and so are you! No wonder your mommy loves you – you’re a good boy!! Thank you for being such a wonderful foster brother, Chick.
I love to see you smiling in the pictures, and so great to see you guys hanging out together.
The last picture is awesome! They have gone from Chick looking a little unsure of his new foster sister to Georgia now being a little unsure and upset that Sir Chick has convinced her to share the octopus! He looks quite pleased with himself!
Chick + Georgia 4ever.
Also, that collar is flipping sweet! Jackie Boy needs one like that. He’ll show us who’s boss.
That last photo is very “American Gothic,” no?
Oh, those two are just so cute! I’m glad they are getting along. Love the contrast between a white dog and a black dog. That’s the current dog combination at our house as well!
I love how happy you look when you are laying on the deck with Mom and Curious G! You’re not fooling anyone, Chick! You’re in looooooooove!
Very lovely pictures and great narrative.
That is very sweet! Nice how sometimes it just goes smoothly…another sign from the Universe that rescuing this dog was absolutely the right thing to do!
She is SERIOUSLY beautiful. That’s why you like her, Sir Chick!
I love when youre int he pics, Aleksandra! This is such a fun post, we totally look forward to Fridays!
Oh my word what an adorable story. See you like girls too, BOL
Benny & Lily
SO CUTE! Chick’s in LOVE! 🙂
Aww, you are such a great foster brother! Those are some wonderful pictures of both you and Georgia!
Chick loves his first chick… It’s the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen and a sign of great things to come!!
I’d like anyone who shared their cool octopus with me, too. That is one awesome looking toy!
Wow, she shared her octopus? Man, that is awesome. I mean, that is one amazing looking toy. Are you and Georgia in looooooooooove?!
Loving every word of this post! We’ve had to integrate lately here, too and we’ve finally settled into the “almost perfectly comfortable” stage. Congrats on an awesome new soul dog 😉 Sounds like finding a home will be a bit easier!
What’s black and white and read all over? A blog about Chick and Georgia! 🙂
That is hysterical!!
typed by my trained monkey. please excuse tybos.
Wow Chick, that must be one special girl! I have to say there is a certain balance between the two of you. Since everything is bigger in Texas, maybe there is space for Georgia too?
OMD what a cute post!!! They are totally adorable together 🙂 The last pic is the best 🙂
Oh I love this so much!! The picture at the end is PRICELESS!!!
Can you explain what “tie-down” day is?
I sure can, but BAD RAP does it so much better! http://badrap-blog.blogspot.com/2010/01/fostering-part-five-in-praise-of-tie.html
