Last week I shared pictures of our dog Rico for the first time on my Instagram & figured I'd share him on here too. This dog is insane and I've wanted to get rid of him so many times BUT deep down I really do love him so he hasn't went anywhere.

Rico is about 7 years old. I got him from an ex boyfriend in high school. My parents told me I wasn't allowed to have a pet but I'm pretty sure I told my boyfriend at the time to go ahead and get it. I tried to bring Rico home but wasn't allowed so my boyfriend at the time kept him. Well, a couple of months later my parents changed their minds and let me bring Rico to my home. The boyfriend who gave me Rico and I ended up breaking up and Rico's been mine since then.

Having a dog and a toddler is a lot of work. Sophia never paid much attention to him until recently. She wants him beside her at all times. She puts stickers on him and ties ribbons on his collar and pull him around the house. She giggles so much after getting "kisses" from him. She puts make up on and hugs him so hard that I know he's not breathing. And he just puts up with it. Sometimes I'll hear him literally screaming as she sits on him or holds him down so I'll have to make her stop but other than that he just goes along with everything she does. It's funny because Gary will call Sophia Elmyra from Tiny Toons.
