Dog Lady


Hey all! My name is Laura Banks, but you can call me Lolly. I’m a 45-year-old New Yorker, originally from Bowling Green, KY, population 64,000. Contrary to the title, this blog is not just about dogs. It’s about my life as a single woman living in the shadow of my perfect sister, Lucinda Reagan. She’s the one who has it all. The husband, the kids, the house… I could rant all day, but I have tons more posts to do just that.
I do have dogs, of course. Three purebred Peluito Havanese dogs, Archie, the oldest, at 8 years old, Sugar, second, at 6, and Patch, the baby, at almost 1. I just got little Patch a week ago, from a dog breeder charging 1,000 dollars a puppy. I wasn’t thinking of getting another dog, as Havanese dogs are high maintenance, but I glanced at a picture of him, and couldn’t take my eyes away. His eyes were shining, his little pink tongue was out, and the tips of his fur were dark brown. I was infatuated and couldn’t help but shell out the money.

He is definitely a handful. He’s wild and energetic, unlike my other two. Why, just this morning he scratched me on the lip because he didn’t get his food on time! Havanese puppies also have a tendency to (urp) eat their stool, and Patch is no exception. I’m trying hard to wean him off that particular habit.

That’s about all there is to report today. Until next time, Lollipop signing off.

    An intriguing post. I’m looking forward to following the blog and finding out why you resent your sister so much. (I hope she doesn’t know about the blog!)
