HoneyBunny Going Wild on New Year's Eve

The above video was taken at 3:14am on New Year's Day. We had gotten back from going out for New Year's Eve and HoneyBunny was SO HAPPY we were home. We piled in the bed with HoneyBunny between us and she decided that she wanted to play. I couldn't help but take the opportunity to capture the moment. The video quality is a bit poor due to it being taken from a cell phone, but it's good nonetheless.

My Dad has a Yorkshire Terrier named Cajun. Years ago I purchased him from a breeder in Louisiana and his actual name is "Ragin' Cajun". The dog was supposed to be ours, but he became very attached to my Dad. After awhile I gave Cajun to my Dad and they have been inseparable ever since. Watching Cajun and my Dad is just sickening. They are so very close and Cajun is so very spoiled. I could never understand what it felt like to love a dog like that. Everywhere you see Daddy you see Cajun and vice versa. Daddy holds him all the time and will at times have a silly grin on his face as he holds him. The grin comes from the love he feels for that old dog.

Last year I bought a toy poodle named HoneyBunny for my daughter's birthday. I made sure not to show any attention to HoneyBunny because I wanted my daughter and her to form a bond. The dog followed me around everywhere. I couldn't seem to get away from her. My daughter didn't spend as much time with her as she should and finally I broke down and started petting her. Before I knew it the love bug bit me.

I cannot begin to tell you how much I love this dog. She is my daughter as well. HoneyBunny follows me everywhere I go and we are now inseparable. I love holding her and I find myself wishing she could go everywhere with me. I was even thinking that I wish she could be out with us on New Year's Eve. (Now remember that this is coming from someone who would get sickened watching Daddy spoil Cajun absolutely rotten.)

I finally understand it now and wouldn't have it any other way.
