Question seven...

When you imagine yourself as awestruck or giddy with excitement, what are you doing?

I immediately friended the dog at a winery in Seattle

Only one thing has the ability to consistently make me giddy with excitement: puppies. I don't discriminate sizes, breeds, colorings, age, or cuteness. All dogs are puppies and all puppies are cute. I get giddy with excitement when I see dogs walking, sitting in cars, playing in the park, and sitting on porches. In fact, as soon as I see a puppy I get giddy. I love dogs. A. LOT. So what am I doing when I imagine myself giddy with excitement? Laying on the floor surrounded by dogs who are eager to give me kisses.

My 3 favorite dogs
I do have three favorite dogs. My dog, of course, is number one. His name is Huxley and he is a black and white mix between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Bichon Frise (known as a Cavachon.) He's pictured above on the right. He joined the Hasty Family in May of 2011. Eric and I drove all the way to Kansas to check him out. We wanted to meet him before we committed to buying him. As soon as we saw him flop out of the car, our hearts melted and we knew he was ours.

My number two and three favorite dogs are Truman (pictured in the middle) and Wilson (on the left.) Truman is also a Cavachon (hard to believe, right?! He doesn't look anything like Huxley!) Wilson, we were told, is a Westie (but we have a suspicion he is a mix between a Westie and a Bulldog.) Truman and Wilson joined the Steffes Family shortly after we lost our beloved family dog, Dakota. Dakota was the perfect family dog who we all adored dearly. She lived a long life, with many ups and downs. Dakota was found in a coma one morning, shortly after we got her. She had several tough months and we didn't know if she would make it. She came through and blessed us with many years of happiness and joy.

I could go on and on about all the dogs that have touched my life. But to keep this post short and to the point: dogs make me giddy with excitement.
