Roman...on his favorite topic, Puppies (and definitely not on the ABCs)

I need to preface this video with just a couple of quick stories. Roman loves puppies. Just not in real life. ALL day long (I mean at least once an hour) he will randomly start talking about puppies. We have lengthy discussions about the puppies he knows (my mom's dog, Joe's parents' dog, my brother's dogs, the neighbor's dog, etc.) He will tell me all about them..that they are soft, that they say "woof", and that he sees puppies.

This video is a pretty good example of how fixated he can be on puppies.

The funny thing is, he really doesn't like dogs. :) He wants to look at Rocky (our neighbor's dog) out the window about 8 times a day, but when we got outside and Rocky is out there - IN HIS CAGE - Roman freaks out and will not let me put him down.

When we stayed at my brother and sister-in-law's house one night, they had the puppies in their kennel becuse Roman gets scared of them. One of them barked and Roman started crying, so I picked him up and was taking him into the kitchen to get a drink...we had to walk past the puppies, and through the sobs, he yells "Hi puppies!".

Roman went to Rockwell City with us this weekend so that Joe, Adam, Ryan and Tony could have band practice. We had the pleasure of staying on the Babbitt farm with Mike and Joyce - so fun! They have a dog named Harold. All weekend long, Roman would look out the window and say "Hi, Harold". "I see you Harold". "Come here, Harold", but wouldn't go anywhere near her outside (yes, I said her. That wasn't a typo). :) Finally, he did get up the courage to pet her on Saturday, and he has been talking about her ever since. Maybe he is getting over his fear?? :)
