Momma and Dad

2. Dad grew up on a farm
3. Momma gave Dad a motorcycle for their 10th anniversary
4. Dad is the oldest of 5 kids and Momma is the youngest of 2 but her brother died two years ago
5. Before us, they had 3 cats - Angel, Taz and Lola and 2 pups - Tia and the one and only Tasha
6. Momma was born on Thanksgiving
7. Dad's favorite movies/documentaries include Star Wars (only the original 3), Shawshank Redemption, the Thin Man series, The War (Ken Burns), most military movies
8. Music tastes include everything from Vivaldi to Flogging Molly to Kid Rock to Elvis to Aerosmith to Dean Martin. But very little Country, Rap or Opera.
9. Momma's favorite dinner includes great crusty warm bread, imported butter, a thick rare grilled steak with mushrooms, and a dessert with dark chocolate. Don't clutter the plate with veggies.
10. Dad always calls Momma when he leaves work and since he just called, it's time to go.

That was a challenge. If you haven't done it, consider yourself tagged.

Woof ya later,
Princess Eva

It is always nice to learn more about our friends.

The Thundering Herd said...

Great list. We are not sure how this went from MySpace as "25" things to "40" when it hit DWB, but just made it more challenging.

P.S. - Brice - The Herd has a burping contest after every meal, so you would fit in nicely.

The Army of Four said...

That was all so interesting! I've SEEN Eva in her tiara and Eva, you look GORGEOUS in it! You're a very nice puppy!
And Brice - I'm the burper of our pack! :) And I am paw oriented. I loved it when you smacked me with your paws. Sigh. We were meant for each other!

That was really interesting learning more about you. Your mom's birthday and our dad's birthdays must be very close to the same day. Sometimes his birthday is Thanksgiving too. We were birthday presents to him, one day early, and we came home on Nov. 25. :-)
