Yorkies

Okay, will someone please explain to me why so many of the Braves have little lap dogs? KJ will be the celebrity draw for a golf tournament next month, and his bio mentions his two Yorkshire Terriers.

1. Gross.
2. Really??

(I love dogs, but I've yet to meet a Yorkie in person that didn't yip, hump, or paw at me constantly. They drive me nuts.)

Here's the bio, if you'd like to see it. I'm sure he's not thrilled about being called a "born and bred Atlanta Brave". ;)



And here's the link to the charity event page. Mark Teixeira hosted this last year!

Yorkies are not dogs. They are nasty little yappie thingys that pretend to be dogs. Real men should not have fake dogs (sorry KJ...I still love you!)

(for the record, puff-ball-like Poms are not dogs either but Gonzo could own a Persian cat named Bubbles and he'd still be sexy ;) )

I'm thinking usually it has to do with the women wanting those dogs and the men caving to make their woman happy. I know KJ said on one of the Straight Up shows he used to have a chocolate lab, so at least he does like varieties of dogs. Plus, their house may not have been big enough to house a big dog since they are/were living in a townhouse.

Speaking of which, Lauren, have you heard anything about KJ and Lauren moving to Roswell? He had said previously in an interview earlier that he lives in Atlanta (outside the city) in a townhouse and said they were going to be looking for another house this year. But on his official site bio, it says they reside in Roswell now. Just wondering if you had heard anything.

CA -

So after our last go 'round about Gonzo and his puffy dog, I googled the specific mix he has, just to see what one would look like. Surprisingly (and much to my delight), they're not all as gay and poofy looking as one would expect! :)

KJ lives in Roswell? Maybe I'm neighbors with him and didn't even know it! Hmmm...

CABravesFan said...

Jen-

I blocked out the specific mix from my memory banks...what exactly was it?

Jen said...

CA -

It was a teacup pomeranian poodle mix. Here are some pics . They're actually kinda cute!

CABravesFan said...

Jen-

all I can say is thank the Lord Gonzo is hot! :D

SCJ said...

Wow, CA you're really saying it's "sexy" for Mike (who's NOT married) to have a poodle than for Kelly and his wife to own Yorkies? Hm. Weird. lol

My Yorkie was the best. I loved him & I definitely plan to get another one soon!

And I agree with Leah, he probably caved for Lauren!

CABravesFan said...

SCJ-

Not at all...I'm saying Mike could have a pink haired french poodle with a diamond studded collar named Fifi and he would be sexy beacuse Mike is HOT...and while I adore KJ he is more boy-next-door cute then I-will-melt-if-you-look-at-me hot ;)

They kinda look like Ewoks. Maybe Gonzo's a huge Star Wars fan? Actually a cutesy little dog is probably a good chick magnet for a single guy... not that he needs a bit of help.

flbravesgirl said...

Speaking of dogs, did y'all peruse AJC's photos from Bark in the Park? How cute is the dachsund wearing the little Braves' helmet?

CABravesFan said...

flbravesgirl-

I had the same thought about the Ewoks...and if Gonzo is a Star Wars fan I might as well curl up and die- the perfect man has finally been found! I am a HUGE Star Wars geek :)

flbravesgirl said...

OK, ladies, we have to get CA & Gonzo set up on a date so she can grill him about his movie preferences. Any ideas on how to accomplish this?

CABravesFan said...

flbravesgirl-

That is a brilliant idea:) Did I tell you that I found out where the Braves stay in LA? I have no problems stalking...er...waiting for the guys at the hotel (it's only about a mile from my office)

flbravesgirl said...

Oh, the trouble we could get into... :-D

SCJ said...

I'm not sure at this point if Mike can get any nerdier... lol.
I forgave the whole band geek thing. I can look past the poodle... but Star Wars? This is all just too much. haha

Good thing he likes baseball.
(let alone, plays it!)

Ca, just come out to Atlanta & come to BP. Mike is very interested in what goes on in the stands during BP ;)

CABravesFan said...

flbravesgirl-

come on out!

Jen said...

CA - Can I come join you and flbravesgirl? Pretty please? :)

Jen said...

Ladies, Gonzo's video is up on AJC (but not yet linked to the Braves page). Must go take cold shower now. :D

Lauren T. said...

SCJ's correct -- Gonzo's always checking out his audience during BP. ;)

Amanda said...

The pomapoo is cute, haterz! LOL

Mike can like whatever he wants, it shant change my opinion of him. :)~

And I swear, EVERYONE lives in Roswell. Jen, I'm very jealous of your proximity to so many of the boys!

CABravesFan said...

Jen-

Of course! I would feel much better if I shared my jail cell with friends ;)

flbravesgirl said...

How 'bout if you come to Georgia once I've moved here permanently? We could have a little gathering at the ballpark.

CABravesFan said...

flbravesgirl-

I'd love to but California's got better weather :)
