Dogs and Dawgs
Some of you may remember a brief phase in my life, when I had a dog. A husky. Not the best apartment dog. She went to live with a big family on a farm shortly after Peter and I got married. Well, I have been thinking about dogs, lately. When you are thinking about getting a dog people are full of advise and warnings..... They shed. Never feed them from the table or they will always beg. You have to walk them. Oh, the vet bills. Don't let them on the furniture. etc., etc. I have been thinking that a lot of that advise applies to my dawgs (Lillian and Grayson). I wish someone had told me never to feed them off your plate. Lillian eats half of my food and Grayson is now begging for the other half. I am consoling myself with the thought that at least it is cheaper than Weight Watchers. And frankly, you might as well call it shedding or crumbing. You have to vaccuum behind them many times a day. The doctor bills. They really should be walked every day to get some wiggles out. And really should never let them on the furniture. (Exhibit #1: My couch.) So I'm thinkin'. I might as well get a dog, now. Maybe the dog with help with the crumb problem.
