This event occurred weeks ago. I think I am finally at the point that I can discuss it in a rational/humane sort of way!
Did I ever mention that I should have never agreed to get a DOG.
Maryn came home to this lovely mess one day, it is pretty obvious that I wasn't home because their would have been no photographic evidence as I would have been losing my mind, not taking pictures. Did I ever mention that I can't believe I said "Yes" to a DOG!! I did?! oh right I did.
The following are really good reasons to never get a DOG!
1.Dogs don't use toilets and they don't wipe
2.Dogs chew on a girls most valued possessions, Yah that's right SHOES!
3.Dogs have to be led around on a leash twice a day(for at least 30 minutes) or they get fat, why is that a problem you ask... See comment number 8
4.Dogs eat your garbage, the neighbors garbage and then go looking for more garbage
5.Dogs shed, 'nuf said
6.Dogs bark at everything that walk by your house any time of the day but never at night
7.Dogs cost more to be "babysat" than your children
8.Dogs yearly check- ups and health issues are not covered by Alberta Health
10.Dogs have the worst breath on earth
11.Dogs live to escape and they're not smart enough to find their way home
12.Dogs sniff other dogs butts then give "kisses" to oblivious humans (not me, ever)
13.Dogs muddy paws on clean floors = mom losing her mind
14.Dogs leave "nose prints" ( I can handle fingers but noses...ick)
15.Dogs turn your back yard into a Barn Yard
I could keep going but... I do have a life.
O.K here is where you question my sanity as I tell you why I do have a dog!
My dog is good company, she doesn't need much, just a sunny spot to lay and food of course. I don't like being alone, so having her around helps me not to feel lonely!
I love watching my family give her "loves". Dogs really do give unconditional love, they don't care if you are rude or if you lost your mind on them 5 minutes before. Whenever you need someone soft and warm to hug, they are right there, no questions asked!!
Admit it... You think she's pretty dang cute too!!!
Kids and dogs are usually a great combination. I can always tell when my kids feel down or anxious about something. They go to the dog first, she doesn't judge or lecture or ask questions.
I don't have any pics about my next comment so you just get "cute" again!
My dog is a fabulous running partner! She can keep up on days when I am feeling really good and she pushes me along on days when I am not. She never ditches... she is always ready to go when I am. If I would rather listen to my ipod than talk, she is good with that!
