Couldn't you just grab this wee fella and hug him to pieces?
Sometimes I wonder why we have pets----and so many of them--
They are work----the vacuuming--the time it takes to prepare their meals--- getting their medicine into them-- picking up what they leave behind outside--walking around their bodies as they sleep sprawled out on the kitchen floor--washing their doggie beds--pulling fur from your glasses because it hangs over your eyes---the work is continuous!
Himself constantly says, "Too many animals"----and "think of what we could do if we didn't have these dogs!"---
I remember the time I had both dogs in the car with me---drove in the driveway, to see Himself at the front door--with tears in his eyes---
Unbeknown to me, he had come home from work early, only to find no-one at home--an empty quiet house---
:"You took both dogs ", he said ----
Our problem is, Himself and I , start out with a healthy cat--or dog----which after a short time, and a very expensive Vet bill, we are told this animal has some life threatening disease -------odd that it seems to always happen to us--
And so, my nursing skills are forever back in place-----with my patients now having 4 paws!
But, in spite of himself complaining---and the work involved, pets do contribute to a longer life--I hope---
I always believe Beau is a role model for me, as his kibble is measured out daily---so as not to allow a weight gain--and so far, he is looking slim---a lighter weight is better for his irregular heart----
Now, if someone could only measure my kibble----all my meals---and-with no amount of begging for the ice cream---would it appear---
Lord Love A Duck eh?---- Dogs have it pretty good!
