Just over a year ago, the universe colluded with a youtube clip, and my poor heart, still bruised from losing my previous dogs, started to feel like it could stand another foray into pet ownership.
What has happened since, is a love affair with this animal, which is just this side of legally reportable.
(Just getting out of shower, and discovering the dog had one of his stuffed animals…)
Liam (yelling): “Sully, you get back here! You better give me that!”
Liam (muttering to himself): “I’m going to go put on some underwear, so he takes me seriously.”
Me: “Hey, I think the dog isn’t as freaked out by grown men anymore! He totally stopped barking at this one guy, after just a minute, and then he even licked sweat off his forehead.”
Tracy: “Um…why is a guy sweating in your house?”
Me: “He was a mover, pervert.”
Tracy: “Maybe he only likes sweaty men?”
Me: “Maybe he only likes men that take shit from our house.”
Caolinn: “I think the dog relates to me.”
Me: “The dog spends half his day drinking from the toilet and trying to eat pads out of the garbage.”
Caolinn: “Well…aside from that.”
