Pets and the Love of Dogs
HELP! I am giving in!
Why I should get another dog
Well it's obvious isn't it? Companionship, total admiration and love towards me and everyone around me, not being able to respond to my moods! Exercise and of course friendship.
Is this enough I ask myself as I fight my thoughts against the idea of getting another beautiful, loving, rewarding dog.
I have had two dogs during my married life and have loved every minute of it. They are so rewarding and such good company. Not only do they become devoted to you but you become devoted to them and you just can't imagine life without them.
If I got another dog I could walk with it, have fun, throw sticks, chase wildlife, meet other avid dog walkers for a chat couldn't I? Then why in my heart am I refusing to let this urge take over my reasons for not getting another dog.
What the rest of the family think
Well, the hubby is fighting his thoughts as well! Which doesn't help me as I was the one who originally introduced him to dogs. He originally was a cat lover and unfortunately the feeling was not mutual so being the wifey I managed both times to get my own way and have Golden Retrievers.
We have not had a dog for the past three years and at first it was not what we both wanted we both new that it was time for a break from them.
Now the rest of the family are saying get another one, you know you both want one so why not? And the grandson is even worse, he has thrown into the works that he would stay more often if we had another dog, and I thought he liked to visit for the wifi!
Look at me, you know you want me!
Why we should not get another dog!
No, no, no, we must stick to what our thoughts are saying and not our hearts because we are very busy people and we like to ride motorbikes and we like to go out for dinner and we like to go walking.
Ah, there it is. Walking. Walking without a dog is not the same and it is very easy to say, no I don't think Ill bother today! But, with a dog you have no excuse, you have to walk a dog, you cannot not walk a dog because those lovely puppy eyes look up at you questioningly asking when are we going!
Ah, there it is. Puppy. An adorable little puppy, fluffy, cuddly and extremely gorgeous and of course a time waster, when you should be doing things your spending time playing with the puppy and then of course they grow up into a great big dog!
Ah, there it is. Dog. Dog means vet bills, dog means ackyooh to pick up (I hope you the readers understand what ackyooh is slang for!) Dog means exercise, not a bad thing as I could do with more! Dog means more visits from the Family.
Ah, there it is. Family. It wont be the family that has to get up to the puppy in the middle of the night to feed it. It wont be the family that has to train it to be a good puppy. It wont be the family that has to give up time to play with it when they are not about. But the family includes the grandson.
Ah, there it is. Grandson. Now it would be lovely to see the grandson more! What fun he would have with a new puppy, how his life would light up with a new friend to visit and he could see his Nanny and Grumps more.
Mmmmm.... this is becoming harder to challenge day by day!
How will I cope when Spring arrives!
It's bad enough that it is Winter and very lonely at home when hubby is at work! And that it could snow at any minute and I know that dogs love to walk in the snow! But what will we do when Spring arrives and the air is clean and the sky clear and walking with a dog is just the best!
Not much longer, come and get me!
