As I have mentioned, I have been staying at The Manor (aka my aunt’s house) taking care of my mom.
Not only have I been taking care of her and my boys, but I have been taking care of Gepetto, their Maltese.
Each day, Gepetto makes the case against me EVER getting a dog!! They are just one more thing to take care of….
|Gepetto. Not even this face makes me want a dog.|
He is a really good dog, he lets you know that he has to go out by ringing a bell attached to the door. He sleeps most of the day. And he listens and comes when you call him (most of the time).
He’s all those good things, but MAN ALIVE he is a lot of work!
He wakes you up at 6 am to let him out. Then he wakes you up again at 8 am to feed him and let him out again. And I have to clean up his poop. It’s like having a newborn.
When it nears dinner time, he continually pulls at his dish and nips at your feet until you feed him. UGH. And when you are eating, he begs. I hate beggers.
Did I mention that dogs bark at imaginary things? And at nighttime this is really scary!
The only thing I would want a dog for is to lick my floor clean when the boys drop crumbs (which is all the time)!
Do you have a dog? What do you like most about dogs? What do you like least?
