I’m not sure if I’m ready for this week yet. I’m pretty sure I’m still not thinking clearly.
I know this because I’ve been wishing for puppy all weekend. All weekend. My husband says I should just spend more time with the kids and cuddle with them. I don’t know? It’s not the same thing.
I’ve literally been dreamy with the idea that a sweet and cuddly puppy is just what I need. I’m positive it’s the missing puzzle piece in my life. I will snuggle the puppy and teach it tricks and put clothes on it and stuff. In the good part of my brain, I know this a very bad a idea.
For one, I usually make fun of people that put clothes on their dogs, so I do not know why I have a desire to this.
Another reason I know this is a dumb idea is because I hate dogs. They’re gross and smell. They poop and pee all over your house and when you take them for a walk outside to poop, you have to pick it up. The poop, I mean.
I see the dog people around the neighborhood in the morning and they’re happy. I’ll give you that, but they are usually carrying a recycled grocery bag full of doggie doo. I’m not sure if this disproves my case that a dog will bring me happiness, or confirms it? I mean, if you can be happy picking up crap after your dog, then maybe there’s something about owning the dog that makes it all worth it?
And the number one reason I know this fantasy of mine is a stupid idea is because both of my kids are allergic to dogs. But, then again, as I type that, maybe that is another pro? Get dog. Get rid of kids. Hmmm…I have some serious thinking to do.
If I was a dog owner, not only would I buy clothes for the dog, but I would get one of *these.
I’ve seen these around the neighborhood. It’s a doggie stroller.
I felt like I had to tell you that, because when I saw one for the first time I was all, “What the heck is that?”, and then I realized. It’s a doggie stroller. This gives new meaning to the phrase “walk the dog”, but the owner seems pretty happy about it. I’m not sure, but I think she’s thinking “My life is so wonderful that I have a dog who deserves a $150 stroller, and I’m thrilled I will pick up his poop soon.”
But, if I had a dog I would totally get one. Because I’m all or nothing. If I actually bought a dog, I’m pretty sure I would have already lost my mind and I wouldn’t be able to stop myself from dressing it up, pushing it in a stroller, and picking up it’s poop.
Pray for me, ya’ll.
