nice things

When you have pets, you just cannot have anything nice.   Or at least fur-free.

I bought some throw rugs this weekend.  And of course, the first thing Shirley does is lay on them.

I also put my bed skirt back on my bed, but, like before, it is covered in dog hair once again.   Shirley will lean up against something, then slide down the item she is leaning on and lay down. SO. ANNOYING.


can't touch this.

I got Shirley a bone last night from PetSmart.  Which she ate in like an hour.  She gets so protective over her bones.  At least with the cats around.  They will walk by her and she will growl.  And the cats look at her like, “Shirley, you crazy, we don’t want that nasty bone!”

She is so protective of her bones, that she even puts them in her food to monitor while she eats.

Silly dog.

forgivable friday

Shirley has been getting into the trash again.

And when I ask her if she has been in the trash, she gives me this face:

No, how could I stay mad at that?

do you understand…?

I recently just finished reading The Art of Racing in the Rain.

It is a story about a family told through the eyes of their dog.  It was pretty good.  It made me wonder….is my dog really just like us?  But she chooses to act like a dog because it is what we expect of her?

I asked her this morning, “Shirley, do you understand what I am saying??”  She cocked her head to the side.  “Shirley, if you understand me, give me kisses!” Shirley then turned away.

Well, it’s nice to think that they understand us.
