Dog People

The past few days Heidi and I have been watching Sully, her brother's dog. He is a nice dog and it has been fun to walk him and have him around the house. The only problem we have encountered so far is sleeping. We stayed a couple nights at Heidi's parent's house with Sully and he insisted on sleeping on the bed with us. Mostly at or on my feet. That would not be a problem, except that he is a big dog. Big enough to hog a section of the bed and keep us from a decent night's sleep for several nights in a row. Aside from that, he is a big dog trapped in our upstairs apartment, and he kind of reminds me of the dirty polar bears at Como Park. I feel bad for a big, strong animal reduced to freaking out at the squirrels he can see through the windows. All in all, this has been a good experience to help us realize that, at least for now, we are not dog people.

Oh perhaps just not BIG dog people :) The little ones are much easier to manage in smaller spaces - and don't take up as much room if the happen to hop up on the bed!

Sorry Heidi, I'm with Tim. No small dogs. In fact, being a dog person takes a lot of committment. I should know, and I think that I'm falling down on the job. I need to change my attitude, but frankly, I'm tired of the hair, the rushing home to let her out, the obnoxious stealth licks... I'm kinda dreamin' about what life would be like without dog...too bad the boys love her. Rats. Love you guys--Sally
