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.
