A Short-Lived Love

I have been putting off this post for a few weeks because I was embarrassed about how typical this story was. We randomly decided to get a puppy... Seriously, it even shocked me that we did this. Those who know me know that I am NOT a dog lover and they will not even be surprised by this story. But, out of no where we wanted a dog, found one online for sale, within minutes drove an hour and a half away and bought it! She was a little cockapoo and was so cute and sweet. After five LONG days of zero sleep, locking the poor thing in the bathroom for 10 hours in the day time, baking chicken for the dog cause she wouldn't eat (um, high-maintenance?), Joey never home, and not being able to leave the house once I got home from work, we decided we better rethink the dog situation. Believe it or not, we were both so sad! We gave her to a family we know who unlike us has people home in the day, a backyard, an actual house, and people to play with her. So there ya go, our five days of dog love.

  1. Dave tried to get me to go get a dog yesterday. This post was absolutely perfect timing, since I could just refer him to your blog. Thanks for sharing this experience - you saved us from doing the same thing! He kept arguing "But Colton neeeeeeds a doggie!" What else but this post would have been effective against that?
