Morning Meanderings… The Trials and Triumphs of Owning Three Dogs
Good morning! Friday! Lots of good adventures coming today and throughout the weekend and I am sitting here with COFFEE CUP on the cusp of my day but instead… doing nothing.
It will get busy soon.
My regular readers know we have three dogs. I did not mean to have three dogs. Two years ago we were down to just Bailey, our now 16-year-old shih tzu. Then Sammy (estimated at the time to be a year and a half) came along in April 2012… a stray, abandoned, unwanted cute as a button and homeless and we took him in. Three months later we rescued Mater, an abused Beagle/Basset hound, about 4 months old and in need of a “forever home”.
It’s funny because while they can be really fun they are also a real handful. For instance, there is no such thing as giving one of them a taste of whatever you are eating… IE a burger or popcorn. Nope, that is three faces looking up at you so everything is three tastes. On the bright side… I think I may eat less
Just this week I was going to give them a bone. I buy these real meat bones from the meat department at our grocery store. They like them a lot and the vet says it is good for their teeth. I realized I only had two bones left in the package I had bought. Two bones… three dogs. I had some rawhide bones too so I gave Sammy and Mater the real bones, and gave Bailey, who doesn’t have as many teeth as the younger ones, a rawhide bone.
I am not proud of what I did.
Well, it was like having three children and one received something different. Bailey looked at the other bones… then at his. Then…
I felt like poo.
Thankfully I dug around in the refrigerator and did find another lone bone from another package that I was saving because I did not have enough to give all of them. Lesson learned. I need three of everything.
In about 45 minutes I have coffee with a friend, then a meeting at the library, followed by a few errands to run and ending up at the gym by early afternoon. Book review up later and later yet… a fun kickoff tot he weekend post you will not want to miss.
How is your weekend shaping up? Any plans?
