it’s okay to be high maintenance

stuff this dog taught me

I received a notice in the mail saying that there is a newer model of Big B’s ID chip and it was recommended that he get the upgraded chip implanted as well.

Me: We have to get him the new chip ASAP!
Husband: Why?
Me: In case he runs off, we wont be able to find him.
Husband: Are we talking about the dog who wont walk on the grass if it’s wet or who takes a two hour nap after a five minute walk? The dog who wont step outside of the house until you put paw butter on his feet?
Me: Well the ground is hot ..
Husband: The 80 pound dog you carried home because he was to scared to walk in the rain? The one who eats better then I do. He’s going to run off?
Me: I guess we don’t have to do it today …

And it’s all totally worth it. Woof!

    Thank you for sharing your conversation! I’m feeling so relieved that it’s not just me who carries a 50+ lb. dog because he’s too tired to walk anymore! I love your posts and recipes! Thank you, again!

    HaHa you are far from alone, and my husband was upset too because I was wearing his hoodie at the time. It took a couple of washes to get the smell of wet dog out of it. Woof!
