I'm taking part in the March Absolute Write Blog Chain. In the previous post by Heather at For the First Time, she said -
"At this stage in my life, I’m going to let other people in my life parent the dogs. I’m going to be the “aunt” who goes over, feeds them treats, plays with them, and once they’re wound up, say goodbye! I’ll leave the poop-scooping, feeding, training, etc to those who possess the patience to do so!"
I absolutely agree. I have a cat, but she is the chief bug and mouse catcher. She pretty much takes care of herself. She's more the kids' pet than mine. I occasionally refer to her as my "office mascot", because she likes to curl up on my printer.
At this stage in my life, I see dogs much the same as I see babies. Dogs are great, as long as they belong to someone else. Babies are adorable, as long as they aren't mine. I've had dogs at one point or another in my life. I loved them. I don't want one now. I have 4 kids. I don't want any more babies of my own, ever. I am, however, looking forward to Grand-babies, say in about, oh, 10 years.
With that, please visit PolySpace, the next blog in the chain.
