Blog With a Dog

Okay, I have a little bit of time to write something today. The kids are both at school; the school has not called. All is well. I have to go teach soon, but for now, I can sit here and…

BARK!

Well what do you want?

BARK!

You want to go out? Ugh. Fine. I will take you out, but not for a long walk. You can go out and pee, and then I have to write something and leave.

Okay, good. You peed. Just lie down over there and pant contentedly. Now, what was I going to write about today? I think I had an idea, back before that…

BARK!

Hey! I just took you out! You’re not going out again. Now quit it. Stop pawing me. I need to think of something to write about. No, don’t give me that look, I’m not…

BARK!

Seriously, you just went out. What is your…oh, wait. Did you get breakfast yet? You’re probably hungry. Okay, hold on, I’ll go get you some food.

Phew. The dog is fed and watered and empty of pee, and I can get back to writing. I guess it will have to be something short now though, because I have to leave soon, and I’ve just spent 15 minutes of my probably-less-than-an-hour dealing with that dog. At least she seems to be happily eating over there now. Wish she would eat a little slower, but anyway, back to thinking of an idea. Thinking…thinking…thinking…

BARK!

NO! NO NO NO! You had food, you went out, WHAT?! Don’t look at the door like that, we are not going on a walk. We can go on a walk later. You already went out. Although if you have to do more than just pee, and I didn’t give you enough time earlier, I don’t want to be responsible for that mess later on. Okay, FINE! One more trip around the block and that’s IT! Okay? Yeah, yeah, wag your tail. I’m getting up.

Satisfied? You dragged me around outside, did not go to the bathroom, licked all of the neighbors, and tried to get a squirrel. Sounds like a pretty full morning. Can you leave me alone now?

BARK!

Ow, stop, no, what are you doing? You can’t… Okay, fine, you can sit in my lap, but it makes it very hard to type or think of ideas when you are whacking me in the face with your tail. Can you settle down please? No, I can’t pat you because I need both of my hands to type! Fine, I will type with one hand, very slowly, and pat you with the other one. Are you finally happy? Ack! Don’t lick my face! You don’t know where it’s been! Now I have like ten minutes to write an entire post, and I have no ideas. I usually write about stuff I’m doing or thinking about or going through, but today all I have been dealing with is YOU! So what am I supposed to write about?!

BARK!
