I am trying very hard to get everything done that needs to be done before the cold catches up to me. I have a few things to do in my yard and then I need to tackle inside stuff. That is the part I don’t like. I need to wash windows and curtains. I think I am going to have to bale up the dog hair under my bed. Maybe I can sell it to someone and get a coat made out of it. Momma Said, “Make use of what you got.”
I thing Amber (AKA Mudpuppy) is part sheep. I have never seen a dog shed as much as she does and still have a full coat. If I had saved it all I do think I could have knitted a blanket. I have not been home much lately and she has not gotten her regular brushing, so when she comes inside her hair is everywhere. Momma Said, “That is just part of being a pet parent.”
I don’t really mind because as I have said before the more I am around people, the more I like my dogs and cats. They are so non assuming and pleasurable to be around. They don’t ask for anything but affection and food. They are my zen and I really rely on them to keep me centered. I can discuss my day with them and finally unwind. It is better than going to a bar and getting wasted.
Mom never really wanted pets in the house and now that I have my own home they are just as much a part of it as I am. I don’t care if there is hair everywhere and mud tracked in. I guess it would be the same if I had kids, (not the hair part) but you never know. I love my fur babies and I will take the good with the bad.
