He slowly got off of his cot and walked right up to the door of his cage, trying to lick my fingers each of the three times I walked by. My adorable friend Trish drove us to PetSmart and home while I tried to calm the quiet dog that turned into a tornado of squeals and hyperactivity. I am sure he was more confused than I can imagine.
365 days of snuggles later I am so glad that I brought him home. He is such a sweetheart and he is exactly what I need on all of David’s second shifts and after my long days.
Apparently getting a dog together is a big deal in a relationship so I would like to point out that David and I have weathered this storm fairly well. We’ve had discussions on whether Chewy is allowed in the bed (I’m a firm yes on this one, David a firm not-ever), if he’s getting enough exercise (we try but we can do better), and when the time is right for him to get another fur sibling (need a fenced in yard). Nobody has lost their marbles and we’ve compromised pretty well through it all. And anyway, it’s just like having a baby, right??? So hey, it’ll be smooth sailing when that ship comes around! Easy peasy!
