For the past year or so, my boyfriend, Michael, has been asking if we can get a dog. I kid you not, this is pretty much a daily occurrence. His tone is always half kidding, but to his dismay (read: sad puppy eyes) I have responded “no” every time, which in a sense, makes me the sound like the bad guy. Don’t get me wrong though, I definitely want a dog or two, and he gets why now is not the right time. I grew up with two amazing dogs and look forward to again experiencing the same unconditional love and playfulness that my dogs brought to our family. Just not right now!! Our recreational space – a necessity for a dog as far as I’m concerned – is non-existent and our schedules are somewhat unpredictable from day to day.
Luckily we have friends with dogs! This weekend we’ll be dogsitting an energetic black lab named Rufio, taking him on walks, bringing him to a local beer festival, and pretending we are dog owners.
Enjoy your first weekend of October! Bring on the pumpkin everything!
