tales of something simple - how our canine children have prepared us to be good parents (someday)

i believe

Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.

all types of chaos

how our canine children have prepared us to be good parents (someday)

1. We don't tolerate this kind of behavior

2.  We feed them fresh fruit and vegetables with their dinner and for dessert

3.  They get baths whether they kick and wriggle or not.  When you’re dirty dude, you get bathed.

4.  When the potty training period ended, you didn’t get a reprieve when you had an accident on the carpet.  You got in some damn trouble.

5.  They are rewarded for good behavior.

6.  I have taken their temperatures and yes it was with a rectal thermometor.  In case you are concerned, that thermometer is now in a plasitc ziploc bag in the medicine cabinet that reads “DO NOT USE…this was in Miller’s ass.”

7.  We get up with them in the middle of the night when they need to retch up a rawhide or have massive diarehea all over the yard (thankfully never the house).  We’ve even stayed up together, all night, just to nurse one of their furry asses back to health.

8.  We rush home from work to feed them by 6:30…like picking up a baby from daycare.

9.  We pay babysitters…and yes we call them that…to watch them when we aren’t home for an extended period of time.

10.  When they misbehave, they get in trouble.  This does include time out.

11.  If they are going to play in the mud, they are going to have to pay.

12.  They grow out of shit. Collars.  Harnesses.  Always buying new crap for them to fit into or play with.

13.  We give them medicine when they are sick.  It just happens to be wrapped in cheese.  I hear you don’t do that with kids.

14.  When we go out on dates, we talk about them.

15.  We let them snuggle with us.  No exceptions, all the time.  Except when we have sexy time.  For that, we turn on Little Mermaid.

We really don’t do that.  I swear.
