Day 24 – The good, the bad, and the ugly.

I love dogs.  I’ve had dogs all of my life.  But now that my kids are grown and I am enjoying having a house to myself for the first time in forever, I think I’m done having dogs.  

The things about having a dog that I’ll miss:

  • Snuggles on the couch
  • Unconditional love
  • That adorable little face looking up at me.
  • Knowing that the dog will bark if anyone tries to break in.

The things about having a dog that I will NOT miss:

  • Vet bills
  • Groomer bills
  • Having to walk the dog in the rain, snow, and cold
  • Finding a dog sitter when I go out of town
  • Accidents on the floor
  • Smelly couch
  • Dirty butts that have to be trimmed (yuck!) 

The good news is that my daughter and my sister each have 2 dogs.  I can visit and reap all of the good stuff, without having to deal with the bad stuff.  That’s a win!

One thought on “Day 24 – The good, the bad, and the ugly.

  1. Cats can also be expensive. I’m pretty sure if our cat isn’t feeling well on a weekend, I will do my best to nurse it back to health until Monday. I love her, but I don’t want to have to get a second job!
