Rhapsody in Bloo

A dogumentary of my life with my hooman

You know you’re a real dog owner when…

dog blanketAfter living for over 4 years without a pet, the art of becoming a doggie mamma again continues to amuse me. It amazes me the things I now get excited about and also the things that don’t actually gross me out anymore. You know you’ve gone off the deep end have become a true doggie mamma when:

  • Your favorite birthday gift is a blanket made of all the pictures of your dog that you recently posted on Facebook (thanks again Kim).
  • Your shipment of lavender-scented poop bags arrives at your doorstep and you’re not only excited to open it but you can’t wait to take the dog out so you can use them.
  • You drive into your driveway and you breathe a sigh of relief because no window screens are missing, no windows are broken and the dog is still safely inside
  • You no longer care that there are paw prints on your car seats and nose drool on the car windows
  • You sacrifice a bike ride for a long game of stick
  • In your free time you volunteer to help raise money to build a dog park in your community (and recruit your friends to help with events – thanks ladies, you know who you are)
  • You’d much rather stay home cuddling with your pooch than going out on a date – men are too much trouble

Owning a dog is a true lesson in patience and love and I wouldn’t change it for the world.

  1. This is definitely off the deep end material KVT9: “Your shipment of lavender-scented poop bags arrives at your doorstep and you’re not only excited to open it but you can’t wait to take the dog out so you can use them.”
    Question is: is the lavender scent strong enough to overcome the contents smell? If so, where do I get some?
