I am staying at my friends' house again, taking care of their lovely plants and co-dependent doggies. They're good dogs, just....barky when you come home. They have to have bark collars on when you leave for more than a few hours and leave them outside, because...they bark, and they're not small dogs. They're 4 1/2 years old, from the same litter. They came from a rescue
, and just a few weeks ago the owners of one of their other litter mates decided they would be returning the dog to the rescue, because "he's just too dumb." No, you're
dumb, because your dog is 4 1/2 years old and haven't done any training with it since a puppy class that you dropped out of because it was too much trouble. People like that shouldn't be allowed to have pets.
But anyway...while my friends are in Kauai, I get to spend a week with the fancy big TV with the surround sound, and my cats get to spend a week without me wandering around their house.
