It's a Dog's Life
“If you don't own a dog, at least one, there is not necessarily anything wrong with you,but there may be something wrong with your life.” Roger Caras
My dog, Mack, has had a sinus infection and for the past 10 days has been out of sorts. The antibiotics have finally kicked in and he's almost back to his usual self which is a huge relief.
The process of watching his transformation from hyper-active to slug-active and back again has been surprisingly emotional for our family; surprisingly because he's "just" a dog.
However, there is no such thing as "just" a pet when it comes to family dynamics. If you own an animal, you know what I mean. If you don't, well, I'm sorry. I understand the frustrations of hanging with Team Phenix which always seems to have an extra four legs involved.
You may not appreciate the yellow hair which stays on black clothing WAY past the first washing. I'm sorry that the welcome at the door is a tad too energetic. My apologies for the companion swimmer in the pool.
I'm also sorry you're missing out on all of the humor.
The video below is an instant classic for me (and it makes me thankful my yellow pup isn't a drooler!)
