Now that I think of it, I don't know if I should call him my master. He cleans up after me, brings me food and water, and sometimes treats, maybe I should just call him my friend. That sounds good. Anyway, on to the question.
Dear Quincy, (ed. I need to come up with a cool name for this part of the blog. )
We just got a new dog recently in our household. We had many, many people telling us what kind of dog to get, where to get it from; it was quite a stressful experience. Anyway, now we have him and are having a bit of trouble.
So far he has found a spot in my husband's office that he likes to pee in. It's a small corner (well, it's kind of a rounded corner), but it is starting to stink and we can't get him to stop. Then, a few weeks ago he chewed up one of my daughter's shoes then ended up throwing up a small portion of it on a Very Important Person's foot. It was very embarrassing. I've also caught him near my garden a few times. So far he hasn't gone in there, but I'm worried he's going to get in there and chew up all our food. If he does I think I'm going to lose it. The problem is, no matter what happens, we cannot get rid of the dog. Let's just say people would make that a very difficult time for us if we did.
That's it? Wow, he's a pretty good dog. You should see what I do to irritate my family so they will play with me.
That's really all I'd suggest. Take him for more walks. Have the kids run around the house with him. Heck, hire someone to play with him. If he's too exhausted to get in trouble, he won't get into any. I think he's trying to get your attention.
For the garden, plant some chili peppers around the perimeter. If he gets one of those first, he will leave the rest alone. Trust me.
That's all for today. I need to take nap. A dog's life is hard you know.
